Reverse searing is the ultimate way to cook a perfect steak. Using this method makes it easy to sear in juices and leaves your meat full of flavor and perfectly tender. There’s a reason so many BBQ pit masters are using this cooking method. It’s what the cool kids are doing.
For the tastiest results, Big Poppa seasons his fillets with the award-winning combination of his Double Secret Steak Rub and Little Louie’s Seasoning. Together, these seasonings boost the natural flavor of the fillet and create an unbelievably delicious finish.
