Reverse searing steaks on the Grill Dome kamado consists of cooking the steaks over indirect heat then finishing them with a quick high-heat sear.  It’s a great method for cooking perfect steaks.  This recipe calls for an onion blue cheese sauce that though somewhat on the unhealthy side…is ridiculously good on steaks and a must try 🙂  Full recipe and video below.


1. Buy some thick ribeyes (bone-in or boneless) preferable at least 1.5″ thick.
2. Sprinkle kosher salt on both sides and let the steaks rest at room temp for 1 hour.
3. Preheat the Grill Dome anywhere between 225° – 275° with the Indirect Cooking Rack in the down position, the Main Cooking Rack, the Half Moon Rack and the Half Moon Ceramic Stone.
4. Cook the steaks on the Half Moon Rack until the internal temp is about 15° – 20° below your target temp. Pull them at that point and sit them aside without covering.
5. Remove the Half Moon Rack, Half Moon Stone and Main Cooking Rack. Open both top and bottom vents wide open and crank the Dome temp up to a searing temp of 700° – 800°.
6. Making sure to always burp the Dome at searing temps…cook the steaks for 45 seconds – 1 minute per side.
7. Pull and let rest for 5 – 10 minutes.
