Smoked tomahawk steak

Smoked tomahawk steak

I love smoking food, it’s a great way to add flavor and make the meat tender and juicy. Just think of spare ribs, brisket, chicken and all the other types of meat I have smoked for you. That’s why it’s so strange that we don’t smoke steaks more often.I am not talking about the reversed sear method, where we grill the steak at the end. I am talking about proper smoking. I am talking about layering of flavor and building a crust.
