So the wife declared today that she was craving a cherry wood flamed ribeye for dinner and she backed up the craving with some 1.25 inch thick’s Double R!!!!

So I fired up the X-Fire with some coals and cherry wood for an over the flame the old school way!

A view of the prepared flames of cherry!

Lowered the grate to be right in the flames!

Now added them heavily seasoned with SPOG and a splash of lemon pepper & sugar.

Just a perspective view of from the flame side!

After turn number one! Man my mouth is watering!

The view after the final turn, as the flames reduced, I kept lowering the grate to keep them in the searing flames.

Ya just can't buy a quality meal like that at a steakhouse. The dusting of sugar is a new one for me. What does it do for the steak?

Thanks Hawg.....there is a rustic steakhouse in northern Idaho that cooks everything over active flame. But they get about 48 bills for a ribeye........I take clients there but work pays the bill!

The sugar is to aid in developing a nice sear color in a short time. It also adds a hint of sweetness like a prime cut has naturally.

Thanks Ryan! Our fam loves to layout a nice plate and then eat it at the coffee table watching a tv show.....just our thing!

The flames are magic to me and they compel me to share them with others!!!! Lol. Thanks

It's all just a wonderful beautiful post, jaw-dropping. I'd give it three likes if I could, the Yukons, the meat, the shrooms. I'll try, like like like! RAY

Thanks chop! It seems crazy building a fire for a 15 min cook but then after the first bite it’s like ok that is crazy worth it!
