i used the alton brown method of cooking a steak and it turned out perfectly. probably the best steak i ever cooked.  it involved high heat, a cast iron skillet, and an oven.

Same here.  Damn fine steak.

I've also used his Brine for thanksgiving turkey.  Everyone raved about it.

AB is the best by far.

I love watching Diners Drive-ins and Dives by Guy does get on my nerves.

I did his brine and all I can say is big deal. I can make a Turkey perfect every time without doing that again.

As far as making a great steak. I challenge anyone on the planet to make one better then I can. I'm serious.

About the Brine, I found that the method did not really add much flavor but the meat was much juicier than normal and the white meat stayed juicy in the fridge for the next few days - well as long as it lasted.  Very good IMO.

I think that's the point of brining anyway - just to enhance the natural flavor and make the turkey juicier, not necessarily add flavor.

I feel by placing a thermometer in the breast in the right spot and cooking to 165 degrees its perfect and totally juicy.  
I also stuff lots of herbed butter under the skin, and on top for that matter. Then I start the cooking at 450 for the first half hour then lower to 325.
If its not as good, I can't tell any difference. Juicy is juicy to me, and its way easier then his ridiculous brine. Way too much effort when I can do just fine without it.
I'm not knocking you though. If you enjoy doing it, go for it. trink39.gif

Sue why not.

Use a great steak like a rib eye.
Make sure you preheat your grill good and hot!
Marinate your steak 12 to 24 hours.
Take steak out of fridge and let it sit till its at room temperature.
Dry off steak before grilling. You don't want it wet.
Slap that sucker on diagonally across that grill and close the lid.
in 3 or 4 minutes turn it to the other angle diagonally to get nice cross grill marks, and close lid.
3 or 4 minutes later open lid and flip that sucker. Leave the heat high for 3 minutes then lower. Do the same diagonal thing as you did on the other side.
If you do this as I have told you, you will make kick ass steaks.
A nice ribeye will be perfection in 12 to 14 minutes depending on your grill.

I like Ina Garten.  Though I heard she refused some make-a-wish kid and then tried to cover it up (could be untrue).  She still makes great food.

I like Ina as well.  I read about that - I'm thinking things got blown out of proportion...

I like Giada too, although I also hate her because she's beautiful, thin with boobs, and can apparently eat tons of food, do a little yoga, and look like a model.  

My favorite guy is definitely Alton Brown.

Yeah, Tick knows his way around the kitchen. He has made numerous food threads in Random Samples prior to food being added to this section.

I think my favorite is a Delmonico steak. Other faves are skirt and flank.

Funny how I love her for the same reasons you hate her? laugh.gif

Seriously though. I'd be willing to bet she works out like mad to keep her form.

If you have a nice thick steak, it would be medium.... I usually cook mine less than that, I like mine between med-rare and med....

My steak of choice is a rib eye or a porterhouse. Buy more tenderloin than anything because the kids waste too much of the other 2 because it "had too much fat"

What's your marinade? I love heavy garlic, olive oil and a little lime juice to tenderize the meat. Yup - pat dry, and sprinkle on KOSHER salt and pepper and let sit on the counter 1/2 hour before starting the grill. When the coals are ready, the steak will be at a perfect temp for the grill.

When I make steak sandwiches, I like marinating it in creamy garlic dressing and sprinkling on Lawry's seasoned salt

And nothing beats a rib-eye or porterhouse.

Have you ever made steak fajitas on the grill? That marinade with a little heat would make good fajitas.

I use the fajita rub found in Raichelens on both the meat and onions and peppers. i grill the veggies on a grate.

typically i cook beef with mesquite wood chunks although hickory, oak and apple do just fine too IMO.
