For anyone who's on ar15.com, this picture will look...familiar.
They have a tradition over there of taking whats called "dinner pics". A meal, presented with a knife, handgun, rifle and reloads, plus alcohol for those who drink are the bare minimum requirements. I didn't have anything exciting or important to blog about, so I took a dinner pic of my meal tonight.
Food is as follows: Steak is seasoned with a dry rub using paprika, chili powder, cumin, Tex Joy, kosher salt, freshly pressed garlic and brown sugar. Seasoned 3 hours before grilling, set out to room temperature 30 minutes before grilling. Potatoes were cubed, then cooked on a skillet with Cajun seasoning and olive oil. Tex Joy and cheese top off the broccoli.
Guns: A Saiga AK-47 type rifle that I converted myself, a Gen4 Glock 19, and reloads for both.
Knife: New production USMC Kabar
Drink: Jack Daniels
Extras: A ballcap from my Alma Mater, and my Aggie ring/wedding ring just to add a little something shiny to the picture.
This rub is a keeper. Unless the steak is being prepared specifically to pair with another dish, this rub is how I will do it from now on. Best steak I think I've ever grilled.
