Ok , the wife just walked in with a monster 4-4.5" thick tomahawk. Im thinking on running the komodo up hot and going for a crosshatch sear maybe about 3 minutes rotate then flip and repeat. suggestions? Maybe sous vide a bit then sear? this will be my thickest piece of meat to date out side of roasts

Lucky you! I'd go sous vide then torch it, hard to screw that up. RAY

Smoke to 110°-115° and then reverse sear on a screaming hot grill or CI pan to 130°-135°.

Ok I went with a traditional screaming hot sear about 3 minutes rotate, another 3 and flip and repeat, threw down a diffuser and smothered the coals. Tossed some butter on and pulled when the IT was about 115. Foiled and let it rest. It coasted to about medium . I should have pulled it 10 deg earlier but we still stood over it and ate most of it right there in the kitchen.

The last was the dogs standing around waiting for their fair share... yea right, tomahawk no, beef sticks soaked in tomahawk juice, ok.

Looks like you did good. We always share a couple of pieces with skidmard, after all he's out there guarding the pit.

Point for sure

Mighty Tasty!
I used to trim the Fat off of my Old Lab's share of my Steak.
Fat's not good for Dogs, so I ate the Fat!!!
