Professional Outdoor Grilling Tips - Instructions
Q: What are your professional tips on grilling the perfect steak?
A: That's easy - a hot fire, clean grate and very well seasoned steaks. To season the steaks, first I
drizzle on olive oil then use lots of good sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper for a standard steak.
For steaks with a different flavor, I like to make my own pepper mixture. Always start with cracked
black pepper, but then you can add some chili flakes, white pepper, a little garlic powder, a little bit
of Anjou powder or a chipotle powder, which is a little smokier and hotter. You can use any of these
that you like in any combination and, of course, salt.
As far as cooking goes, getting your grill hot enough is key, as is not turning your steak too many
times on the grill. Sear the steak really well on one side and then turn it to cook on the second side.
If you sear it on one side, flip and then cook it on the other, you'll seal the juices inside and will
have a juicy steak in the end.
Q: What cuts of meat do you prefer to grill?
A: They are all good but to me thicker is better. I have no problem with any beef. I love all cuts, but
