I had a couple of small fillet steaks in the freezer. The temperatures were warm. The sun was shining. It was time to do a steak and baked potatoes on my pellet smoker.
I started by making 5 or 6 slices almost all the way through a couple of baking potatoes.
I put thinly sliced onion in each of the slices.
I put a half strip of bacon on each potato.
I wrapped each in foil.
I'd taken the left grate out of the Louisiana Grills smoker and preheated it to 350 F.
I put the potatoes in and cooked them for 45 minutes.
I moved the plate covering the direct flame grill grate.
Then I put the left grate back on and turned the grill up to 450 F.
While the grill was getting up to 450 F, I gave both sides of the steaks a generous amount of Louisiana Grills Chophouse Steak Rub.
When the grill was up to temperature, I put the steaks on over the direct flame grate. I let them sear for 30 seconds and then rotated them 90 degrees to get a nice crosshatch and seared for 30 seconds more.
I flipped the steaks and did the same to the other side.
I moved the steak to the main part of the grill and smoked for about 6 minutes a side to an internal temperature of 135 F.
I took the steaks and potatoes in and let them rest for 5 minutes.
We like our steaks sliced thin and then served.
We served them with She Who Must Be Obeyed's great deli style coleslaw.
It was just steak and potato. It was just great.
