Alan probably threw some salami in it and called it steak. Slackers are also cheap.

Just put them in a George foreman grill. No need to reinvent the wheel

Throw this twist on it. I have a friend that swears by it. He also likes a Pittsburgh sear on his too.

I've seen that Jed but have not tried it. I actually like a cold red center .

If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes, I wouldn't believe it. You sure ain't got to share your steak with anyone.

You can keep your George Foreman Hook. I guess anything would be suitable for that tough Florida beef. Just couldn't disrespect my beef in such a way.

First run with some Imabalancer beef. Beautiful. The sear was perfect. A bottle of fox grape wine, fresh spinach salad, wilted kale, sauteed mushrooms and onions and country fries. It can't get much better than this. Steak as steak should be done. I'm pleased.

You can cook at what ever temp you want it at. I like the center warm enough to stay warm while I'm eating but that's all.
Jo that stake looks great, when I get back to S GA. I'm coming to see you.

Come on down and we'll give it a go. Won't take but a minute or two and you'll be eating. From what I've read the sear is critical to cooking a steak right. Am pleased to learn this is true because I'd have hated to waste $4 on scrap metal for nothing.

I have been having nose bleeds all day and couldn't figure out why until I opened this thread. :lol: Deepshy..... Ah south, I am a slacker and proud of it, I've been honing that skill for years, but just to educate you boys from the south and S.E. of the south, you know that flat skinny state that is full of sand. Here in the Wild West we call that thing Joe built a Bar-b-que, I just call it a grill so not to confuse you boys. For the record I would never put a steak in my new pizza cooker. I prefer a good tenderloin topped with pepperoni, crushed Cheetos and strawberries cooked in the microwave for 15 minutes. :lol: :lol:

Not poking fun at all just stating the obvious. Just go ahead and admit you've run a steak through the contraption. You know you have. We just want to know what kind of sear it put on it.

Please don't provoke him Jo. I'm not going to show you the picture of him in his game day outfit. It will burn your eyes.

Jo I don't think you are gonna get a patent for the Steak-n-ater. In fact I hope you don't get slapped with a cease and desist from whoever already holds the patent on the "park grill". http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/141580157805

Congrats, you have re-invented the wheel! :banana:

That steak dinner plate looked awesome. If you want to get the full use out of your charcoal, put sliced taters with some onion, seasoning, butter in a foil packet for each person and slap those on the grill. When they are about done, move them off the hot part and throw on your steaks.
