I love to use my gas grill.  My wife thinks I am a little bit crazy because I am out on my patio grilling almost all year long.  I have a multitude of different things I like to grill: hot dogs, hamburgers, pork tenderloin, pork chops, venison chops, venison steaks and regular steaks.  I take a lot of pride in my cooking skills. Over the years, I have been able to hone my skills to deliver perfectly cooked meats every time.

Here are some of my little tricks that work for me when grilling the perfect steak:

Before grilling a steak, take it out of the refrigerator and let it warm up to room temperature. A few hours before grilling a steak. Lightly salt each side. The salt helps the steak retain moisture guaranteeing a juicy steak.

Another trick is two build a two zone fire where one side of the grill is hot enough to sear the meat and then use the other less hot side to finish cooking.  Very easy to do with a gas grill.  Use one burner on high and the other on low to achieve this. Use a thermometer when necessary. 125 degrees means medium rare.

Finally, after you remove your steak from the grill, let it rest for about ten minutes before consuming. This allows the fibers to relax and the juices to spread while maintaining the flavor.

Trust me, these steak grilling tips will work for you too! Good Luck and good grilling!
