Robb Walsh's Barbecued Cowboy Steaks
125 mins (prep 95, cooking 30)
12 ingredients
4-8 servings
Based on a recipe from the July 2003 issue of Bon Appetit, and is its cover photo. Robb Walsh is the author of Legends of Texas Barbecue Cookbook, and is based in Houston, Texas. The intro says, "Want to cook like a real Texas cowboy? This is the recipe for you. Adapted from a method found at Cooper's Old Time Pit Bar-B-Que in the Hill Country town of Llano, Walsh's homage to the range involves grilling the meat over mesquite coals and chips. The result is a profound experience in smoky flavor -- and history. 'Mesquite grows as thorny scrub all over Texas....It's basically a nuisance, so cooks are happy to use it for grilling and smoking.'" Further, "Those with Texas-size appetites will require an entire steak; for most others -- even the heartiest of meat lovers -- half of one of these rib steaks is probably plenty." Naturally, my DH loves this recipe! :) Prep time includes the 30 minutes to soak the mesquite or hickory wood smoke chips and the one hour standing time.
