Perfect Reverse Sear: Finish over Live-Fire or Cast Iron?

In this video, I finally answer the age old question when it comes to reverse searing a steak on the Big Green Egg: live fire or cast iron?  Which sear is the best?  Some believe that there is no substitute for searing directly over a hot fire and yet others opt for a good hot cast iron sear.  Ill tell you this, either way is delicious and my findings may really surprise you!

Make sure to check out the video below, to see which one I prefer and why. 

Here's a little cheat sheet for you for when you grill:

Desired finish Indirect Temp Final Temp
Rare 105-110° 120-125°
Medium Rare 115-120° 130°
Medium 125° 140°
Medium Well 135° 150°
Well Done Please don't do this!!
