Tomahawk Steak on the BGE

So if ever I am convicted of a capital offense and it results in a penalty of death, I want this post to be my instruction to the warden for my last meal request. I am sure that whatever offense I may commit in the future that results in the need to remove me from polite society will not leave me in the best position to bargain for a meal such as described below but alas, we have decided that the condemned are worthy of a last meal request, and this is mine. So be it.

I'm still using my DigiQ on the BGE, but now that I have a Traeger I have begun to itch for an updated version. Something that I can control and monitor via an app, remotely - like I can on the Traeger. I need to update this link to something that may be what I'm shopping for as a replacement but for now, I'm too lazy and it's hot outside.


  • A prime grade tomahawk steak. 
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Humility and regret (Did you hear that warden?)


Just add salt and pepper to taste - be generous because it is a large cut. You really can't over do it.

Use the reverse sear technique to get the center to about 125 with the BGE closed down enough to keep the egg temperature at around 350 - use the time to start some potatoes. Once the steak is at temp, pull it off. 

Run the egg up to 600 degrees and put a hard sear on the beast.

Let it rest for at least 30 minutes.


Don't really want to address a verdict here.

Sensitive subject.

Also - Pretty proud that I made it all the way to the end without a single Elizabeth Warren joke. 

We would love it if you would drop us a note in the comment section and let us know how your cook went. We are always looking for suggestions and improvements! We have opened up the comments so that anyone can post now, so please do. I'll try not to delete anything unless it is spam or stabs me in the heart.

Please help support our site, buy something you like on Amazon. Simply click through the links below and though you can pick anything, I suggest the thermometer and knives below:

So apparently Thermoworks doesn't sell through Amazon anymore. You must buy direct. Still the thermometer to have. Go here and order direct. unfortunately, we don't get a dime for this but still, it is one you want.

Decided to add a link to the replacement cap I use on my BGE - this is a great replacement because it sheds water if you get caught in the rain.
