I am thinking of smoking strip steaks but only smoking them long enough to get a good smoke on them, then grilling them on my gas grill. Any advice would be helpful. How long should I smoke them?
How thick are they? Whenever I do steaks that way I usually smoke for about 45 minutes then onto the grill or hot pan (pittsburgh blackened).
The lower temp the better. Technically you would want to cold smoke your steak then toss it on the heat but cold smoking may not be an option.
Make sure your steak isn't too close to the heat since you don't want to cook it, but I would do around 200 for 30-45 minutes depending on thickness.
