Welcome from just outside Chicago, IL! Fire it up and grill something!
I swear, when I score a great deal on a 26" I'll stop buying grills... So often.

Here it is. Reverse seared ribeye. Still not sure whether to get the slow n sear or just make due. I have a gasser 1993 Weber genesis 2000 that I refinished. Replaced the grates with GrillGrates, itís a beast now. Am I missing something? Seems way easier to reverse sear using the performer charcoal to get the steaks to 110-115, I can heat up the Genesis 2000 in the meantime and have it seared without having to reset the performer charcoal etc.

I tried to do the whole reverse sear cold grate thing tonight 100% on the performer and it was hectic to say the least. Grates didnít spin, I dropped the grates trying to pick them up with tongs. My kids are hanging at my legs asking WTF are you doing daddy. [emoji23]. ďTrying not to kill us or burn the dang house downĒ!

Maybe Iím a mainstream noob but I like the sear marks that the GrillGrates give. There is enough radiant heat in the valleys thatís the whole steak has color, just not as consistent as Iíve seen on ABCís YouTube vids.

I would eat that steak in a second, my first few reverse sear's weren't the best, you will perfect it I'm sure

I just did a pretty close variation of the adrenaline barbecue company meatloaf video from YouTube. I did meatballs instead of meatloaf. Used onion powder garlic powder instead of those exact ingredients as I didnít have them handy. I have to tell you Iím really getting the hang of this kettle. Using Royal Oak lump this time With cherry wood chips. I think I like that better than briquettes.

Thatís a funny story about the cold grate technique. I agree with you. I donít mind grill marks and the entire steak still gets seared. Iíve never bothered with trying the cold grate because it never made sense to me but Iíve been wrong before too. Your steak looks great! 

Ive tried a few different techniques and they all work. Sous vide, sear first, sear last, all direct, smoked, caveman, Santa Maria-ish.

They are all slightly different but I loved them all and itís fun to experiment.

I agree, the fun part is the change up of cooks, challenging your skills and then eating a grate steak. What's not to love about that

Welcome from Highland Park, IL (north of Chicago)! Love the diving right in - that's the only way to do it.
