    Do you have some sort of religious prohibition against tin foil?

      Contrary to its name, dirty steak isn't really dirty at all. Very, very little ash actually adheres to the meet. The extreme high heat and direct contact with the coals sears the meat almost instantly. A very fast cooking method for steaks and by far the best at sealing in the juices. My first attempt resulted in 4 well done ribeyes when I was shooting for med-rare. Still tasty, but a bit embarrassing since we had 2 dinner guests.

      Mark, I would invest in a set of extra long tongs, steak afficionados (not me, see above mistake) will tell you it is a cardinal sin to ever puncture the surface of meat...it lets out the juices, defeating the purpose of the sear.

        No fair being sensible when I'm trying (unsuccessfully) to be funny!

          RT,, I agree, (i've Heard that rule) At the time i started necessiity was the mother of invention. A long handled tongs would be great, But its hard to find something that long and still hold pressure to keep the meat in.. Maybe you think like a fireplace log grabber thing...??

            Mark, try pulling your coals towards the entry and using the long BBQ tongs. Works for me......I also have a pair of elbow length welders gloves which are very helpful.

                    That's a darn good looking piece of meat. I do agree with the others...keep a pair of thongs around...i mean tongs
                    definitely an interesting way of cooking...i'll have to give it try.
                    Great pizza, a cold beer,a great cigar and great friends...my idea of a great time

                      I've been saying for ages that I'm going to try this...
                      I just drooled a little bit looking at those pics..

                        Re: ***Tonight's Dinner Dirty Steak***

                        i was very reluctant to try this the first time, and when I have company they want to know if im kidding,, I would never put another steak on the grill again.. I use london broil which is one of the cheaper cuts, but it always comes out tender and delicious.. Just make sure whatever steak you put on that it is evenly thick,, if its fatter on one end it doesnt cook evenly,, just season/rub whatever you would normally do...

                        I also sprinkle coffee grounds (unused) on vanilla Ice cream... they usually think im nuts for that too,, Until they try it....

                        Cheers

                          I only ever use salt & fresh black pepper on steak.

                          The coffee grounds sounds interesting as well -
                          I love chocolate coated coffee beans, so I'll have to give that a go as well!!!

                            I just caught up with this thread. This is just excellent -- but be careful with hair on the back of your hand! :-)
