cooked over the fireplace. The blocks are temporary until I get the base welded, the metal roofing material is used so I can funnel more heat straight up. After burning most of the day I raked some coals forward between the blocks, added some small splits of pine,sugar maple, small ironwood and some smaller oak. After that burned down I added some smaller splits of beech. About 4:20 I put the steaks on, 4-4-2, four minutes each side then flip over for another two. The steaks came out perfect (from the wife) loved the taste of them.
