Many people will disagree with me, but I do not find taking the meat out of the fridge and letting is warm up a bit to make any noticeable difference. I cook my steaks right from the fridge.

As far as how much salt to use for the dry brine, that is hard to answer because it depends on how much salt you like. I would use more than you think you will need, but don't go overboard. Unfortunately the only way to know what that means is through trial and error.

True... Thanks. I'll try not to go overboard with the salt.

you remind me of my buddy ozzy. he'd order his steaks by saying, " i want it rare. just lnock the horns off, wipe it's butt and drag it near the stove before you put it on a plate."

for really rare steaks, you can always melt the butter in a nuker first.

With thicker cuts if I don't leave them out for a while they're med rare in the middle as I like them to be but the rest of the meat is overcooked.

When my parents owned a restaurant, steak was served with a bit of butter on top. When we eat venison steaks, we heat the plates and top the steaks with a dab of butter (unsalted, of course). Dang, I want steak tonight! But, I have leftover buttermilk roasted chicken...
