This was the crews 4th year to cook steaks for their fundraiser. Only 350 steaks this year so weather aside a walk in the park lol. Here is what it looked like when I started loading up the Cambros. Forecast said this and thunderstorms all day. Shortly after this it was pouring buckets. Here is the beef, 350 strip Isteaks 3 of us banged out seasoning in 45 minutes. Light layers of both Everglades and Redbeard Seasonings Steak and Brisket rub. Redbeard was donated by our buddy Brad the owner.

Amazingly after we got two 12x12 tents set up the weather cleared. We had good weather other than a short sprinkle and a short hail storm. It was so windy both tents broke so we took the brunt of the small hail. The wind really played havoc on trying to keep the charcoal grill temp below the inferno of hell temp. We went with myself and Meni on the grill, Eddie on temp and cooked transfer and his Dad on finish and storage. Finish us always brushed with a commercial garlic "butter" and a light finish dust of seasoning. I didn't get a lot of cooking pics as we were pretty busy managing the fires but here are a few

All as requested were cooked to 140F. Banged them all out in about 3 1/2 hours. They were pretty darn delicious. As usual my butt was kicked by the effort. Standing on concrete all day with plantar fasciitis in my left foot was no bueno lol. I'll recover just in time to do 30 butts for buddies grad parties this weekend. Thanks for looking!
 
Swear I smelled that in the wind... LOL Looks fantastic and thank you for helping. Glad to see some experience on the grill. Been to a few of those type of events and the stuff was either raw or ruined. Nice call on the Everglades base rub.
 
Awesome effort Jeff . I agree , those steaks look great . Nice camera work too .
Safe bet with the 140 . Done right that brings some great beef flavor .
 
Outstanding effort! Looks like y'all took the weather in stride....
Thanks Keith!
They look great. Makes me hungry for 1. Awesome work.
Thanks!
Wow Jeff that was quite a feat battling the wind and rain. Steaks looks great and I'm sure your efforts were appreciated!
Hopefully $$$ was raised !

Keith
Thanks Keith. A little less than most years but did ok. The new principal didn't make it a weekly point of emphasis Over the last month and it showed. Usually we do 400-450.
Looks like you nailed it. Great work 👌
Thanks man
Only 350 steaks huh? Y'all did good. And from what I see....I'd be in line for one!

Jim
They are pretty tasty

Ha it was sure windy enough it could have easily made it up your way. That Everglades is a good all purpose seasoning for sure.

Thanks Rich. They are awesome at 140 straight off the grill. Carryover usually outs them at medium to medium well. It's impossible to please everyone so we shoot for that which most are ok with. We offered to do some medium rare pans but they don't want the headache of managing doneness when they make up the dinner boxes.

That should garner you a few bonus points when standing in front of the Pearly Gates, nice work Jeff! RAY

Good on ya'

Looks like a great cook for an excellent cause. Props.

I had scarlet fever as a kid in the late '50's so nothing to do but feel miserable , listen to short wave radio at night, and TV during the day. I always enjoyed the price is right back then (never cared for the newer version). So here is one from 1958. The bonus prize is pretty nice. So is the plane!


Dayum Jeff that's a lot of meat. I knew you could handle it though! Nice work!

Jeff, well done!

Thanks guys! Appreciate the positivity
