One note of caution about using real wood; seriously. The fire is much hotter than gas or charcoal and it will ignite the paint on the outside of the BBQ thus create a raging fireball. If you have a propane stove you will ruin the burner so it must be removed first. Also, remove the tank since embers will fall through and land on the bottle and rubber hoses.

I use a mixture of wood and charcoal. Wood for heat and flavor, and the charcoal for an even heat. The fire is really hot and difficult to manage so every BBQ is a real adventure.

You guys haven't made a fire pit? Ivan...

I think the RV should make a pitstop at Ivan & Tsu's on the way to Tom's house. We can load up on great steak & frozen broccoli, pick up Integral (aka Santa) and head back east. :biggrin:

That would be illegal during he summer months. As long as its in a BBQ, its just a BBQ, and not an open fire. :biggrin:

The true steak eater wont put any steak sauce or other condiments on his/her steak! I'll have a 24 oz. T-bone medium with a baked potato!

Get rid of the lemon pepper and make it rare. :approve:
Rare, OK. But if you're comin' to the farm, that's they way I spice 'em. They all get spiced the same all the way down the line. Take it or leave it. :surprised :rofl: :rofl: I don't run a cook-to-order establishment. And I've NEVER had a complaint about it yet. :wink: :biggrin: Taste it first - then decide. :wink:

The right way to prepare a steak is called "blue" in France.
On the american standard, it certainly is equivalent to "alive" :tongue2:
"Rare american" seems "well done" to me :tongue:

I remember when I was in France and my aunt was cooking steaks. She threw them into the pan, immediately flipped them over and served them. There were parts of the outside of the steak that hadn't touched the pan, so were still raw. I at least want the entire outside seared, but red on the inside.

Tsu, you're seasoning sounds perfect!!!! :approve:

I cannot understand people that will put A1 sauce on a steak!!! :surprised :yuck: There is NO WAY you can taste the meat if you use that stuff. :surprised :yuck: A1 sauce can remove paint!!! It's all you can taste. That stuff is supposed to be used to cover the taste of tainted meet, just like the Romans use of Garum (fermented fish sauce) on "everything" they cooked to cover up the rotting smell and taste. :bugeye:

Rare, no question. I'd eat the thing raw if it was still fresh. It's always been a dream of mine to eat part of a live cow.

LOL!

I'll already be in NY right after Christmas, so bring some steaks along in the RV and I'll meet ya at Tom's! :biggrin: Or else I can meet you all in Atlantic City, since I'll be staying the rest of the time with my sister who lives only about 20 or 30 min from there!
