So... We'd bought four of those rib steaks pictured in the previous thread; and last night we made the second pair.
The fire was a mix of oak logs and some big lumps of mesquite charcoal (lumps too big for the smoker); and the charcoal was added before the oak was anywhere near coal so they'd get ready together, with the vents properly adjusted, etc., etc.
Yes, I'm still getting used to the new pit. But it occurs to me that grilling is one of those deceptively bottomless exercises. There's always something new to learn; and the more you learn and better understand, the clearer your realization that you don't know very much at all. Using logs -- and otherwise getting closer to nature -- doesn't change that so much as throw a spotlight.
What were we talking about?
