Gas Stove + Cast Iron + Frying Steak = Smoke in the house!
21 000 BTU Gas stove
Lodge/Calphalon Cast Iron Skillet/pan
36" wide 600 CFM chimney Range hood w/ 6" duct
9'-0" ceiling entire floor
1" thick Costco steak/Rib eye/tenderloin~
Grape seed oil and Butter + dry garlic
Photoelectric Sensor Smoke Alarm
my steak is marinated w/ salt and pepper (sometimes montreal spice)
i turned on my stove high, and the Cast Iron is screaming HOT for 5minutes!
used very little grape seed oil,
frying the steak, flip it every 3 minutes
melting butter and garlic on top to finish
and my whole entire ground floor is smoked up to the ceiling
Smoke alarm doesn't come on as often after i swapped out Builder's cheap smoke alarm w/ a photoelectric one
smoky house, but beautiful and tasty well seared Medium Rare meat
What am i doing wrong, please advise~
when my wife fry a steak w/ a non-stick pan, no smoke......she prefer not to use the CI, since it's too heavy...
