Grilling Thick Steaks – The Reverse Sear
Use this reverse sear method to grill 2-inch thick steaks slowly over low indirect heat, then crank up the temperature to get a great crust.
Season steak generously with salt and black pepper on both sides.
Place wood chips in the smoker box of your gas grill according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Preheat one side of the grill to about 250 degrees F (121 degrees C).
Place steak on the cool side of the grill.
Cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads about 100 degrees F (37 degrees C) 25 to 30 minutes.
Transfer steak to a plate.
Brush with olive oil and cover with aluminum foil.
Increase heat on the grill to 600 degrees F (315 degrees C) by turning both burners up to maximum.
