  • Smoked Filet Mignon

    This is an Edwards’ household classic. This is the steak I make when we have something to celebrate, when one of us has had a hard week or if one of us is trying to comfort the other. No joke, the first time I made this steak my wife and I stood at our kitchen counter and at an entire filet standing up, THAT’S how good this thing is. We have since ordered steaks at restaurants and had steaks at get togethers. It never fails my wife gives me those eyes telling me “It’s not your special steak”. And it’s not. I don’t generally try to brag on here. But this steak is damn good. Make it. Do it. Like tomorrow. Happy Holidays, everyone!
