Recipe notes
Here's a basic grilling recipe for perfect ribeye steaks, on either a gas or charcoal grill. Once you have the technique down, experiment with rubs, herbs, sauces, or compound butters.
RECIPE Preparation
  1. Heat grill to medium-high or heat coals in a charcoal grill until they glow bright orange and ash over.  Lightly oil hot grates.
  2. Let steaks stand at room temperature for about 20 minutes. Season both sides of each steak with coarse salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
  3. Grill steaks for about 6 minutes on the first side, rotating 90 degrees at the halfway mark to create cross-hatch grill marks, if desired. Using tongs, flip each steak to the other side and grill for another 6 minutes, or until desired doneness. We suggest medium-rare, which would register 125 degrees on an instant-read thermometer.
  4. Let steaks rest for 8 -10 minutes before serving.
