4:17 pm
>> i'm with you. i appreciate you going into it slowly. y so how long do put the rub on it? overnight? a couple hours? >> i wouldn't do it overnight because i think it will cure and you don't want a big piece of master piece jerkey. you want r theeally nice perfectly seasoned. about half an hour, 20 minutes before we hit the grill. you don't want to blast with at that high he for a very long time, because iwill just kind of char on the outside and not really cook on the inside. so you're going to want to get a good ar on it. maybe take it off the really high heat and let it get to temperature. we've pre-grilled a little bit these really nice tomatoes, advance the process a bit. either tomatoes, fresh grilled red onions. while we're making our steak, what we like to is grill our vegetables withe a lit bit of garlic. then we kind of puree it. right away it turns into

4:19 pm
we done. don't do it. it's too thick and it's not going to be you what expect out of a good quality piece of meat. if you want a well done steak, buy a filet mignon or don't. two m sitting here with people who were scared of rare meat. you can't tell me that did not look good. >> it did look good,t they can always do it better than i can. >> you have to practice. you've got to try. >> this is the season to do >> i like a little pink inside. my wifeli is you. >> come on, now. you can't be afraid of it. >> i'm not afraid of it.j i t like a little pink. >> if yo like the steak, grill today. >> perfect day.
