My first grill! - help me grill a steak properly...

HB_Jeff | Feb 15, 2011 06:43 AM

Hello,

I am getting my first grill this week! It will be a gas grill.

My first quest will be to grill a good steak for my wife and I. We prefer rib-eyes.

Can you provide me with the basic guidelines to grill a good rib-eye (medium rare)?

At what heat level (medium, medium / high, etc.)?

How many minutes a side for medium rare? (I knoe it depends upon the thickness of the steak so this is a ballpark thing I realize - but I want to hear your guidelines).

I know to let the steak rest for 5 minutes before serving.

For a basic steak, is salt and pepper enough? If so, how long in advance should I salt and pepper it?

THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ANY HELP!!!
