Cook Steaks Like Billy


  • Prime Filet Mignon
  • Unsalted butter (about 1 tablespoon per filet)
  • Old No. 3 Rub





Apply Old No. 3 Rub to the filets, solid coverage on both sides, but not too thick. Go ahead and melt the unsalted butter for basting later.



Get cookin’ and build a big ol’ smokin’ hot fire; shoot for about 350 degrees.  Red and ashy – time to cook!  Add wood chunks for more smoke.



Place the filets on the pit for indirect heat; about ten minutes in this position, flip once.

Ready for searin’!  Move the filets directly over the hot coals and flames.  This is time for vigilance.  About 2-3 minutes on each side for medium.  Finish by basting with melted butter; expect a flare of fire.

Remove the filets from the pit a little under cooked relative to your likin’, because the filets continue cookin’ internally.  A resting period of a few minutes allows the steaks juices to return to the center of the cut. 

Let the feastin’ begin.
