Butchering a Beefy Picanah

Attention all meat lovers! Have you ever had a grilled steak that's gone south? Well, it's happened to the best of us, including yours and the internets favorite bbq expert, ME; the Grillionaire!

That's right, I recently overcooked a beautiful wagyu picanah steak, and I want to share my juicy story with you.


In my latest video, I was firing up my Monument Grills Clear-View 4 Burner Gas Grill, using a rotisserie, to cook the steak to perfection. I wanted to add a smoky flavor to the steak, so I added a wood chip box. HOWEVER the flames got a little too hot and caused the smoke box (along with the juices from the steak) to catch a few flames. THUS the steak ended up caramelized on the outside, leaving it in a new cooked category "caramelized medium-well-done".

To be fair and FULLY transparent here, I used the new Meat Stick 4 (click the link for a discount on this NEW product) for this cook. It warned me that the probe was getting too hot, when the grill SHOULD HAVE been running at 425ºF. So, because of this new product, I was able to save my cook....for the most part. There was still some red in there, which is good; not great.

Let's Be Pun-ny About It.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not one to steak my claim to fame, but this time I really burned the steak. I know, I know, it's a tough cut to swallow, but that's just part of the grilling journey. As they say, there's always a rare opportunity to learn and improve, so that's what I'm going to do.

I'm serving up a heaping helping of humility and owning up to my mistake. I'm not afraid to admit that I overcooked the steak, and I hope you'll join me on this juicy and crispy adventure. Feel free to roast me in the comments, I deserve it! But we ALL know, you CAN NOT roast me more than I did the steak! So, grab your bibs and get ready to sink your teeth into the latest video on YouTube.

Remember, cooking the perfect steak is no piece of meat, but that's what makes it so flavorful. So, let's embrace the char...err FLAVOR, and keep grilling!
