My S I L is a good man on the grill, and this week on a fishing trip we did the Alton Brown recipe montreal seasoning and mayonnaise recipe on strip steaks and they were really outstanding . Really seriously good. So good that we did it twice n three nights. I thought he was kidding when he said he was going to prep and use mayonnaise to Baste mayo on each side to a thickness of about 1/8 inch and then season on top of mayo heavily with Montreal. He did not absolutely pile on the montreal , but the mayo was sort of hard to see under the seasoning. He then let them sit aN hour in refrigerator . Then brought to room temp pre cook. Then put them on a very hot charcoal grill. Seared each side for a few minutes, and then cook like you would time wise for doneness . We like medium rare , this recipe had a great crust, and was perfect medium rare , and was up with the best steaks I ve ever eaten anywhere. And that covers a lot of famous great steak cooks and some fancy ones in th big cities.
