Steak on the big green egg

It’s time to take those steak skills to the next level on your Big Green Egg and this recipe is here for the assist.  We’re going old school, retro, flashback if you will and cooking a big and juicy Porterhouse Steak.  We love the flavor of this steak and the Porterhouse has a bigger filet, which is always good.  We went with a choice cut for this recipe, but I may go prime if the marbling looks better.  It’s a steak by steak thing for us.
