since the dawn of time, many have pondered the age old question: “can you BBQ a tomahawk ribeye on a boat?”
yesterday, 7 stalwart, salty souls ventured by sea to the sandy shores of punta arena on vieques to settle this quandary once and for all.
we are pleased to report that yes, yes you can.
and it turns out to be amazing.
The science is settled - that is a glorious piece of meat.
The stakes are high when the steaks are at sea level. But obligate carnivore means obligate carnivore. :)
Can you BBQ some bugs and creepy crawlies because by next year that's what the WEF will have you BBQing?
Cultural appropriation alert: tomahawk
The steak looks great, but the water is calling my name!
Science is served, rare.
Your steakholders will be proud. Science.
As long as you cooked that steak to 145 degrees, the CDC says it's safe and effective!
That’s not BBQ. That’s grilling.
I’m glad you’re having a good vacation you deserve it.
Reporting from the front lines of paradise....
Been wondering about that my entire life . And now I know . My second biggest question is when and where are you picking me up for the next excursion?
I hope the cats got some..........
Gato, It's easy to grin
When your ship comes in
And you've got the stock market beat.
But the man worthwhile,
Is the man who can smile
When his shorts are too tight in the seat.
Lovely. I will not show this to my husband. The combination of boating and grilling steaks would be too much for him.
A word of caution. Never do wings on your rod mounted grill. We tried to burn our sailboat down doing that. Scorched the teak.
Even I feel wistful. Count your blessings.
I'm allergic to red meat, so I'm going to petition a parallel study on thick pork chops, please. We need to know that white meats so prove out...
That steak will be one of the first things banned for purchase with central bank digital currency. Right after fuel for power boats. That is a good trick with just BBQ with a grill and no oven for a reverse sear. Well done, (not the meat.)
The science is terrific but it is your courage that is most impressive
Carnivore gonna carnivore.
Nobody deserves this more :-)
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
Thank goodness there are still people out there doing the right things for the Earth. ;-)
This is real Science. I just hope you can successfully replicate your results.
Thanks for all you do. Humankind will be forever in your debt.
grilled ribeye at anchor on a beautiful day, who could ask for more, beautiful
Your willingness to potentially sacrifice such a gorgeous piece of meat on our behalf is much appreciated, and we’re glad no such sacrifice was required in the end.
OMG...that view is in Culebra. Right? So jealous. Have a wonderful time!
I presume the steak was unvaccinated.
And you were well-marinated.
Dude, you're overcooking it.
As my father used to ask/answer: "Yes, but are you truly happy?" "Absolutely!"
This needs fact checking. Too bad it's still half a foot of snow outside.
I just ate, but you are making me hungry again!
Some science can be settled. This is one of those cases! Thank you, Sr Gato.
Looks amazing and your dedication to science really is limitless!
So much perfection in this one photo...thanks for sharing your science!
It's a relief to know that we still have dedicated scientists out there.
I tried in Nicaragua, doesn't work. Is there some democratic adjustments that need to be made?
has anyone offered to marry you yet?
AND! YOU! COOKED! IT! WITH! CO2! PRODUCING! PROPANE! and not that bastard gas butane.
So where does one sign up to be a gatopal™? #ForScience
We thank you for your sacrifice!
For a very brief time in the beginning of my adolescence, I tried to be a vegetarian.
It is always futile to deny one's own nature. I am woman; I eat steak, and inside that gorgeous charred crust I want to see blood.
Ahem. I know you said "on a boat" and not "at sea," but does this truly settle the fundamental BBQ question? The photo seems to show Beaufort 0 or 1:
0--Calm. Smoke rises vertically. Sea like a mirror.
1--Light Air. Direction shown by smoke drift but not by wind vanes. Sea rippled.
Either way, I bet the smoke drift smelled pretty righteous.
You took one for the team.
Thank you for offering your bodies for the betterment (is that a word?) of humankind.
I hope you brought a meat thermometer and cooked to 128F. That’s my steak number.
I'm wondering what wine or scotch you drank
Such a beautiful part of the world. Thank you for sharing!!!
Science wins again. . . every time.
Eres un gatito muy malo. Did it for science indeed, estás disfrutando demasiado de la vida.
