Grilled Thin Steak Recipes

There are a few things to keep in mind in the quest to make the ideal steak if you’re wondering how to cook thin steaks on the Kamado Joe or any charcoal or gas grill.

The ability to cook a thin steak to perfection is more crucial than ever given the rising cost of meat.

The kamado grill is my preferred grill for cooking steaks because it retains heat well and can reach extremely high temperatures.

You don’t necessarily need to cook at that high a temperature, even though my Kamado Joe and other kamado grills like the Big Green Egg can reach temperatures well over 1000 F.
