How to Grill The Perfect Cowboy Steak
Servings: 1 -4
Making authentic cowboy steaks is really easy. When I asked Bryan Keith, the Grill Master from Tucson's famed Pinnacle Peak Steak House if he had any additional tips he said, "Put some love in it!" 


  • 1 20- ounce T-bone from the short loin leave all of the fat on (for flavor)
  • Season generously on both sides with garlic salt


  • For the Very Hot Fire
  • Use mesquite wood or mesquite charcoal
  • Burn down the fire until the coal from the mesquite is red-hot.
  • Grill the steaks 6-8 inches from the coals for 3-5 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Enjoy!
