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.

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...??

Arch,,,
I'll wrap some dirty steak in Aluminum foil and send it to you (snicker)

Cheers
Mark

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.
