I fancy myself a bit of an aficionado of the grill. I'm by no means an expert but I can definitely throw it down on the BBQ with the best of them...and by "them" I mean the other dads I hang out with. Steaks are actually one of the easiest things to cook on the grill. They're so simple in fact, that a lot of people mess it up. Here's all the ingredients for the perfect rib-eye. Salt, pepper, olive oil, butter...that's it. Anymore than that and you're over doing it. Notice, these aren't even prime. For this I intentionally just used the rib eyes you grab straight off the shelf.


I like to reverse sear mine. Make sure you take them out of the fridge about half an hour before you throw them on the grill. First, you salt and pepper the living hell out of them. Don't be shy about it, especially if it's a thick cut. I use salt and pepper grinders so I can get nice course grains of S&P. After that, you'll wanna pour some olive oil over them and rub in the salt and pepper. If you wanna reverse sear them, it's gonna take a little longer but it's definitely worth it. You'll wanna start out with your grill at about 225 degrees. Just set the steaks in there for about 30 to 45 minutes until the meat is at 125 degrees. You'll need a thermometer to make sure the temp is right. After that, take them out and set them inside while you raise the temperature on the grill to 450. Throw the steaks back on the grill for 2 minutes 15 seconds, flip, and repeat. That should get the steaks to right about 135 maaaaaaaaybe 140 degrees (Medium Rare). If you want them done anymore than that, do me a favor. Put down the tongs, step away from the grill, go inside, slap yourself, and never touch steak again you steak hating monster.  After you take them off the grill, throw some butter on them, let it melt a second then spread it around. Let the steaks rest for 10 minutes and congratulations, you are now eating the best steak you've ever had in your life. #MicDrop I get all my grilling accessories at AHI-Texas.com
