HOW TO GRILL A COWBOY CUT RIBEYE

blog-post-1

One of the greatest steaks I have ever grilled is a Cowboy Cut ribeye. I can thank my friends at Lobel’s for introducing me to this!!! These babies are full of flavor, but can be very challenging when put on a grill. Over the years of grilling these monsters I have found some simple tips that guarantee BBQ heaven.

1. Take the steaks out of the freezer in the morning and place them in the fridge. They should defrost by the time you need to put them on the grill (6-8 hours). When they have defrosted or if they are fresh, take them out of the refrigerator 30 minutes to 60 minutes before you place them on the grill.

2. Make sure you season these steaks liberally because they are so thick.

3. Preheat your grill and keep temperatures around 325-350 degrees. You should grill these steaks on indirect heat and finish with the reverse sear over direct heat.
