9: Smoked Ribeye Steak Recipe With Tequila Barbecue Glaze

It was recently brought to my attention that beef and tequila have a relationship. If you have this on your backyard grill the sweet tangy smells will spark the interest of the whole neighborhood. As always when cooking with alcohol, you must sample your tequila before adding it to the glaze.

10: Reverse Sear Smoked Ribeye Steak

Reverse sear.. What the? Essentially this is cooking your beautiful thick cut of your ribeye steak in the oven and then searing it on the grill. This allows for maximum flavor absorption.

This is a great method for special occasions when you have your favorite expensive cut.

You are going to need a smoker and a grill (of cast iron pan) for this recipe.

Move over potato chips (I’m sorry) beef jerky recipe takes top priority in the snack department.

Beef jerky doesn’t need an introduction. We all know how good it is.

What is more impressive on the dinner table than a beef tenderloin? A beef tenderloin gives off a deep smoky flavor.

I can almost guarantee you will have return visitors after cooking this for dinner. Maybe this beef recipe should only be for special occasions only!

As if this list wasn’t going to include a smoked brisket in this round-up of beef recipes. The king of beef. This recipe is best suited to a weekend when you have time. You will appreciate the smell of your brisket smoking away all day as you get through the wife’s ‘to-do list’.

At the end of the day, you won’t even remember all the chores you have done when you finally get that first bite of the tip. Yes, I am that guy who takes the honours of the first try!


13: Grilled Coffee Rubbed Steak

Coffee and steak is a combination that should be more well-known. The aroma is something I can not forget.
