Thinking about grilling some Wagyu Tomahawks this weekend
Thoughts or any tips? What has been your experience with Wagyu beef? Is it worth the hype?

HEB Wagyu steaks and burgers are definitely worth it. Flavor for days.

I agree. I don’t get the appeal of a giant bone. Seems like a bitch to cook and impossible to eat.

It looks cool.

But yah, paying wagyu beef prices for the bone is insane.

Did a reverse sear recently on salt block but cast iron is great also.

Season was S&P only.

250 for 45 minutes till 125 internal.
Hard sear on dry cast iron, 1m on each side.
You can baste with butter and rosemary if you like but I enjoy a hard crust from the dry pan.

Get a salt block if you don’t have one, very versatile. Cooked snow beef solely on block a few months ago. Outstanding.

I've done side by side tests of HEB prime vs wagyu 3 times, and each time was not even close. Prime tasted almost watered down compared to wagyu. Intense beef flavor.

You can't sous vide the tomahawk obviously, though that's how I'd care for wagyu. Just reverse sear and keep the oven temp at 215 until no more than 120. Low enough to get a little extra sear at the end.

Why so low on the oven temp? How long does it take to get to 120?

Of course you can.

Make a bag the size of the tomahawk from an 11 inch roll. You'd probably have to sous vide it in a small ice chest.

100% wagyu isn’t difficult to get. It’s just a breed of cow.

actual Japanese wagyu is another story.

You must have a small arse bathtub. Mine is regular size for a person to fit in, so no problem sous viding steaks, chickens, pop tarts and crawfish of any size in that thing. I can do 3 sacks of crawfish at a time. They come out perfect every time.
