Its on again tonight and I agree, they look over cooked. and then they were talking about the grills being too hot when they hit the 350 degree mark. They also seem to be a bit toooo carried way with rubs and marinades, but what do I know..I just know what I like

If I remember correctly.... Steaks for the contest MUST to be cooked to Medium.

Given that... What kind of steak contest could it be?

I'm thinking more like Dumb Asses. What do you expect though, they were using Kingsford. [smilie=a_doh.gif]
It's likely Kingsford is the biggest or maybe even only sponsor, so they might not even have a choice there.

I dunno...maby its just me, but I loves my beef flavor..A little s and p and garlic is all I ever put on a steak; or even my briskets for that matter. The only thing that may vary is a dip in some butter (heart healthy) if Im having surf and turf. I have used some differant pepper mixes but never a rub or sauce.

I'm with you John, I'll experiment with different rubs and steak sauces on lesser cuts of beef, but on "good" steaks, it's the K.I.S.S. system.

I'm with you fellers

if its good beef I dont want to mask it, if its not then I will mess around with flavors...I think that was driven into me growing up when we raised cattle

Scotty I think your quote from a while back of "Walking a cow through a warm kitchen" just about sums up steak doneness
