Kinda like sous vide , but in the smoker . I had a nice ribeye left
over from a couple of nights ago when I fixed fajitters , and it needed
to be cooked before it spoiled . So last night when I put the pork butt
in the smoker I also put that steak in . Seasoned as I usually do then
sealed in foil to retain moisture and keep it from "over smoking" while
it cooked . Average temp overnight was around 200°F and I just sampled
the steak . It's so tender it can be cut with a plastic fork , melts in
your mouth and tastes fantastic . I wouldn't fire the smoker up for a
steak or two , but since I was doing the pork butt I figgered why not .
I'm glad I did !

Interesting, never would have tried that. If you did it again, would
you eat it "as is" or would you toss it on a hot grill for some sear?

Forget where I saw it, but tried an oven method once. Put the steak in
a 200 degree oven until it gets to about 100 degrees and finish on the
grill. OK, but not worth repeating.

I like a good sear , but it's not essential ... I tasted it straight
off the smoker and it tastes great ... it's going on a couple of slices
of bread for my lunch . I'm the only one here that eats beef now , and
I've still got a couple of packages of 2 steaks that from when my wife
could still eat beef . I can only eat one at a meal , gotta get creative
with the other sometimes .

Very little if any . I knew that if I didn't seal it up it would be
so smoky as to be inedible . Made that mistake with some chicken leg
quarters once ...

So you basically have a small steamed, way overcooked unsmoked chuck
roast at the 3X teh cost and no flavor (or probably juices) except
the spices. And your expiring steak festered even more in teh
danger zone for a 4-5 hours extra whi;e you slept, liek magic!

I'm not quite feeling the beefy love like you are. Fire up the
smoker, put the steal right above the coals, grill steak, eat steak,
remove teeth, go to bed.
