How to Reverse Sear a Ribeye Steak | White Thunder BBQ

I guess this was cooked to a medium, but this was by far one of the best steaks I have made.  I think next time I will pull it at 120 and then do the sear.  It was still super tender and juicy....if someone served me a steak like this I would not turn it down!  I really hope you give this recipe a try!

Heavily season both of the sides of the steak with kosher salt, fresh cracked pepper and chili powder. 

I am cooking this in my Mini WSM.  Preheat the grill to 220F, before placing the steak on.  Insert a temperature probe to monitor the internal temperature.  Pull the steak when it reaches an internal temperature of 125F / 51C.

Stoke the fire to and place a cast iron pan directly over the coals.  Add some canola oil to the pan and allow the oil to start smoking.  At this point place the steak in the pan and add 1 T of butter.  Add some fresh thyme and garlic and sear each side of the steak for 45 seconds.

Let rest for about 10 minutes and enjoy!

What you will need:

Kosher salt
Fresh cracked pepper
Chili powder
Canola oil

Chunk of maple wood

Chuck Roast Burnt Ends | White Thunder BBQ

Mix the ground pepper, garlic powder and kosher salt in a small bowl. Slice the meat and heavily apply the rub. While the beef is coming up to room temperature, light the fire in the smoker.

Add the apple, maple and hickory wood to the charcoal. Smoke the meat for around 6 hours at 250 F. When internal temperature reaches 170 F, pull the meat off the grill. Let it rest for 10 minutes.
 Cut the meat in 1 inch cubes. In a bowl or dish, add 1/2 C Yellow Gold BBQ Sauce, and 1/2 C of your favorite BBQ sauce. Mix well, until all of the meat is covered in both sauces. Cover the dish and put it back on the grill until the meat is very tender ~205 internal, maybe higher.  Chuck is a very stubborn cut of meat.

1 t Freshly Ground Pepper
2 t Garlic Powder
1 t Kosher Salt
Apple, Maple and hickory wood.
