I know of many people who will eat no meat except beef. For them the sizzling juices of the meat cooking over hot coals producing the great aroma blending with the scent of smoke appeals to their senses. When cooking steak spread the red hot charcoals over the bottom of the grill firebox. Position the grill rack 4 to 6 inches above the coals and heat for 5 minutes. Use tongs and fat to grease the rack.

Place oiled steaks on the rack. When the red beads of juice appear on the top surface, turn the steaks and season the seared sides. Sear the steaks on the second side until juices rise to the surface again (about 2 minutes). Reduce the heat by moving the meat to the side of the rack, by raising the rack 1 to 2 inches more above the coals. Continue cooking until the steaks are desired doneness. If you are learning how to make a barbeque beef recipe, salt only after searing because the salt will pull out moisture if done before and serve with your best bbq sauce recipe.

When learning how to make a barbeque beef recipe, you will find that the size and shape of cut will dictate the dry heat method that should be used. The intensity of the heat in grilling demands that the meat be cut into small and fairly flat pieces that will cook through fast before it has a chance to burn. In as few as six to eight minutes, they will be seared on the outside but still remain juicy inside. Cubes or chunks of meat packed onto skewers need only fifteen minutes of cooking time. Large or irregularly shaped cuts of meat such as roasts are more suited to indirect grilling after searing. This slow cooking (temperatures at 250F to 300F degrees) by spit roasting or by placing it off to the sides of hot coals or by turning the gas burner on off under the roast, then closing the lid and allowing to cook slowly.

The diversity of cooking temperatures is mirrored in the time each method requires. A steak can be grilled to perfection in as little as 10 to 15 minutes; never grill a steak under one inch thick. When grilling when every minute counts, the initial temperature of the meat is important also. In order to heat quickly and cook evenly the meat should be removed from the refrigerator and allowed to stand at room temperature for an hour or so before starting your barbeque beef recipe. Frozen meats must first be defrosted thoroughly in the refrigerator. This defrosting process requires about five hour for each pound of meat.
