Ever wonder why steaks look so much better on TV?

For some reason that diamond shaped stamp of caramelization equals the true sign of a perfect steak.

Any BBQ cook should know the secret to professional presentation GRILL MARKS. Gotta have ’em. It’s mainly a matter of paying attention from the start.

  1. First, crank up the heat like you would on direct heat grilling. Heat Helps.
  2. Immediately clean the grill grates and oil with a wet (with oil) napkin.
  3. Place the meat on the grill in the same direction so you’ll mark them the same. Once you set it down — LEAVE IT ALONE – until:
  4. After one fourth the cooking time simply rotate the piece either 45 degrees (for diamond) or 90 (for squares).
  5. At the halfway point… flip and repeat from step three.
  6. One side typically looks better than the other. Put that side up.
