I buy all my meat at the "day old" counter. Kroger had a big Tomahawk marked down from $30 to $15, so I figured what the heck. I reverse seared it, and it looked great. Taste was okay, but man did it have a lot of fat. I'm not talking about marbling, but big globs of fat. By the time I trimmed off all the fat, there wasn't much left.

What do you guys think?

interesting, I've never done one, but want to try, the pics on the Big Green Egg page look great. you can see quite a bit of fat in this one too, did yours have more?

Mind had a lot of fat around the edges and the bone. Then there was a lot inside the seams of the meat.

It’s hard to beat a tenderloin.

I've done the "Bludgeon of Beef" quite a few times. Ribeyes typically have some fat in them, it's where the flavor comes from. I'm going to try smoking one in my Memphis pellet grill with a reverse-sear.
I too look for the markdowns at Sam's Club. I've bought tenderloin for $8.49/pound. I still have a few in the freezer.
