So last year we took our son to Hells Kitchen in Vegas for his 18th.......so we are like what on earth can we do this year to at least come close........

Well to match the “scene” of Vegas we spent the morning in the Jeep cruising the local strip......this is 45 min drive from the house....

Next up was some THICK prime NYs!!
7154962E-DFBC-4793-99F2-4ADBD25E2068.jpeg

These are screamed “take me home” when I saw them!
B172EE37-2A70-4474-8C1A-3DE21694FEF8.jpeg

Heavily seasoned them with kinders and some Weber steak and chop.....I recently found this and it is a SPOG blend with lemon peal and citric acid.....it tastes very similar to my own SPOG w/lemon pepper so it’s the easy button!

getting the copper pot prepped.....starting the coals over the burner......just a nice evening for grilling!!!!

Coals are ready, now getting a couple splits fired up.....

since we were competing with Gordon Ramsey we had to add some “flare” to the NYs!

just a little Cajun sprinkle and a light coat of EVOL and in they go!

I find this very pleasing to the eye! Just magical.......

Next the NYs get their turn touching the magic!

just love this!!! Hells Kitchen didn’t have this!

so here is the token copper pot VC fire pic!

after 18 mins I pulled the Lobster.....just natural heat kissed!!!

I moved the NY up top to let them come up to 130 after their flame sear!

Man oh Man!!!!
CE9D7B30-EC66-4930-8117-D5B4BDD5659B.jpeg

the plate was dressed with my wife’s creamy Marsala sauce and some GR Yukon mash.....had to have something from the Hells Kitchen experience to rekindle that memory in the boy....then topped off with some seared shrooms and garden fresh chopped herbs!!!
564C20FF-BA39-4C02-A3CD-4AD795866BC2.jpeg

Pure birthday goodness......and 1/4 the price of the GR meal......the boy gave his thumbs up!

You nailed that one! Definitely better than HK in my opinion! The food looks awesome, as does the dessert... but I sure love the copper pot and especially the way you capture the fire almost dancing!

thanks Jim and just make the trek and the copper pot will make the fire! Oh and you will have to fight the Boy! He is about 6-2 now....

That is an absolutely excellent meal !!
thanks gator!

Civil, I don't know that you can top that next year...
Thanks and I know.....I know.....but have another year to think about it!

Looks great . Best way to cook a steak for sure .
Thanks Chop! I have to agree, flame searing is amazing!

Looks delicious
Thanks peachy! It hit the spot for sure!

Thanks Ryan! My wife has the mash and sauce down just like HC...the meat cut at HC is still a bit better but flavor wise a cast iron sear can’t match a flame seat IMOP.

the fore was dancing for sure....there is a chill in the air so very nice standing next to it!

Thanks MJB! I’m with you on the every day meal! It would require a 5 mile hike with it though.....but hey that’s perfect to!

Phenomenal! And I am with Brokenhandle Brokenhandle , love the fire pics!

BTW, any leftovers? If so, I am on my way for breakfast!
Thanks WHB! The fire was posing so I just obliged.....lol!

Leftovers......just enough for some steak and eggs.....but the boy will be guarding them.....I wouldn’t even think about messing with that....we will have to try some apricots wood on some.....it’s just drying nicely....
