I am going to try to smoke some steaks tomorrow for lunch. This will be a first for me, using smoke the whole way through.

This https://heygrillhey.com/smoked-steak/ makes me think it is possible. One of our group likes it medium rare, and the rest medium or more. So it should be interesting.

With the smoke setting holding at 225, we'll have a good time, watching the thermometer probes. I'll report back with how it goes.

I still have yet do smoke steaks, but something I want to try. How did it come out? Photos?

There were very good.

New York Strip steaks. We saw a recipe on heygrillhey.com . One of our party likes medium rare, three like medium or more. We used smoke for 1 hour for the medium ones, and about 45 minutes for the medium rare. I was aiming for 125F and 140F. I think we got to 120F and 130F, but we needed to leave to get to a party. They were red, due to the smoke, so we seared them in a cast iron skillet on a grill which has a gas side burner. The skillet was between 450F and 500F, according to the Fluke handheld thermometer. We wrapped them in foil and towels, and even though we didn't get to eat them until over an hour later, they were still warm and very good. We will be using this as a sure-fire fallback. It wasn't quite as edge-to-edge as sous vide, but close. I think we'll go with 1 hour, 15 minutes for the medium, and stick with 45 minutes for medium rare the next time.

Pardon the one image, it was taken outdoors underneath a red cloth umbrella. The plate they are on is white.
