WOW what a fantastic job!!!! PDT_Armataz_01_37.gifpoints.gif

How did you get that nice cut in the Legs?

And how did those steaks turn out so pink and you seared for 6 Min a side?? What temp do you 'sear' at?

My wife is WOWing these pics and now I'm in big trouble if I don't pump out this meal SOON!!!!

Thanks Eaglewing! biggrin.gif

The king crabs I buy already have a slit in the shell..they are easy to open and eat that way. :)
I smoked the steaks first for an hour and 15 minutes at 225 degrees in the drum (flipping them once)...then heated my gas grill on high to get the grate nice and hot.... kept the flame on high and seared them for 6 minutes on each side. Some of the steaks I do are thicker and take 7 minutes per side.
I like mine medium rare...
Sometimes I am afraid that I will cook them too long in the smoker.. an hour of smoke is usually plenty of smoke flavor.
Hope this helps!
Glad you and your Mrs. like the meal... I hope it turns out well for you! PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif


Thanks again!

THNX for the info back Jeanie,

I guess what I meant by the searing time was I have cooked entire steaks at only 4 mins a side before with my grill at 500* and I like mine medium rare too...

Anyway, so I suppose yours really are pretty thick to not over cook at 7min a side... or your grill is just not as hot as mine is when I have it cranked up...

I get the picture, and will be trying this REAL SOON, Thank you again.

I am going to have to move closer to you so I can be available for smokes like this. Meat & Taters. Can't never go wrong here.

Jeanie, excellent choice of flavor combos and textures. I also want to thank you for sharing the pics, great presentation. I know you've still got your boots on... and your groove too.

Awww DANG! Jeanie... awesome as usual. You know the points are coming ;o). We did steak and crab for mothers day... I'm going to have to talk to my supplier about splitting those legs!

Very nice. Had to also make some comments below...




RB - smoker, grill, or even the oven is way better than boiling or nuking.

HHook... I'm from Colorado... that was just RUDE!biggrin.gif

AK - I think they really need to be thawed and drained to be the best.

That's it - sorry for hi-jacking your thread, CG!

You're sure welcome Eaglewing.. Hope they turn out well for you. :)

Thank you Caveman! Come on down, there's plenty of room here. biggrin.gif


Rich..Thank you so much! I DO have my tall boots on... it's rattesnake season..lol biggrin.gif


Thank you Tracey! The split legs really make opening the legs a breeze. Sounds like you had a nice Mother's day!PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif


Thanks again friends!

Thanks for the info . Usually I just pull the legs out of the freezer and steam or boil them. I'm definitely trying some smoked crab soon, and I will make sure it's thawed first.

Thanks again.

Well, I didn't have any crab legs handy, but I did have some whole precooked lobsters. So, I smoked some sirloin tip steaks along with 2 whole lobsters.

Dang! they were good.

Thank you Cowgirl for the inspirationPDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

A woman after my own heart! LOL! Hi Cowgirl! that made my mouth water. I so love your barrel smoker, is there a thread around here that shows how you made that? or tutorial?

Thanks Squirrel! It's not very detailed but here is an old link about the drum smoker... http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/for...ad.php?t=65785

I think the link on my blog might be more detailed.

I love the thing....I built it over 2 years ago and have used the heck out of it. biggrin.gif

I am a little late to the party here but I think I am going to have to try this meal sometime. I love Crab but rarely make it at home. Seems like a fun easy way to cook it and make it taste great! Thanks Cowgirl!!!!
