Lid on or off?

17 posts in this topic

Higher heat with lid off = better sear. Looks perfect to me...*slobber* I want to see pics of Del's soused up steaks....with or without his lid on. :grin:

Dels right though,  can't have lid off too long or they'll be over seared.  The bacon wrapped taters took a hit though with all the flame ups going on, but I still devoured them.:)

Seared on both sides quickly over high heat then moved over for indirect heat with lid on to finish.

As for potatoes  started early ofcourse,  oiled then salted with kosher salt direct heat till skin is crisp then turned over to crisp the other side then indirect heat the remaider of time much better than aluminum wraped. Poke with fork when some resistance to flesh start steaks

Great points waker,  I wish I took after shots Cuz the steaks were perfect. The taters on the weber I usually do this way, however on the big charcoal grill I oil them up and put in the warming rack, have not tried kosher salt,  but will next time.  Thanks for the ideas.

I just seared my HAMBURGERS to juicy perfection...then the lid went on to melt the swiss and sharp cheddar on 'em. 'Tater salad was waiting inside. 93* too hot on deck to be sitting out. :P

No worries here reb, you just keep posting away wherever you feel. That looks mouth watering  by the way.  Besides it doesn't matter where it's posted,  in the long run it ends up in the same place anyhow.  Well maybe.:lol:

    • Whole weekend cheats yes I agree even with ideal weight but one cheat meal a week I feel is ok If you are maintaining your calorie deficit for everything else. I feel like this is actually a good thing because when you are in a calorie deficit your bodies metabolism actually will slow down as your leptin levels drop to conserve energy. Having one cheat meal will temporarily raise your levels.  Now your cheat meal should be sensible still something with carbs and protein think burger or philly cheese steak sandwich pizza with sausage two or 3 slices not the whole pizza.   Fasted cardio before your cheat meal is also recommended         Anyway like others have said before being in a calorie deficit is the way to lose weight You need to find your calorie maintenance level then ideally cut 500 calories a day below that this will get you around 1lb of fat a week loss. Weigh yourself ONCE a week in the morning and track your progress give it 3 weeks before you evaluate and see if the calorie deficit you are at is right if you gained or stayed the same weight take more calorie off your daily intake. Being in a 500 calorie deficit is the most important part exercise comes second when adding exercise this is going to add to the daily calorie you burn so if without exercise you calorie deficit to lose weight was at 2500 calories with exercise it might be 2700 calories a day.   When cutting or anytime really clean foods are #1 in my book if it doesn't spoil in a week I don't eat it Think chicken, broccoli, green beans, peppers, sweet potatoes, green beans, turkey blah blah   You should also count your Macronutrients which are carbs protein and fat Ideally when cutting  10-30% carbs, 40-50% protein, 30-40% fat  
    • Have you had a chance to use your new Garmin Ref? Any feedback to share... 
    • Now that Dems are out of the majority I am seeing big sales on black guns. I would think you could get a better modern rifle than the bushmaster for a very reasonable price right now. 
    • "Because he lives in a high tension area" ... "high capacity"....    This one sounds like trouble just waiting to happen.
    • check for crack in the boot between the motor and the carb. get it started squirt some carb cleaner on the boot if the rpm goes up there is a leak.   
    • just spotted one. yay ! LOL 
    • Leech is absolutely on the right track.  Likely an easy remedy here.
    • Oh yes, he has been around guns since young. I suspect it is a combination of his thinking they are "cool" weapons and the fact that he lives and often has to work in a "high tension" area. I believe he is more interested in high cap than high quality and he can likely spend something reasonable. Since these things are not my bag I am unaware of pricing, features etc. just told him I could ask around for him. Have never had one in my hands! He may have been fired up because he saw some special at F.Farm on them. Thanks.
    • No battery in a 185 3 wheeler. Will have to pull it by hand.
    •   Does he own other guns?   What does he want it for? Self defense Hunting Just to own an AR because they are cool   How much money does he have to spend on one?
