Hey guys, Mike Hedrick Pit Pirate BBQ. We are grilling like a villain today. We got the hamburgers and hot dogs finished up and now its time for steaks. Steaks are the big boy meat, so you got to be ready for that. There’s a lot of different cuts that you can get of steaks, there’s porterhouses and T-bones and rib-eyes and all kind of different cuts. I say whatever cut that you get, get the thickest one that you can afford because there’s going to be where the flavors at. Also if you can you want to see if you can get a lot of marbling. The marbling is just going to be a fat intermixed in between the meat. I like a keeping, you want to trim it down, if you’ve got extra fats on the side you may trim it down and you see I didn’t trim it down, and I cut myself, so I got a Band-Aid on there. This Band-Aid looks like a bacon. So, I am covered up for right now. I am going to do it real simple, little not even a marinade just a little bit of a glaze kind of a thing. Just going to put a little bit of sesame oil and see I got my rubber gloves on so that I can keep all that raw meat away from things. Just a little bit of sesame oil on there and then I like a good amount of fresh cracked pepper. I like a really good amount on there. And, I like a good amount of salt on there too. I think, if you salt on the beginning part, you salt less at the very end in that way people have you know good flavor but not too salty on there. We are going to finish these ones up. My grill over there I’ve got that grill grade on my Peoria Custom cooker down a little bit lower to get it as hot as possible. I am looking for a thousand degrees that is what I am looking for. So when I put these bad boys on there, they are going to sizzle. People are going to know that they are on there and they are going to be cooking up. These are over an inch thick and so they’re going to take a little bit cooking. But we will tell you about the times and temperatures after they get some grill marks on there and then that’s just going to be good folks.
