But he wants to be invited back!

I'd do the water thing to avoid excess smoke.

Where do you get that from?

There's no "best." Assuming that the smoke point is high enough. It's all about what you want the steak to taste like. It will take on some of the flavor of the oil.

I use grapeseed oil for salad dressing and not a lot more, as I think it tastes like grapes. Strangelyenough.

I don't think steak needs any oil, myself. But when I do use oil, I only use ev olive oil. Because I like the taste and it reminds me of bistecca alla fiorentina.

it named the high smoke point, natural flavor complimenting it, and something about the chemical make up matches the steak.

it was an interesting read...looking for it now with little success.

Wow.....i really knocked their socks off. What a success. I'm proud of myself.

It is so difficult to cook for other people. This is only my 2nd time. I normally just cook for my wife...
