I love steak. Have eaten steak prepared almost every way. One of my favorite steak places (remain nameless) they swear that the reason they make their steak taste so good is because they can sear their steak with 1000 F heat from a special homemade steak searer appliance that transfers huge amounts of high temp with lots of thermal mass. They showed me this stove. it is run on Nat gas and they have a large cast surface 4 inches thick @ 1200 F. How good do you think you could make a steak with wood gas sear of 2200F?
