Traeger Smoked T-Bone
One of my favorite steaks ever is the T-Bone or Porterhouse steak. We have been making T-Bone steaks for a number of years, but recently have been on a bit of a steak break. Probably because I wasn’t getting consistent results out of my old BBQ. I can not state how much I love T-Bones. I love the variety that it offers between the New York Sirloin Steak and the Filet Mignon. When flipping through my Traeger recipe book, I came across the smoked T-Bone steak and was immediately fascinated by the concept. So, we gave it a whirl tonight.
The steak came out nice and juicy with plenty of flavor. The smoking of the steak provided an interesting and different taste to the T-Bone than I am accustomed to, but it was a welcome bit of variety. I probably wouldn’t make this every time, but it definitely is worth having in the repertoire for when I want a little bit of variety in my palette.
- 2 T-Bone Steaks about 1 inch thick.
- Course Salt

- After the 30 minute smoking has finished, turn the grill to the "High/450" Setting.
- Cook until the steaks hit an internal temperature of 140F (or approximately another 20 minutes).
- Allow the steaks to rest for 5 minutes and serve.
