I got the urge to have steak today (thanks to Justin's tenderloin thread).  Just happened to have 2 nice ribeyes for this occasion.  

As this was a bit of a spur of the moment meal, I didn't think much about shooting qview until they were already on the grill.  These got marinated for a couple hours in Daddy Hinkles steak marinade, then dusted with a touch of Big Poppas Double Secret Steak Rub right before they went in the Rec Tec.

My setup:  
  1. Pull the grease shield out the the Rec Tec, lay some foil down in the bottom of the barrel to catch any grease drippings.
  2. Replace the right side stainless grate with the searing grates (GrillGrates).
  3. Preheat the RT to 500*.
  4. In go the steaks!  4 minute sear, then rotate a half turn for 4 more minutes (to get those pretty restaurant style sear marks).
  5. Flip steaks and sear for 5 minutes on 2nd side.
These shots I took when I opened the grill to flip the steaks to side B.



There are some who believe you can't get good sear marks using a pellet grill...


My plate...Mrs. Red made a big pot of green beans and new potatoes.


Couple of closer looks...



Best steak I've had in a while!  Like my Granddad used to say, so good it'll make your tongue slap your brain!  Melt-in-your-mouth tender, juicy and very flavorful!  

Thanks for coming by and checking it out!

Thanks Willie!

IMO, since most pellet pushers don't get as hot as a charcoal or gas grill, the GrillGrates are a must if your gonna grill and sear with your pellet rig. Don't know quite how they work, but they're designed to radiate and intensify the heat. I've read of users of GrillGrates who've checked with an infrared thermometer, and they claim that they can reach grate-level temps of 100*-150* higher than the cooker's set temp. I don't own an IR therm to verify this, but that would mean that if I set my Rec Tec to it's max temp of 500*, with those GrillGrates in place I'm actually grilling my steaks at between 600-650*.
