As I posted before, I bought a craycort CI insert for the Weber. Tonight I bought a couple ribeyes (gulp, 17 bucks a pound!), some potatoes and corn. Decided to give it a run. I have to say, I'm sold on those things.

Mighty Pretty Steaks - Salt, pepper, oregano and a little crushed red pepper.

Prepping smashed potatoes. I took a queue from Francis Malman and started these in cold water, 2 tbs red wine vinegar, 2 tbs olive oil, 1 bay leaf and 6 peppercorns. Bring them to a boil, and when they are still hot, put them between two dish towels and slowly smash them into a disk. Put some olive oil on them and crisp them on a chappa or metal griddle

Of course, chimichurri is on the menu! I used to make this in a food processor, but now I chop it by hand. I like it much better that way. More rustic.

Here's everything on the grate

And on the plate

Great meal, I will be using these grates a lot.

That is a mighty fine looking meal :D :D I was intrigued with your first post about the CI grates and this post only adds to it. Are the grates easy to remove and put back in place? I'm thinking if you need to move some of the fuel around to adjust different zones for heat. Thanks for sharing.

Super Simple. They come in 4 pie shaped pieces that fit the frame. Any of the pieces can be replaced with an accessory - like a griddle or a beer can chicken holder.

Looking good. Did you buy them at Berkeley Bowl? I have bought a couple there at around that price range. Expensive,but well worth it.

Whole Foods. Expensive, but as you say - high quality stuff.

Yum-Yum!

Hy-Vee is having a "Steak Sale" and I went and checked it out.

They are not selling "Per Pound" but per steak price but not bad price

I got the NY Strip 8oz for $4.99 ea and the 12oz Rib-Eye was Butcher special $7.99 ea (the ad had it for $6.99 for 8oz but they sold the 12oz for $1 more as daily special)

I cooked the Rib-eye Sunday, my wife said was restaurant quality steak, thought was better than the Filet Mignon she had a a steak house a few weeks back.

Scorch, you should start a career as a carpenter 'cause you totally nailed it! :wink: That's a great meal and with the griddle insert you didn't have to get a pan dirty or fire up the stove.

HAHAHA.. +1 what SC said.. he just said it a lot better than I could..

My nephew has the CI grates and loves them, extra nice when you are going a two zone, you can pick up one "pie" piece and add fuel or wood.

Scorch - I was looking at the first pic and thought it was almost a shame to cook such good-looking steaks. But I'm glad you did, because the final pics made my lunch jealous. :twisted:
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.
