Old Grandad Ribeys

Well I don't fire up Old Grandad too often, but you guys can appreciate it's fine cooking abilities. I'm 51 and it was built by my Grandad before I was born. Passed on to me and lovingly repaired to use when I felt him looking down, like today.

He was a little before his time I think as there are grills out there that will do the same thing, they just came along a little late!

Here are a few pics;






Fire box is adjustable from 24" below to right under the grid

Even came with a high tech temp control device




No lighter fluid has ever touched this rig!!!!!





Tonight it is ribeyes marinated over night in eye-talian dressing and then topped with a little greek seasoning;




Gonna sear these babies real good then lower the fire pan to the bottom and let them cook until they are 135 internal temp!






I guess someday I'll figure out this backwards posting thing

Nice looking steak! Don't know if I'd risk soaking a rib eye in Italian dressing though.

I figured you were ribeyeing me. Just didn't want to start an extremely long debate on the merits of marinating when all I wanted was to EAT!!!!

From the subject, I thought sure this thread would have something to do with this.

No need to debate. Everybody does as they please around here. My personal choice is just plain old salt, pepper, garlic powder and some onion powder. That steak has plenty of fat in it for flavor!
