1) Prep Your Steak

Start by generously shaking your steak rub all over your meat. This is what's going to give your steak flavour and great taste in the crust. Let that sit whilst your then prep the grill.

2) Fire Up Your BBQ

With the Kamado grill you can use charcoal, Binchotan lump wood charcoal. 

To light the charcoals, there are various brands of firelighters that you can light and place underneath the charcoals - shut the lid down and that will slowly light your outdoor grill.

Alternatively, for a faster method of lighting your outdoor BBQ, you can use the Mono-lighter Electric Fire Starter. Plug it in, point it at the charcoal for roughly 60 seconds and it will heat them up quicker then any firelighter. Close the lid to allow the BBQ to get up to temperature and you're good to go!

3) Bring Your BBQ Up To The Desired Temperature

You'll want to ensure that your Kamado grill is brought up to the desired cooking temperature. To do this, simply open the Daisy wheel at the top of the oven to about 2 inches wide. You'll then need to do the same for the vent at the bottom of the grill, opening the vent about 2 inches wide. Leave the BBQ to gradually heat up the correct temperature. You're aiming to get it between 100/120 degrees centigrade (220/250 degrees fahrenheit).

4) Cooking

Close both vents on your ceramic grill to allow a 1cm gap as this will prevent the BBQ to get any hotter. Place your MEATER Plus Thermometer into the thickest part of the steak. This will tell you the core temperature of the steak along with the temperature inside the kamado egg bbq. Before placing the steak onto the grill, continue to set up the Meater Thermometer with the app on your smart phone. Place in the BBQ for roughly 1 hour. This will allow our steak to cook to medium rare

After an hour, remove the steak from the heat and let it rest on a board. You will then want to turn up the heat on your BBQ. Remove the grill from the BBQ so you have easy access to the coals and we're going to sear the steak dirty on the coals to get a fabulous crust which gives it immense flavour. Before placing the steak on the coals, blow any ash off the coal and simply place the steak on the coals. Cook for 30 seconds either side and serve.

Your friends and family will think you are a BBQ God cooking on this ceramic BBQ!
