This Memorial Day, New York Prime Beef will really shine on the grill. Here are some tips from Josh Tanner, chef and butcher at New York Prime Beef to study before you light up the charcoal.

1. Take your steak out of the fridge BEFORE you get ready to grill! Allowing it to come up to room temperature and salting your steak ahead of time will yield more consistent cooking and a juicier end product.

2. Get your grill HOT before you start cooking! While you’re waiting on your meat, you should get your grill ready. You want to have a HIGH side and a LOW side. One for searing and one-for evenly cooking. This is easy with propane. With charcoal, you’ll need to spread the hot coals so that one side is a bit higher than the other.

3. Use a thermometer! Investing in an inexpensive thermometer (instant read is nice, but the old fashion dial thermometer works fine) is a guaranteed way to get better results. Remove your steak at 125° F for a perfect medium rare.

4. Be Patient. You spent your hard earned money and time on grilling the perfect steak; don’t ruin it at the end. Allowing your steak to rest 10 minutes before slicing makes a world of difference.
