Charcoal Chimney Starter Grilled Steaks

I am digging the old school approach to prepping meat and think it goes to prove that it really doesn’t take much to grill a great steak.

Charcoal chimney starter grilled steaks were some of the best I have had in a long time. Lucky for me, it’s just the start of grilling season.

For this one, I used the tools  I had, and a lot of inspiration from Alton Brown, to grill one of the best strip steaks I have had in a really long time.

To make Charcoal Chimney Starter Grilled Steaks all you need is a few really good steaks and a safe, clean cooking area.

I used the rack of in my Kettleman grill. Then I heated charcoal in my starter until covered in ashes.

After liberally seasoning the steaks with salt, I placed them under where the chimney starter had been sitting, on a nice hot grate, and put the starter back on top of it.

I cooked them for about 2 or 3 minutes there before removing the chimney and pulling the steaks to a cooler area of the grill.
