Did reverse sear, with steaks off to the side of the coals but still starting basting with butter ever single time I turned. Got them to about 120 F and put them directly over the coals to finish them off. Nice amount of char and grill marks. Pulled them at 130F.

    OMG! After the couple of weeks I've had, this was just what the Dr ordered! Now if the Dogs will just finish knocking off NTSU all will be right with the world.
    That sounds great. But just to be absolutely clear, when you said, "directly over the coals," did you mean still up on the grate or down on the coals (caveman style)?

    On the grate. Only an 1 1/2" 2" above the charcoal. Once you're directly over the coals, you have to mind them closely and turn very regularly & continuing to baste. Char is once thing....incineration is another. And it doesn't take long to finish.

    I use one of my Thermapens to be sure of the internal temperature. No guessing on how done you are. And if you're unsure what temperature is what degree of done-ness there's always the handy-dandy:

    Don't grill at home without it!

    Any of y'all ever built your own smoker/ BBQ pit? I've been looking around online at DIY plans for old-school brick and cinder block pits for awhile, and will probably put one together early next year. They don't look hard to build, just wondering if anyone had ever built one and had tips on anything I need to make sure I consider when designing/building/using it.

    I assume this is already built, but Iíve looked at Big Poppa Ugly Drum Smoker kits. Itís everything you need to turn a food grade or unlined 55-gallon drum into a quality smoker. I think the kit is around $140. Drums can be anywhere from $10-$50.

    Whether you watch the Super Bowl or not this weekend, it does kind of present a reason to do some cooking...if you need a reason.

    I'm thinking about smoking a couple of bacon wrapped pork tenderloin stuffed with jalapeno poppers. Though I might use Anaheim peppers since they are milder and Mrs TD likes them better. Maybe sauteed spinach & mushrooms for a side dish.

    If not the Super Bowl we might watch some college basketball or NHL hockey game.

    Brookshires here in Shreveport has baby back ribs for $1.77/pound. I think that may be what's on our menu.
