2 Grill Prep

3 The Cook

  • On a Charcoal Grill

  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.

  • Place your steaks onto the indirect or cooler side of the grate and close the lid. Cook your steaks over indirect heat until they reach an internal temperature 145° F, approximately 20-25 minutes.

  • To finish and add grill marks, lift the grate and use a poker or tongs to stoke the coals and increase the heat. 
  • Replace the grill grate and place the steaks directly over the coal side of the grill for 1 minute, then make a quarter turn (45 degrees) and cook for 1 more minute to create the cross grill marks. Allow your steaks to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.

  • On a Pellet Grill

  • Place the thermometer probe into the thickest part of your steak, and position it at the center of your pellet grill. 
  • Prepare for a 45-60 minute cooking time, depending on the thickness of your steaks. Smoke your steaks until their internal temperature reaches 145° F.

  • To finish and add grill marks, remove your steaks once they reach an internal temperature of 145ºF and rest under foil. Place aluminum grill grates into the grill, and increase the temperature of your pellet grill to 500° F.

  • Once at temperature, place your steaks onto the hot grates for 2 minutes, then make a quarter turn (45 degrees) and cook them for 2 minutes longer to create the cross grill marks. Allow your steaks to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plethora of flavor Loving the garlic infused meat. Careful not to overcook it. Keep the heat low and cook it slow!
