Let’s start by describing this amazing cut of beef from my friends at Snake River Farms. This American Wagyu Tomahawk Steak is amazing in both size and flavor. Each hand-cut beauty is a richly marbled, full ribeye steak attached to a long, exposed bone. Each steak is the width of a rib bone which results in a generous cut about 2″ thick. These large steaks include the coveted cap of ribeye so they’re amazing in appearance and incredibly delicious. If you are looking to add some “show” to your next neighborhood grilling session… this is the steak to do that with.

To get started remove the steak from the packaging and cover with a 50/50 mix of Kosher Salt and coarse ground black pepper. Let this sit at room temp while you start the grill.

NOTE: for this cook, I used a Big Green Egg setup for indirect cooking using the ConvEGGtor.

Get the charcoal lit and set the temp to 350°.   For a kiss of smoke flavor, add some Pecan Wood Chips before putting the steak on.

Once the Big Green Egg is holding temperature, put the Snake River Farms Tomahawk Ribeye inside and let it roast until the internal temperature measures 120°.

For this cook that took about an hour, but check 20-30 minutes in using your Thermoworks ThermoPop instant read thermometer. and flip the steak when you do.

Now comes the fun part. Remove the Snake River Farms Tomahawk Ribeye and let it rest for 10 minutes or so while you set up the Big Green Egg for the “Caveman” cook. Some of you may not be familiar with this style of cooking and that is ok as it can be intimidating at first. Basically, you throw the meat right on the coals and cook it for a minute or two each side. For a larger cut of meat, cooking this way is a great way to do it and adds so much flavor and gives the meat a beautiful crust. This is cooking at its most basic level and you can read more information about it here.

To get your Big Green Egg setup for the Caveman cook open the bottom vent all the way, remove the ConvEGGtor and grill grate, and leave the top of the Egg open.

Once the coals are screaming hot, close the bottom vent so you prevent flare ups and put the Snake River Farms Tomahawk Ribeye directly on the coals. Cook this way for a minute or two then flip. Make sure you are wearing heat resistant grilling gloves to protect your cooking hand when handling the bone of the ribeye.
