i checked my Theropen against a cheapo
the grill is ready
the rest between the smoke and the sear is to help keep more of it medium rare instead of medium rare in the center and getting more cooked as you go toward the outdide wjich is well done. That trick works a lot better with about a 1 1/4" - 1 1/2" steak. It was the first time I tried it with a tri'tip. It was fork tender.
