    First Use / Seasoning the grates...

    Yep I get prime grade from Costco. Did a strip loin last Fri and it turned out pretty decent. Will have to try the ribeye next with what you described! Thanks!

    No charcoal, using the Genesis CEP310 on propane. Do you do the reverse sear on the grill? Or oven first, then to grill for searing? I'm new to grilling and a little nervous about controlling/maintaining the temperature of a grill. So far mostly used direct heat grilling for my steaks, they were 1.5" strips and turned out quite good. But am keen to try the reverse sear. Loving the outdoor cooking as it helps keep cooking smells out of the house!

    I love a well charred steak that is still med rare inside - tried a strip loin last night with lid closed cos it was quite cold and i notice the heat drop significantly each time lid was opened. And cos temp drop so fast, I did not try to oil the grates, basically just threw the steaks on and kept lid closed except for turning and flipping the steaks which I timed it every 2 mins. It was still underdone @ only 90+ at the 8 mins mark! Left them in there on indirect heat for 2 more mins and it reached 130+... I was super happy with the end result, yummy!

    Got it! Thanks! I found a Japanese grocer selling chunks of wagu fat for sukiyaki so I suppose this should work! And yes I keep all the bacon grease for all sorts of things too

    Thanks so much for your tips! How about for steak? Would you leave lid up even during winter grilling?

    And one more question! The lid open sounds logical although Weber's site emphasized to keep it closed...however, is lid open still good for winter grilling? I just got my hands on a Genesis CEP 310, am super excited and would like to grill year round!

    Hey if anyone is still here...? Am new to all these and just wondering what you do with the bacon/bbq sauce when done? Throw it out or would it be edible? Also, I imagine it'd make a mess of the CI pan when the whole process is done, so can i use a disposable aluminum pan instead so I can just throw it out after? As for the frozen bacon fat to oil the grates, are we referring to rendered bacon fat, or an actual piece of the fat? Anyone use coconut oil??
