Chef Kerry Simon of Simon at Palms Place in Las Vegas grills steak and vegetables over a hot charcoal fire, then smokes a whole chicken over the smoldering coals to eat later.

Quentin Bacon
Recipe from 
Servings: 4
Prep Time: 45 mins
Total Time: 45 mins
    1/2  cup  extra-virgin olive oil
     tablespoons  fresh lemon juice
     tablespoon  red wine vinegar
     tablespoon  Dijon mustard
     tablespoon  chopped oregano
        Salt and freshly ground pepper
       medium zucchini, sliced on the diagonal 1/3 inch thick
       red onion, sliced 1/3 inch thick
       red bell pepper, cored and quartered
    1/4  pound  shiitake mushrooms, stemmed
     pound  asparagus
     bunch  scallions, roots trimmed and bottom 6 inches only
       1-inch-thick porterhouse steaks (1 pound each)
Light a charcoal grill. In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil with the lemon juice, red wine vinegar, mustard and oregano and season with salt and pepper. Transfer half of the dressing to a large bowl. Add the zucchini, onion, red bell pepper, mushrooms, asparagus and scallions. Season the vegetables with salt and pepper and toss.
In a perforated grill pan, grill the vegetables over high heat, tossing, until charred in spots, 10 minutes; return to the bowl, add the remaining dressing and toss.
Season the steaks generously with salt and pepper. Grill the steaks over high heat, turning occasionally, about 11 minutes for medium-rare meat. Transfer the steaks to a carving board and let rest for 5 minutes. Slice the meat from the bones and serve with the grilled vegetables.
