    At our house the best steak to grill is whatever is on sale that day. Porterhouse is great because it gives you the filet mignon on one side of the bone, and NY strip on the other. Rib eye is very flavorful and tender. Sirloin is also excellent.

    Regardless of the cut, many recipes recommend grilling steak over a direct-medium fire (350°F to 375°F or a 4 second hand count) on a covered grill, and to allow the steaks to stand at room temperature for 20-30 minutes before grilling.

    For grilling times we use the cookout calculator at charcoalbob.com. Enter the cut of meat, thickness and doneness you want. It will give you instructions for how to grill steaks on a charcoal grill so that they all come off at the same time, cooked just the way you want them. It also has grilling tips.

    Also, allow the steaks to rest for 5 minutes after grilling to keep them nice and juicy.

    Ribeye. They are pricey but taste the best. Sprinkle some garlic powder and fresh pepper on them before grilling and you will have a wonderful dinner. If you want them rare cook them for 7 mins on each side.

    its all preference, strip steaks are probably the most flavorful, filets the most tender, ribeyes are a wonderful marriage of tender and delicious, sirloins are cheaper and still delicious, the best of the best is probably the porterhouse because one side is filet mignon and the other side is a new york strip 2 for the price of one.

    In my opinion it's defiantly a ribeye! Ribeyes have such good flavor with lots of fat marbled in. The fat really picks up the charcoal flavor and it's especially good if you like those little burnt edges. Yummmm...So good!!!!

    Porterhouse. Good tip: Grill it frozen, then baste and season as it cooks. It will ensure tenderness and juiciness.

    rib eye, marinate in worcestershire with a table spoon of brown sugar.This is a very forgiving steak it won't burn easily, the only down fall is that it does not hold it's temperature very long.
