Thaw in refrigerator. Pat steaks dry and season food before grilling. Use sea salt and freshly cracked pepper or a steak seasonings/ rub. Sear the outside of your steaks over high heat and avoid moving them before ready. This helps with the flavor and juiciness. Use tongs or a spatula to turn your meat on the grill - poking with a fork can damage the meat. Always wash utensils used on raw meat or have separate utensils. Close your grill cover as much as possible while cooking to maintain a temperature around 450F. This helps lock in flavor and prevent flare-ups. For timing, use the 60/40 grilling method. Grill for 60% of the time on the first side, then grill 40% of the time after you turn over the steak. This will give you an evenly cooked steak. After grilling, place your finished steak on a clean plate - never put cooked steak on the plate you used to bring raw steaks to the grill without thoroughly washing it first. Allow your steaks to "rest" tented with foil for 5 minutes between cooking and eating. This will help the juices redistribute for the best-tasting and juiciest steak.
