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
Mark

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! :-)

hey Mark -
how long per side?

I have some 1.5" thick strips in the freezer..
I do these guys direct the grill (weber performer) for 3-4mins a side, and they come out medium well.

I'm guessing about 90 seconds a side with about a 5mins rest?
(almost the same as a good pizza )

When you turn them, do you put it on a fresh set of coals? or back on the same spot?

Mitch.

So, is it just a matter of placing the (thick) steak directly on the coals??

Is there any cleaning involved afterwards to remove ash?

I usually pull the coals to the front, (like RT said) I give them a few knocks to knock the major ash off, Then just drop it on.... I also try to use any kind of fruitwood I may have, Currently my neighbors cherry tree I cut down for her,, seems to taste better then oak or maple......

every once in a while a hot coal will stick,,, I just knock it off,, But after I just let it sit a few minutes, slice and serve.. Never had to wipe or clean anything off... Its kinda strange but its true

it usually takes 2-3 mins per side for a 2 inch london broil.. I go by firmness.. I prefer it pink inside as long as its warm...

This weekend I have dirty pork chops planned,,, should be good

Cheers
