    Joe, a little too well done for me :lol: . No, it's perfect! I agree Dutch, just the way I like it! Do you marinade those, or special seasonings before grilling?

    Sounds good Dutch, what time shall I be there? I love my beef! That steak is 2" thick.. it was great. I cooked it on my weber with cowby charcoal for some great smokey flavor.

    Hi Mack, I never marinate this kinda steak. I also cook it straight up neekid, not even salt and pepper. I flame it a little and close the lid wait until the steak doesn't stick to the grill flip it over and repeat. Then I move it to the side of the grill where there are no coals and let the hot coals finish the job making sure that the tenderloin is far away from the hot coals, the strip loin part can take the heat better.

    The best way to cook a nice thick steak. I use the same method on my ribeyes, but I do add salt and pepper. I don't know why, cause I always feel the seasonins burn off. Very hot coals, listen to the sizzle, flip, listen. move to the cool side, and let finish. Let them rest, plate up, EAT. Sit back, listen to wife talk about her day, and think about cooking another steak.

    There's a very easy way to do it by touch. This is as good of an explanation as I've read.


    After trying it with a few steaks, you'll get a feel for how it feels when you press the steak and you won't have to use your hand anymore.
