What temp were those steaks cooked at? They look really good!

The Pit Boss said 520F which i think is around max , I didnt wait any longer to find out, it was about 10-15 minutes to warm up . Warm up with the heat plate closed, then open it to expose flame ,  it comes thru the heat plate and barely kisses the bottom  of your food . Im totally guessing here but maybe over 600 .  Probably need the  gun  thermometer to get a an accurate reading right above flame.

The flame broiler used to be an option on the Louisiana Grills. Louisiana and Pit Boss are both built by Dansons. They now offer the flame broiler standard in both their product lines.

Dansons announced a few months back that the Pit Boss line up is outselling their Louisiana offerings and are outselling everyone under the 1 grand price point with the exception of Traeger.

Its pretty impressive. I can see myself doing all my steaks on this .

Today I candy smoked some Bacon , Light brown sugar and Grill Mates Sweet and Smoky rub.    I set the grill for around for around 350 that was too hot ,,probably because I didnt give it any settle time.
I ate the burnt pieces and the fam enjoyed the rest. Ill need some practice with the bacon.

Those steaks look fabulous, nice job.  :thumbup:
Burnt bacon, undercooked bacon, I don't care I'll eat it!  :P
I did some brown sugar, cayenne pepper bacon the other day. Indirect on Q-Matz  at 300 degrees, took about 45 minutes but was totally worth it. Next time I'll dial it back on the Cayenne.

Thanks that flame broiler on the Pit Boss is a great feature !

 The weekend is here so i picked up some IBP St louis cut ,  I dont do spares that often but Im thinking  225 4 1/2 to 5hrs .  Ill prob get some apple juice or maybe Stubbs to mop. This will be  the first smoke with the B&B pellets , curious to see if I can tell the difference if any from Traeger.

B&B are rebranded BBQ Delight pellets. You will notice the quality. I would go 180/smoke for one hour and 250 the rest of the way.....but that's just me........

It all ended well .     Started on smoke P6 , temp was dropping down to 130 at  one point so I moved it up to 200 for an hr. And then up to 250 . Total 4hr30 min , one of the racks was more done , I didnt realized how thin it was .
