This dish has been a long time coming. Years ago when we lived in Colorado there was a local restaurant who's specialty of the house was smoked rib eye steaks. It was a great idea that suffered greatly in the execution. It was something we had forgotten about until recently. We stumbled across some beautiful rib eyes at Whole Foods the other day and when we got them home we just happened to have the smoker going for cold smoked fried chicken. Serendipity. A bit of salt and sugar to season the steaks, followed by an hour in the smoker produced these wonderfully decadent cold smoked rib eye steaks (pictured below). A quick turn on the grill turned them into dinner. (Be jealous.) Once again dinner was devoured before any pictures could be taken. We'll work on that, but truly, good food is meant to be eaten at its peak and that is something to to be taken seriously, especially with steaks as good as these.
