Basic how-to instructions for cooking steaks on a charcoal grill.
Some swear there’s nothing like a charcoal grill. We say it’s even better with bison. Rub steaks with olive oil, salt, and pepper or the rub you love. Let them rest at room temperature for 2 hours before cooking.
- Use a clean grill.
- Pile coals high in center and allow them to get white-hot.
- Spread coals evenly with tongs, then place oiled grill grate low and close to coals.
- Apply prepared steaks and cover with lid, following cooking times below.
