When you have a choice.

  • So I am camping down at Oriellys for Friday and Saturday.

    Wife sends me on mission to cook the skewers and away I go to camp kitchen


    I am then presented with a choice.

  • Was a pretty busy spot and being in a National park was not able to have a fire. :(

  • Did you also cook the steak on the flat top? If so, how did you cook it? Have not pan seared a steak in a while, and even when I did, I finished in oven after the Maillard reaction, was done. Would think is would be a lot of turning on a flat top?

  • yes to the steak on the flat top.


    Simply turned and checked Internal temp with thermapen. They were thin steaks say 3/4 of an inch.


    Incidently the thermapen died after i had finished cooking.


    Thought it was the battery but changed it when i got home and it still does not work.

  • Most have 2 batteries, did you check both? One on top of the other! I guess I should ask which you have? I guess the new Mk 4 are just 1 AAA and my old "regular" Thermapen takes 2 of the big round ones.

  • So put a new battery in again to see whether it would start working and as I was putting the back on it started working. Ok so tightened the screw and tried again (opened and closed probe) no not working. :mad as:


    Hmmm pulled apart again. Took battery out and put in again and accidentally dropped it onto counter in kitchen. :huh:


    Put battery back in and it came on as I was screwing back on. Ok opened and closed 4 times and it works fine. :shrug:


    Maybe loose wire I don’t know but let’s see how we go.
