I experimented with some chicken wings and decided to do a dirty steak as well as I've never done this before but have read about it here and on other food sites. The steak came out great!

The wings and steak look great! I've seen the technique of tossing a steak right on the coals but I've never been bold enough to try it. You've got quite a versatile cooking apparatus there!

Dang, George! You're making me hungry! Nice to see you've wasted no time making excellent dishes in your oven. Ever think about making a classic Greek salad pizza with onions, tomatoes, bell peppers, feta and oregano?

Try it. The very worst that can happen is you are out $5 worth of steak.

George. Great pictures. You are a virtuoso with a camera.

Thanks again for the thoughts and comments.

I did not do much this weekend except add slightly more shoulder bulk to the shape of the oven with perlcrete and also made a temporary, quick and crude uninsulated oven door using what I found in my kitchen which fit perfectly with very little fabrication.

That steak looks great. So is it gritty? what do you do to it after you pull it out of the fire?

Ash isn't gritty, and it is sterile. It actually has no flavor generally, it is just an appearance thing. Dredge it through a lemon pepper butter sauce and it disappears.

Yeah, the steaks come out surprising clean and any ash or embers stuck on the meat brush right off. I did a couple of more dirty steaks over the weekend, including a chunk of tri-tip and they all came out good. They were fun and somewhat entertaining for family and guests who've never seen this done before.
But I do miss my grill marks so I'll probably use a cast iron grate elevated over a couple of bricks next time.

Dirty deer steak is a staple around here on the lease. I usually put some horseradish in the LPB dredge too.

As I was reading this,, I was thinking that I should thaw out some venison and cook it on the coals....You read my mind. I'm thinking I will do that very soon.
