    Exclamation HOW DO YOU GRILL T-BONES PROPERLY ?

    Guys, I have a package of expensive T-Bones (a.k.a. porterhouse I think?) and I don't want to mess them up on the grill. Everytime I try to BBQ something I screw it up - Help!

    I like my steak rare. I usually use my gas grill for steaks for better temp. control.

    I get the grill up to 425-450F and then clean the grate and apply olive oil with a paper towel using tongs. Close the lid for a couple minutes to get the grate hot again and throw the steaks on for about 4 minutes on one side. After 4 minutes open the lid and flip. 4 minutes later take them off.

    If you like them a little less bloody turn them 90 for a few minutes after the second flip. That'll give you the cross-hatch people like too.

    I should add that I never season T-bones or Porterhouse or any other highly marbled cut of beef with anything but salt and pepper. No need IMHO.

    BTW, a porterhouse steak is a different cut than a T-bone. I like them both, but if I have the money a porterhouse will always get my attention first.

    A nice rub of garlic and lemon pepper.

    Charcoal grill, let charcoal get good and gray.

    3 minutes on each side to sear then move to side out of direct heat, put lid on grill.

    About 15 minutes per side for medium.

    You will have 2 of the juiciest, best steaks you ever ate!

    I like mine medium well. Not cooked over the fire, off to the side. For thicker cuts it takes time to get them cooked.

    I always use black pepper. For the MW done I generally also toss on a little Worcestershire somewhere in the process too.

    A buddy of mine used to cook them direct on the fire for a few minutes or less to "seal the juices" he said. then put them on the side to finish. He made good steaks.

    I leave grill meat up to my wife. She's disciplined.
    Olive oil, salt, pepper.
    For say 1 1/2 thick, grill on high 3 min, crisscross to make grill marks another 3 min and same for the other side. This should give you a med rare piece.
    Tracers work both ways.

    I like to poke a fork into the steaks several times. Then cover the bottom of a pan with Jack Daniels. Let them sit in the fridge for 30 minutes and flip them for another 30 minutes. Fire the propane grill and get it up to around 300 to 350.

    Lay the steaks on the grill and put a nice thick slice of bacon on top of each steak as they cook. I like mine medium, my wife likes hers burnt. Flip them every couple minutes. I cut them open to check to see if hers is cooked enough. Mine is done when I am hungry.
