I'm voting for the 26th... Wonder if Antonio will toss some steaks on the flame trench for us.
Has that ever actually been done?  They'd have to be pretty thin to cook in a few seconds, to be sure... and probably wrapped up in something, as the bits of concrete would detract from the taste.

But it's just the sort of cowboy thing that you could see them doing back in the Right Stuff days...

It'd have to be beef stroganoff to be cooked by a Russian engine. :D
