Here at home I reverse sear everything from super thick ribeye to santa maria tri-tip...

Love it... the meat is typically red all the way through...

This is not the best example, but it was good none the less... a santa maria tri-tip...

I like a steak cooked, briefly, over red hot coals. Roughly 2 minutes each side.

Then lay 3 or 4 asparagus stalks on the steak and layer thin slices of blue vein cheese over the asparagus. Allow the cheese to melt and serve.

That is somewhere near manna from heaven.

How does one reverse seer while camping? I never heard of this method before this thread.
From what I found on Google is that you put the steak into a 275 degree F for 45-60 minutes. Who has an oven like that available in a camping trailer?

Ok, the Weber finish cooks it, but still how does one do the oven thing while out with the camper? :thinking:

Here's some more information on reverse searing...

But ya, we don't have the equipment to put a steak in an oven or a smoker while camping... So does any one have a good idea? I've never tried holding the temp in a Weber down to 250-275. Is that do-able?

Mike, on a regular Weber Kettle grill you can hold the low temps by how you load the charcoal. This works excellent when smoking on a Weber. Just arrange the coals in a rope like fashion, or a horseshoe . All you want to do is ring the outside of the lower rack with about 3-4 coals piled all the way around ,but leave about a 6" gap. Then just light the one end. The coals will burn, following the charcoal rope. This will last about 3-4 hours without adding any charcoal. Temps will be about 225-250 degrees. If you want more heat, just make the rope slightly deeper. A remote thermometer would make it easy to maintain temps you want.

I have not done this on a smokey Joe. It may be to small.

Thanks Mike.
This link told me a lot about grilling meats which I did not know about. I am anxious to try it. Ordering my thermometer now.

I tried to reverse sear a steak tonight. I brought a thick rib eye up to 135 degrees F in my regular oven and then put it on my small BBQ grill for several minutes and I must admit, it was one of the best steaks I have cooked in a long time. And this was even thought I might have grilled it a little too long.

Looks yummy Bob.

Never tried it but I imagine you could use a Dutch oven while camping to bring to temp (place steaks on a trivet) and then finish off on a grill. Or if their is electricity at the campsite I guess you could try sous vide.

The afternoon that we're going to have steak for supper, I take it out, pat it dry, coat with olive oil, Montréal steak spice and a quick splash of tabasco. Throw it into a ziplock back and put it back in the cooler for a couple hours. At suppertime, get a pan full of sliced onions and mushrooms, lotsa butter, garlic and seasoning salt. When that's almost ready, propane grill on high and throw on the steaks for 3-4 minutes each side. Remove from the heat onto a plate, throw all the onions and mushrooms on top and wrap with foil for 5-10 minutes. Delicious, juicy steak with all the toppings dripping the garlic-ey buttery flavors over the steak while it rests. It's pretty amazing :thumbsup:

All depends on the mood I'm in. Can be direct on the coals caveman style. Sow smoked and reverse seared over high high. Cast Iron seared in butter So many ways! Some of it depends on the cut too. Tri tip and London broil I'll tend to differently than a rib-eye or a t-bone.

My Weber Smokey Joe goes everywhere with me. So quite often this is what we have.

Those methods all sound delicious, and I do like a good steak; but here is another method I like, too.

My mom always used to make BBQ spare ribs using Chinese red pork seasoning, but i found that to be a lot of prep work cutting up the ribs, they can be messy to eat, and aren't the healthiest thing.

So I substitute steak loin tips. They are about the same size and shape as ribs, take the marinade well, you can eat them with a knife and fork, there is very little fat and no gristle.

Do the marinade ahead and pack it all in a zip bag; pat dry and allow to warm some before grilling.
