Cleaning Cast Iron Griddles & Skillets

Smashing a burger

Sometimes I like to use a cast iron griddle or skillet in my Weber gas grill. I use a griddle to make smashed burgers or to do a reverse sear on a steak.  I’ve used a CI skillet on the grill to fry extra-thick bacon and pork belly to avoid setting off the smoke detector in the house! Both are great tools that you should try sometime on your gas grill.

Review: Weber 6489 Corn Picks

It’s been a couple of years since I bought this set of Weber 6489 Corn Picks, aka corn holders. I thought I’d review them but never got around to cracking open the package until last week. It just wasn’t a priority for me. I mean, seriously, how much can you really say about corn picks? Continue reading Review: Weber 6489 Corn Picks

USDA Prime Ribeye Cap Steaks From Costco

Seared USDA Prime ribeye cap steaks from Costco

Introduction

In a post last week, I encouraged you to try grilling a USDA Prime tri-tip roast. As long as I’m on a Prime meat kick, I’d like to suggest that you try the harder to find but oh so delicious USDA Prime ribeye cap steak, also available from time to time and in limited quantities at Costco.

I last grilled ribeye cap steaks in February 2016 and enjoyed them very much. In January 2018, I found ribeye cap steaks at Costco that were rolled, tied, and sliced into pinwheel steaks—a better presentation and easier to cook, I think. Continue reading USDA Prime Ribeye Cap Steaks From Costco
