Hi Jim, I do my steaks on the grill. I allow the steaks to come to
room temp, brush both sides with olive oil and lightly salt and
peppered.I fire up the gas grill to high for at least 15 minutes
before hand. Very hot. Toss the steaks on the grill, I think I allow
about two to three minutes per side. Seared outside with a pink
inside.Let rest a few minutes. It`s the only way my wife and myself
like our steaks.

Don, I do mine the same way if they're not too thick. The ones from Costco
and Sam's are too thick for me to manage that. So, I fire up my grill to
very hot just like you, sear each side for a minute or two, then turn the
center burner way down and the outside ones to about medium. Cook them on
semi-indirect heat like that until they're the right color.

And, if the OP is after a good book on grilling (not barbecue), I like the
book "How to Grill." Lots of very good newbie advice there.

Since we're on the subject of books....

For the fundametalists, I would like to point out an unnoticed but enormous
global waste - books. Do you how many books are published in Great Britain
each year? Think of a figure, double it and times by your age: 206,000. More
than any other country in the world. America vomits out 172,000. Oman, by
compararison, publishes seven. Niger, five. That's ~new~ books. And it's an
underestimate. Given an average print run of, say, 5,000, that makes 5.85
billion books a year. Each costs about 1.30 GBP to make. How much cash is
that? How many trees is that? How much trapped CO2 released back into the
atmosphere? How much bleach and chemicals? How much power to run plant, dyes
and glues and packaging and marketing? How much transport? How much effort?

In the UK, we buy 296m books a year and read fewer than a fifth of them.
Paper publishing is a bigger polluter and waster of resources than all the
air miles flown. Every book could be written once and put on the internet.
But the eco-sermonisers never mention any of that. They never go for books.

Rant over

Graeme....proud to work in the world of publishing!!

Don't laugh... When I wheeled my smoker out into the Texas sun the other
day, in short order it was reading 135 degrees before I had even put
charcoal in it.

Yup. Half of my cookers are charcoal burners. Only two are propane. One
burns 100% hardwod pellets from a dozen or so different trees - mesquite,
hickory, alder, apple, cherry, oak, etc.

LOL
Right now, my Stoker is reading 175 in my Stump's and 151 in my #5 Kamado.
Neither has had a fire since Saturday night. It *is* sunny outside and the
Stump's is black, the Kamado is terra cotta red. No wonder I can't cold
smoke anything except for 2 or 3 days a year.
