    Nope not going to watch. It will be a crime against bovine kind. Steaks MUST be flame kissed over coals not tortured by engine cooking.

    The smoke from a grill might get me a DOT inspection

    Ive always thought it would be kinda cool to mount a small smoker in a tool box on the catwalk especially now that a couple brands are 12v powered. Hahahaha

    actually a lot of restaurants use this method, then seer it on an open flame. It’s used for the lunch and dinner rush, hell even more restaurants use a pan and not even on a flame.

    unless it’s cooked by the eater I don’t trust restaurant food.

    Wood pellets are not hazmat and they sell a small pellet grill. You'd need an Apu or inverter though.

    I’ve seared using a Searzall and a torch. I’ve seared using a cast iron skillet and my single burner. And I sometimes wear using the Galanz oven. Each has its benefits. At home, I often use the grill at a high temperature. Using sous vide as a cooking method works well in a truck. Often we do not know when we will stop for the break, and with sous vide, cooking too long doesn’t hurt the meat.

    Done right i have no qualms with pan seared. If i have a thinner cut NY strip i'll do it on the pan. The pan has to be really clean and nice and hot. Med hi heat, a few min on either side and mmmm

    I just season and throw them in the oven set at 280 and cook till the internal temp is where I want for a given doneness (135 for medium), then sear them in the cast iron on high temp. Searing takes like 3 minutes total per steak.

    Wrap it in foil with spices and onions and mushrooms and throw it on the exhaust manifold.

    You must have your cooking calibrated by mileage though
