And that's why you use a wood chip box. It's made of about 1/8" plate steel, it's about 8x6" and about 2" deep with a lid with holes in it.
You get some hickory or mesquite chips, (or any nut or fruit wood) soak them in water for about 24 hours so they smolder and don't burn, and you throw them in there.
There's more than one way to get your carcinogens. My way you get the smoke flavor as well.
Touch your index finger to your thumb. When the steak feels exactly like the flesh part of your hand under your thumb....perfect.
That's going to get someone here burned.
