Clifford Kindred: and yes his bbq, made up of sugar, is burnt...just not bad lol, i have two traegers. love them both..but...rib eye steak is to be done fast and hot....cold smoke it first if you want that oak smoke
Clifford Kindred: rib eye with bbq sauce...why!? Rib eye is prime rib cut up. one of the most flavorful cuts in beef.just needs, pepper, little seasonal, (garlic,onion, paprika,sugar, little cayenne, is basic seasonal) I cold smoke it for 25 min with oak, in the traeger, then use cast iron hot and fast.
stevesprinceofsteaks: Little of both. If you want to get good grille marks on Traeger the best way is to but cast iron grille in ahead of time. Let it get hot as Hell and put steaks on there. Still hard to get really good grille marks. They cook some awesome food but steak is a weakness. Get a Fast Eddy Pellet grille and get best of both. I have PG 500 and it rocks. Still break out Traeger for large groups or old time sake.
androidmaster123: But I agree he needs to clean it
androidmaster123: Btw there is no grease pan it runs off into a pail on the right side
jh31ms: Your grill is smoking like that because its dirty! You need to clean your grease tray and keep it covered with HD foil
Xoaxie: Rib-eye on a smoker, your a man I can respect.
Tkdude1: Yup, I also take a shopvac and suck all of the leftover ash in the bottom.
Tkdude1: Traegers are made over seas now. If you want a quality, USA made pellet smoker/grill, Buy a Smoking Brothers.
Those steaks look damn good though!
BushelAndABasket: Yes it was chard and not burnt. I guess you will have to take my word for it.
Brad K: Is that really "char," or is that just burnt bbq sauce?
iRaceBeetles: my mouth opened when u cut that steak!
jbond4ever: i agree , new foil after every cook, and put the grates in a gas bbq and burn off old food or put in oven and burn off on high temp. No off flavors when cleaned after each cook.
John Saunders: you will love the cherry! happy grilling!
BushelAndABasket: I've never used cherry, but sounds good. I will give it a try.
John Saunders: we use cherry for everything, you can not go wrong, it will turn your meat red so you might think it is not cooked long enouph, but cherry does turn your meat red. happy cooking John Saunders
BushelAndABasket: Your right I cleaned it up and helped a lot. Thanks
jh31ms: You need to change the foil on your drip tray. That's not smoke from the wood. Word doesn't smoke at 400 degrees.
BushelAndABasket: It boils down to preference. My favorite is Mesquite but Hickory or Maple would be a possible choice. Play with it and have fun you never know what you might like better.
Greg Krabbe: Hello just bought my Texas Traeger and was wondering what pellets you used to cook the Ribeye's? Thanks
AnotherAmateur: Well, that might be fun for you, but for me the fun is eating a great steak, pulled pork, smoked salmon, or baby back ribs. Check out my electric smoker oven recipes.
AnotherAmateur: Very nice. When you've finished that perfectly cooked steak, I have a great beef stew recipe to use the left overs in. Hope you'll take a look sometime. Thanks for such an informative video!
BushelAndABasket: Your right at 400 degrees your grilling. That's why my title says how to GRILL a rib eye steak on a traeger smoker grill. As for the sauce it a matter of taste and for me that's the way I like them. The nice thing about the traeger is you don't have to cook the steak for 45 minutes to get a smoke flavor that's because you are smoking with wood pellets.
Coolride17: That's grilling at 400 degrees. I cook my ribeyes in my $40 barrel smoker about a foot over the coals, and they smoke in their own dripping grease, they take about 45minutes that far from the flames, but in that smoke they taste just like you ate at a steakhouse, and you don't need all the sauce for them to taste great.
BushelAndABasket: The thing about smoking is there are so many ways to do it. The fact that I chose to do it with something that makes it easier for me doesn't make it bad it just makes it different. It also gives me the opportunity to grill when I want to. I could use a rub or seasoned but in this case I wanted to use bbq sauce. This video was meant to help those of use that wanted to use something other than smoking with logs. Thanks for you comment and enjoy your smoking.
disturb3d15: Two things I dislike about your video. You put bbq sauce on your steak, and you have an electric, auto smoker. The fun in smoking is controlling the heat with your own logs.
BushelAndABasket: Well shortly after this video I did clean the pan as you suggested in your post. Though the fact was the rib eyes still had a great smoke flavor, but I do appreciate your suggestion.
jmar6972: Dude, that smoke is burnt sugars and fat. Clean your drip pan, and get some grill grates
