When I saw the show, all I could think about was how similar the temps were to the temps in my smoker. According to the chef that I saw, steaks that are first smoked and then seared should turn out perfectly. I have some 3/4 inch strip steaks that I am going to experiment with soon. I will post pics when I do.
I think that I could smoke the steaks until 115-120F before searing. My wife likes a more well done steak and maybe this will help make her well done steak juicier.
