I made up some cevapi (ground beef/pork/lamb sausages. My favorite eastern European food) and and smoked it with hickory chunks.
While different than usual (salt-n-pepper) It's far from ruined.. I am testing out some new rub from a buddy who just started a business selling spices and rub. I bet there are zero complaints from the customers.You ruined that steak with all that other stuff on it. How are you supposed to taste the meat?
this depends! If grilling a filet it gets nothing but salt, pepper, and a then a 5 minute rest with butter. But lately that's been boring. I made a dry rub the other day for a flank steak. Charred it real good on the outside, medium rare in the middle. Made for killer fajitas.You ruined that steak with all that other stuff on it. How are you supposed to taste the meat?
