2.37lb Ribeye and Cold Smoked Salmon on the Charcoal Go-AnyWhere
« on: November 13, 2017, 08:09:40 AM »
Hey guys, I used the the CGA grill to reverse sear a 2.37lb rib-eye and cold smoke salmon. This little grill is great for small cooks. Iím still trying to find the sweet spot on temps, besides that, its fun cooking on this grill.

Getting the grill ready for reverse sear. I used Royal Oak and monitored grill and meat temps using the InkBird thermometer.


Internal temp was 130 degrees. Set it aside, added more coals to turn up the heat.


Seared both sides for about a 2 minutes, flipping every minute.


Once seared, I put the steak to the side and let it rest for a bit, then pulled it off to let it rest on the cutting board for 10 minutes.


The outside edges were well-done (for the kidoís) and my wife and I got med in towards the middle.



As for the salmon, I cured with salt and brown sugar over night, rinsed, patted dry, and let it sit in the fridge for about 2-3 hours. Cold Smoked it for 8hrs using apple pellets. I tried to keep the temps between 68-86 degrees, but those little pellets generated so much heat that the grill got up to about 115 degrees. It tapered down once the outside temp was in the low 50ís. Besides that, the results were great. Its vacuumed sealed and resting in the fridge now. My wife and I sampled it last night, and its the best one Iíve done so far.
