And Blob it is easy to fuck up steak.
Most people don't know the different cuts. They don't know the grading systems. They don't know what a good steak looks like when it isn't cooked. They don't know how to properly season it.
Most of all they have no clue how to cook it. The chances of going to a friends house, ordering a medium rare steak and actually getting something even close to that seems very slim in my experience.
Absolutely.......you can fuck up anything if you try hard enough. I usually get beff tenderloins from Costco or i have a buddy who owns a butcher shop and he hooks me up with some big ass chunks of prime rib and hacks me off a few roasts and steaks for a real good price. Blobcat does not do the hackin and whackin but he can cook a little.........not Topper levels but I actually enjoy cooking unlike a lot of fellas.
The rub is key and salting, usually like to marinate the steaks in nothing more than buddy's secret rub, lots of salt, olive oil, garlic and occasionally a little red wine. Six to eight hours is usually sufficient, but it's also a good idea to have a decent cue to cook shit on. I love the broil king we picked up last year as opposed to the home depot chunk of shit I had before. I like briquette bbqs but I really don't like having to constantly buy briquettes and I had a bad experience with lighter fluid last year so i hate that shit.
