Top 10 Tips For Cooking BBQ Steak

We, humans, are capable of reaching a progressive level of knowledge, through combining the efforts of millions of people around the world. Moreover, with experimentation we pooled the best techniques to cook a deliciously titillating BBQ steak!

Tip 1

Begin by adjusting the heat; thicker cuts you wish to have well-done require lower heat temperature to achieve the desired “doneness.” Cooking a two-inch thick steak on high will result in a blackened outside and raw center.

Tip 2

(Only if you have a lid with your grill) Arrange the coals on the grill so that one half contains no coals and the other contains all the coals. This will create a hot side of the grill and a cool side of the grill. You’ll be cooking primarily on the cool side of the grill to ensure a juicier, tastier steak.

Tip 3

Seasoning is your friend; although an unseasoned steak tastes good, why settle for good when it can taste great. Some black pepper, salt, onions, olive oil, garlic, and Worcestershire sauce goes a long way.

Tip 4

Whether you want to season or not, always coat the steak with salt at least 40 minutes before grilling. The salt draws the moisture out of the meat, but with nowhere to go, the moisture eventually ends up seeping back into the newly tenderized meat. The longer you let the salt sit on the meat, the more tender it becomes and the more moisture it draws back in.

Tip 5

Choose the right steak; the thickness of the steak should be even, and the muscles or fat in the middle, should be thin. Fat is your ally; there is no such thing as a good diet steak.

Tip 6

Allow the steak to reach room temperature before grilling, for a more evenly-cooked steak.

Tip 7

Flip often. Flipping often, especially if you’re cooking over low heat, helps cook the meat more evenly. When flipping, be sure to use tongs or a spatula. Do not use a fork, as you will begin to lose juices.

Tip 8

Right before the steak is set to be done, remove it from the grill, and let it rest. The muscle fibers relax and allow the juices to travel back through the rest of the steak. Instead of a rock, you have a perfectly cooked steak.

Tip 9

Use tongs. A grilling fork will poke holes in your steak allowing those good juices to escape.

Tip 10

Why not accompany the steak with some potato salad, grilled zucchini, and/or HUMMUS.

Cooking and eating are no longer just an instinct for survival; our taste buds and preferences have evolved dramatically. No one learned how to cook over night, just remember it isn’t try and fail, it is try and learn.
