It was my birthday. I had bought a prime grill trimmed rib steak. I could just fire up my Weber Genesis gas grill but I decided to see how my new Traeger Timberline smoker did on a reverse sear. Continue reading Traeger Reverse Sear Steak
Steaks don’t taste right if they are not seared in my opinion. This raises a problem if you want to put your steak in a smoker and get a smoky taste on it. You have to cook at low temperature for a longer period to get the smoke taste on the meat and that doesn’t sear it. Continue reading Sear & Smoke Steak
Watch what you ask for you may get it. I made this appetizer and it was delicious! However, I could not think of a name. I am a proud member of Smoking Meat Forums, a wonderful resource for information and ideas on smoking. I asked the kind members of the forum for help in naming the appetizer. A mini-poll took place and the name Disco Balls was chosen. You see, my handle on the forums is Disco. So despite the interesting name, welcome to a great appetizer, Disco Balls.

Here was the situation. It was an unseasonably hot spring day here in the mountains. It seemed perfect to cook a steak. She Who Must Be Obeyed agreed if I did the potatoes and cooked the steak to medium. Sigh, she must be obeyed. I fired up the Weber Genesis grill and went to work.

Sometimes you deserve the best. That first happened for me when I met She Who Must Be Obeyed. This time, I had two nice beef tenderloin steaks. We deserved them!
When you have great beef, you don’t need to do a lot to make a great meal. I just seasoned the steak with Louisiana Grills Mesquite Rub N’ Grill and cooked it on the Louisiana Grills Pellet Smoker. Continue reading Grilled Fillet Steak
For New Year’s Eve, She Who Must Be Obeyed got me one of my favourite cuts of beef, Tri Tip. I took the opportunity to try a feature on my Louisiana Grills Pellet Smoker. It has a panel you can slide back that opens a grate that is directly over the firebox. This should allow me to get a great char on the steaks. Continue reading New Year Steak
Steak! With the cost of beef it is becoming a rarer and rarer item on our table. Add to that the fact it isn’t She Who Must Be Obeyed’s favourite meat and I find it a real treat when we pick up a piece of steak. So, I fired up the Louisiana Grills Pellet Smoker and tried one of the seasonings I got from them, Smokey Sweet Spicy Hot Seasonings. Continue reading Smokey Spicy Sweet Hot Steak
