Grilled Steaks:

2 T-Bone Steaks on a white pan

  • For the Steaks we simply sprayed them with olive oil and used about 2 teaspoons of Sweet Garlic and Onion Rub for each steak. If you are serving with a flavorful sauce, salt and pepper are sufficient, if you prefer.

Add steaks to a hot fire over indirect heat to sear. We used hickory for smoke flavor over a 400° fire.
