My father was a meat cutter, and growing up, I never really wanted steak. He brought them home frequently, so it wasn't really a "treat" to have one. I actually liked hot dog night more than steak night. But I've gotten over that and it is very nice to have a big thick steak every now and again. My wife requests steak more than anything else I grill up. This one was about 2.5 inches thick, so my wife and I shared it.
