D-Rex NY Strips

1.5 Inch Cut Prime NY Strips
Olive Oil
Steak Rub- 1 part Kosher Salt, 1 part Jess Hall's Seasoned Pepper, 2 parts Brown Sugar

Heat your grilling surface to the hottest temperature possible. I usually get my green egg to about 650-700 degrees.

Rub steaks thoroughly with olive oil

Then apply generous amounts of the steak rub covering both sides of the meat.
I usually put the rub on about 5-10 minutes prior to cooking. Since the rub has salt you don't want to have it on the steak for too long as the salt starts the cooking process.

Sear the steaks with an open flame for 1-2 minutes per side. At 700 degrees its usually about 90 seconds a side. The brown sugar will cause the steaks to stick a little to your grill so be sure after about 30 seconds to move the steaks a little with your spatula or tongs to prevent sticking.

After searing both sides wrap completely in foil and let them rest for 20 mins. During the rest period reduce your grill temp to 400-450.

Once done resting the steaks unwrap in foil and place them back on the grill to finish them out. At 400 degrees this usually equates to about 4 mins per side. It is important that you repeat the sticking prevention process again each time you flip the steak. After cooking to desired temperature remove from grill and let rest for 5 mins then serve. I usually go by the feel of the steak to determine if its medium rare, etc.

I have included some pics during the cooking process
