Cowboy Steak…

I’ve spent time in the retail/wholesale beef business causing me to think about the South American Asado (grilling of meat)… so… I’m grilling Cowboy Steaks and other good things on a grill I designed.

I call it the Happy Grill.

Why do I call it the… “Happy” Grill?

It’s not the only reason (maybe at a later time, I’ll share the other)… but, when I finish grilling, I didn’t hover over the grill to make sure I wasn’t preparing “burnt offerings” for dinner.1

Then, the most important part… as I pull the meat from the grill… I can already taste it… like… the other meat I’ve grilled (see photos below of various grillings of beef… lamb… fish… chicken).  My mouth starts to water… I know what’s for dinner… my taste buds and tummy are going to be “happy”!

Today… I’m thinking about what those Cowboy Steaks tasted like… time to grill another one!

The Happy Grill has never been on the market.  I’m trying to determine if there’s interest… if I should offer it. That’s what this page is about.  If you’re inspired by what you see to give your thoughts, I’d appreciate it.

Contact me if you have interest in the Happy Grill… to be notified if the Happy Grill is offered for sale… or, if you have questions… comments.

Right now… for legal reasons… photos of the grill are not posted… just the grilled meat.

The grilled meat shown here is what a normal food market carries—select or choice beef… meat that’s on sale.

If the average cut of meat can be home-grilled to rival what a fine restaurant offers… then the prime cut… the Wagyu Beef Steak… can be grilled… not just confidently… but, producing the experience I’ve had with the Cowboy Steaks—looking forward to repeating that first juicy bite… to grill another one.  I still remember my first Happy Grilled Wagyu Beef Ribeye.  Is a grill that can do this simply… without a lot of fuss… worth further consideration?  That’s what I’m trying to find out.

1With enough fat and heat… there can be a flare-up—keep the water spray bottle handy.  On a larger model Happy Grill… there can be the rare flare-up that generally goes out when the lid of the heat source grill is closed.  On the smaller model Happy Grill placed on the $100 propane grill or over a camp fire… there can be flare-ups on the fattier cuts… especially with the olive oil brushing.  Again… the grill sprayed with water and then the heat source grill lid closed… they generally stay out.  (Watch out for grease flare-ups when spraying with water, though.)

2A tip I’ve learned from other grillers and meat packers is to brush meat with a good quality olive oil as you’re grilling.  I’ve also used butter.  This meat was brushed with seasoned-to-taste extra virgin olive oil as it was flipped on the grill.

3No brushing with olive oil… just seasoned.

4Brushed with a 50/50 mix of cold-pressed virgin coconut oil/extra virgin olive oil.


There’s meat… then there’s the Richest of food… nourishment for True healing.

27 Work not for the food which perisheth, but for the food which abideth unto eternal life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him the Father, even God, hath sealed. 28 They said therefore unto him, What must we do, that we may work the works of God? 29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. (ASV) John 6:27-29

And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.  Matthew 4:3-4
