OMG! I saw your post in the dinner tonight thread.
I want to come over! Look at the size of the filet on that porterhouse! I keep seeing the supermarket labeling steak as porterhouse and then stripping off the filet portion.

Is that legal? It isn't in Canada.

A thing of beauty, Uncle Bob. I haven't cooked a steak over wood coals since Boy Scouts.

Your photos are so good I can even smell that irresistible aroma.

Guess I'll head off to the kitchen for that bowl of cold cereal. Sigh.

UncleBob, that's the best looking grilled steak I've seen in a long, long time. At this point, I'm wishing that you really were UncleBob, and that I was visting. You'd be my favorite uncle for sure.

NOw that's not saying that I can't get a phenominal steak off of my Webber. I'm just looking at the setup and thinking how great it is to cook and eat out in the woods. Reminds me of a tree fort I shared with a freind when we were about 17 years old or so. We had a fire pit, and grilled steaks over campfires. It was a magical time to be a teen, with just enough money in the pocket to get a couple of good steaks, or shells for hunting rabbit or grouse, and some pretty great meals over a fire, with great freinds. What can be better?

I am envious. Good stuff my freind.

While I'm wishing, I sure could go for a walleye from a deep, cold lake in Canada -- filleted, rolled in white cornmeal, and fried in bacon grease in a CI skillet over the fire.

You'd be welcome my friend...anytime. ~~~ Anything outdoors has always been one of my passions..Especially cooking over open fires....from camping trips on horses, cooking on sand bars while fishing, in hunting camps, to hanging around the farm's BBQ pit as a youngster watching "Sugar Man", "Cap" and "Peter Rabbit" ...three of the best pit men I've ever seen or had the pleasure to know, work their magic....Wood was always the fuel...There's something magical about food cooked over/with hardwoods reduced to coals and embers...Nothing compares to it!!! Foods take on a character/flavor all their own that really can't be duplicated ~~ Good quality hardwood lump charcoal burned down runs a close second...but no cigar!

"Lizzie" I never cooked walleye, but I have cooked several species of fish out of the Rivers/Lakes....Time from being caught, cleaned, rolled in cornmeal, and dropped in hot oil?....30 minutes tops!!! Talk about good!!!!
Yes ma'am!! I guarantee it!!!!!
