    I posted last week a Ribeye with smoke. For those that I missed it I just did another while smoking a pork butt and baked beans. Might as well use the energy and smoke efficiently [​IMG].

    Any excuse to tinker and smoke, smoke, and more smoke.
    Here is a 1 1/4 # bone in about 3/4 inch thick, nice marblelng. You may be thinking that is awful thin for a smoke, but just wait.

    In the raw.

    Here it is pulled off at 130'. It was very soft to the touch.

    I then fired up the Weber Gas grill and got it up to 600' then it happened.
    I was reading the posts here and forgot about the Ribeye and heard the flames shooting out of the sides and thought oh, S#$$. I ran over and opened the door, and here's what I found.

    Well, I thought it was ruined for sure and I wouldn't be posting this.

    But, after turning once and removing it, here it is, the juices flowing to the top.

    Thanks Bubba, It was well worth the extra effort. Just added the extra flavor that we smokers love and is lacking in a regular BBQ. I don't think you'll go wrong if you watch the temps. That's the important thing, Im sure you know.

    Good luck!!

    Call it luck, it could have been worse and I got the fire
    extinguisher out and ruined it. When I opened the lid it almost singed my face.[​IMG]

    It turned out great by mistake I guess.

    thanks yall for the help, nice lookin ribeye ron, I got a pack of 5 new york strips about an inch thick im going to smoke saturday. i checked out the posts and the recipes and will give it a try, thanks guys
     
  11. Actually, that is a REALLY good method of cooking the steaks. A slow smoke, then a quick sear even with the flames seals in the juices.

    Nah, you didn't "save it" you cooked it just right.

    With the rib-eyes especially, sooooo much fat in them they tend to flare up more than a newyork or t-bone.

    Ya done good!
