How to Cook Steaks on a Pellet Smoker

You may need:

  • Meat thermometer
  • Get some fresh meat. However, before you sear the meat, make sure it is completely dry.
  • Searing rack
  • Chart
  • the bacon press.
  • Grilla beef rub

Steps to follow:

Step 1: Trim and season

  • Trim the steak and season.
  • Apply a light coat of salt, pepper, and garlic on steak.
  • Allow 30 minutes for the meat to rest before smoking.

Step 2: Prepare your grill/smoker

  • Spray oil on the grates.
  • Preheat your grill 180 degrees.

Step 3: Smoke the steak

  • Place the steaks on the smoker’s rack and cook for 20 minutes without flipping.
    If you smoke the steak for too long at low temperatures, it will become dry and tough. 20 minutes will give it a great smoky flavor while also preventing it from drying out.
  • Raise the temperature of the smokers to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Grill for 5-9 minutes per side on high heat.
    How long it takes to cook a steak depends on its thickness. Always cook to temperature rather than time.
  • You can use searing racks.
  • Using an instant read thermometer, check the internal temperature of the smoked steak.
  • Continue to cook until the desired smoked steak temperature is achieved.

Step 4: Let rest the smoked steak

  • Allow 10 minutes for your smoked steak to rest before slicing or eating.
  • Allowing the juices to circulate throughout the meat is important.
