Cook Steaks Like Billy

Cook Steaks Like Billy.

Ingredients:

 

4       Steaks (Billy likes prime or choice plus filet mignon)

3       tablespoons of unsalted butter

1       Old No. 3 Rub 

 

Best to have the right tools like Billy Twang Lump Mesquite Charcoal, Igniter Fuel, Elvis Shaker, and Turner Spatula.  Get cookin’ and build a big ol’ smokin’ hot fire; shoot for about 400 degrees.

 

Meanwhile back at the kitchen, melt some unsalted butter.  Fetch the steaks from the refrigerator and pour on the melted butter; this is the slather, helps the Old No. 3 Rub stick.  Apply the Old No. 3 Rub using Billy’s Elvis Shaker – the coverage is solid not thick.

 

The fire is red and ashy – right?  Good idea to add a few wood chunks for more smoke.  Place the steaks over indirect heat for a good infusion of smoke; about ten minutes in this position, flip once.

 

Ready for searin’, move the steaks directly over the hot coals.  This is time for vigilance.  Don’t focus too much on the grilling time, because every fire is different, instead, focus on the texture of the steaks for doneness: “Bouncy and rubbery means rare and more firm means more cooked”. Flip often for critical feedback; flipping helps cook steaks evenly too. Billy Twang only closes the lid of the Grand Prize Pit to take an occasional sip of beverage.

 

Remove the steaks from the pit a little under cooked relative to your likin’, because the steaks continue cookin’ internally.  A resting period of a few minutes allows the steaks juices to return to the center of the cut.

 

Let the feastin’ begin.
