    Default Had some of Bryan (and my's) sous vide beef tenderloin

    Pretty good, but as Bryan said not as exceptional as he or I were
    hoping for. Bryan tried to get a little grill crusting on 'em
    immediately before serving, but as I discussed with him the one
    liability of a Weber kettle is the inability to vary the fire/grill
    spacing, so while flavorful thanks to hickory wood, not crusty.

    Still, while it did not come up to expectations, it was darned good.
    Especially considering it was $5.99 beef tenderloin! Mmmmm, I could
    eat a bunch of that! And did, even though I was not very hungry at the
    moment.Much like medium rare wall-to-wall beef! Not a bad thing at
    all!

    But the method worked! At least in my opinion.

    I think if you're going to sear after low temp "sous vide" cooking you have
    to do it on a very hot saute pan. You could do it over charcoal if the
    charcoal was less than 1" from the grate surface. We use a charcoal basket
    under the surface of the Weber grill grate that does this. Searing on a
    saute pan is probably the way to go.

    Wouldn't that be the way it's done in a restaurant?

    Try a cast-iron skillet, filmed with smoking-hot oil. I do more
    pan-seared steaks than grilled.

    When I was doing steaks and I had a Weber, that was the only way to
    go. Hubby took over cooking steaks after my Weber died and I had to
    work late, so pan fried steaks (no oil, they were studded with butter)
    were the norm. Now that I'm not working, we have a gas grill
    (outdoors) that I won't use and hubby has cut down on saturated fats,
    so I use an indoor grill, but wish I still had charcoal to grill with.

    That's funny. Somebody engaging Kent in a conversation regarding
    how to sear beef.

    Saute Pan. Heh.

    Searing beef in a sauté pan? The ex-teacher vs. the bowel doctor!

    Some months ago, a store around here was practically giving away
    charcoal. I bought a lot of it.

    I also have a source for hickory, cherry, peach, pear, and eventually
    apple. You should buy yourself a new Weber. I had some great, very
    lean sirloins last week. Saturated fats are not a good reason to give
    up grilling.

    I will never ever grill on an outdoor grill that isn't a charcoal one.

    Lucky you! If I got them, I'd pay a premium... but back in the day -
    when I lived in Michigan when we had real wood bbqs and coals came
    after burning a wood fire, I couldn't tell the difference between
    hardwoods. Someone would say, this is apple, this is cherry, this is
    maple... but there was no flavor difference in my opinion.

    >

    I also have to go down a full level of stairs to grill (not that I
    didn't do that very thing for years & years). Hm. Maybe I'll toss
    out some hints to my kids about a Weber for xmas. I wouldn't turn it
    down if someone gave me one.

    We don't eat red meat like we used to and it's because of saturated
    fats. Hubby doesn't want any more stents.

    Except nobody in their right mind grills or smokes with Kingsford
    briquettes.

    It's ironic how you put down others people's food because they
    contain so many nasty ingredients, yet you have no problem
    subjecting your food to burning mineral char, anthracite coal,
    limestone, borax, and sodium nitrate. Yum.

    Kinda two-faced there, aren't you?

    Yew Nork!!!

    How stupid is it that they're still called the New York Giants, playing for
    the past 20+ years in New Jersey?!?

    We don't have that kind of sense of humor here in Pennsylvania.

    What a Yew Nork embarrassment!!!

    Your right, that's why I have seven different cast iron skillets (the
    youngest was born 1919). Every cook should have atleast one.

    Yes but the indoor electrics are so easy to use and clean up, I'd
    never go back to gas. I miss charcoal as well, it's hard to clean up
    on a condo balcony, so the only option was the indoor grill.

    Agreed. Horrible stuff. I only bought it once.
    Never again. It leaves a horrible aftertaste.
    I tried several brands, and settled on Safeway
    store brand for many years. I now use Trader
    Joe's store brand.

    Also, don't buy self-starting briquets. Use
    a starter or use starter fluid. Don't buy
    briquettes with mesquite sawdust in them.
    Buy mesquite chips or chunks if that's what
    you want, and add them to a bed of plain
    charcoal briquettes at the appopriate time.

    For a long time, I used mesquite lump charcoal.
    I've decided that stuff is more trouble than
    it's worth. Its only advantage is it burns
    hotter. It adds no discernable mesquite flavor,
    and about 1/3 to 1/2 of the bag is unusable
    because the particles are too small.

    My favorite one was the Safeway brand with bits of mesquite in it.
