Good post mark, this is the traditional way in the UK to get that flavor on your steaks.
1 fill a watering can with sprinkler nozzle
2 Place bbq lighter cubes in a plastic bag with your steaks and marinade in the fridge for 6 hrs.
3 put on a silly hat
4 consume 6 cans of German larger
5 place a stool next to the bath
6 place steaks in a frying pan and get into the bath holding the frying pan in your left hand.
7 get your partner to light the butane blow torch. Tip if you forgot step 2 use a kerosene blow torch.
8 get your partner to mount the stool and sprinkle a steady stream of water down the back of your neck as you apply the blow torch to the meat.
9 when you have got the correct charcoal finish let the steak rest in the dustbin, change and go out for a curry.
I would recommend for the novice to fill the bath.
