After reading about some of you smoking your steaks before you grill them, I think I'll give it a try. My plan is to throw a nice thick ribeye in the smoker for about a half hour at 200 or so. Then finish it off on the grill. I like my steaks rare, so I'm a little unsure of how rare it will be.

Any suggestions before I ruin a good hunk of meat?

I smoke Ribeyes often but do so at a higher temp...325 or so. This seems to give it enough crust that I don't feel the need to grill them to obtain it.

I probe it til it reaches 110. Nice thick ribeye take me more like 45min at 200. Probe tells me when its ready. Then throw it on a high heat grill until short of med rare to handle carry-over. Does not take long on the grill and plenty of char. Do the mushrooms and onions while its going.

I grill mine over charcoal with some wood chunks/chips thrown on for flavor. I sear first and then move them away from teh fire to smoke some

Usually, I HH grill my steaks. . . But, every once in a while, I also enjoy giving 'em a bit of extra smoke up front. . . Doesn't take long - maybe 20 minutes, then I jack up heat in the firebox - get the grates real hot then finish cooking them do my desired doneness (usually med or med-rare in my house). Have fun and take pics!

sorry, no pics this time.

It turned out pretty good. Smoked it for about 45 min at 200 then a quick sear on the gasser. I doubt I will do it like this all the time, but it was a nice change and I'll do it again.
