    Rib-Style Pork Steaks with Corn Pudding

    The butcher had some great looking pork steaks and I couldn't resist getting a few. Instead of grilling them hot & fast, let's cook them up like I would ribs.


    Season & stick 'em on the MAK at 225 to cook low & slow for a good 1 1/2 hours.


    Foil time.


    Move the foiled pork steaks to the top rack, stick on the corn pudding that the wife made up & bump the temp to 350 for an hour (I love the flavor of corn pudding on the grill - Yum!).


    Put the steaks back on to finish. I mixed the foil drippings with a bit of homemade BBQ sauce & my son brushed it on...


    They almost fell apart taking them off the grill


    Smoky, sweet, tangy & tender. The smoky corn pudding accompanied them nicely.


    Thanks for sneaking a peek!

    Here we go. Great cooks everyone! This was tough- had to call in the wife for support.
    The entries,

    Rick B: Steak my way. Home alone? Can you move yet Rick?

    soupyjones: Bacon pork burgers w/goat cheese and granny smith apples. Good looking
    burger soupy. I'll pass on the goat cheese, but the apple sounds
    interesting.

    Stone: MAK burgers. Burgers looked tasty Stone. Really need a plated picture for
    the drool component.

    FLbentrider: Old school brisket. Nice smoke ring. You can see how moist it was.

    Rick B: Surf and turf linguini alfredo. Another great presentation RB.

    Scallywag: Pulled pork w/burritos and smoked pickled eggs. Nice! Pork burritos on
    MAK. I'll take one of those eggs please.

    Tatonka 3A2: Beef chuck mock tender surf and turf. Good cook Tanya. How was the
    Tdust on the seafood?

    Tenthunter: Rib style pork steaks w/corn pudding. Great looking pork steaks. Love
    me some of that corn pudding.

    First place: Rick B - Steak my way. Perfect steak. I need that herb butter.

    Second place: Scallywag. Great flavor changeup from a pulled pork sammie to the
    burritos

    Third place: Tenthunter. I'll bet the pork steaks were great. Nice presentation.

    I think I was enjoying national beer appreciation day too much! Missed the posting - I had been enjoying my other hobby (homebrewing) a bit more than usual it seems! Ribs were good. Onion Rings were great, and sweet potato fries need some work. Working next weekend, but I'm going to plan an attack on this contest thing with a clear head very soon! Great Looking food, and this Rick B guy is a "ringer"!

    TD you are so wrong. I'll make a deal with you. Every week you post, I won't . Fair enough?

    Hah!

    Actually Rick, I find your cooks to be inspiring. I'm still getting the hang of pellet cooking/smoking/BBQ. Now that I have a tool that is easy to use, it has been so much more rewarding than trying the fuss with an old vertical water smoker on a windy day, or an underpowered electric smoker I've had in the past. I hope you don't mind me poking a bit of fun at you. Your cooks look spectacular, and the photography is also very good. I clearly have much to learn, as both a cook and pellet smoker. I will plan to try and enter more of the contests, because its fun to do, but please don't exclude yourself on my behalf. Love seeing what you've prepared and photographed!

    Congrats to the placers. There were some really good and varied entries this week.

    This contest has definitely gotten Soupy's creative juices flowing. I would gladly give up my third place call for those Swine Time Burgers. That was a very creative & inspiring cook! In fact, I plan to give 'em a try.

    Great week guys. Thanks for judging Salmon Smoker & thanks for the contest BP.

    My first time on this side of the fence. It's not an easy call trying to weigh the amount of effort, creativity, and technique, but a lot of fun never the less. And one mustn't forget about the very important "drool component", the presentation - aka "The Money Shot."
