Degrees of Steak Done-ness! Medium rare for me!

    I start with a good cut of meat about 1 1/2" thick then cook it to medium rare, preferably via the reverse sear process. The last part can be rather smoky so I heat my cast iron skillet outside on the grill.

      I've been doing the reverse sear method, except on the grill instead of the oven. I just leave half my burners off, and cook the steak on that side until it's about 110-115 internal temp. Then I flip over to the other side of the grill and blast it for the char. Works every time.

      I made the mistake of charing the steak in the skillet inside... smoke alarms and crying children. Not ideal ;)

        I recently finished my new outdoor kitchen that includes a Primo XL ceramic grill/smoker. I plan to try the entire reverse sear process outside on that next time. That should also let me add a little smoke flavor to the steak.
