Pellet Grill Ribeye Steak Recipe

Let’s roll some smoke and get started on how to smoke a steak. When done properly, smoked steak is tender, juicy, and has a perfect smoke flavor. I’ll show you how to make the perfect smoked steak.

To grill a ribeye steak, trim the fat and rub with a neutral oil and seasoning. You can go with simple salt and pepper. Let your Traeger get to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, and place your steaks directly on the grill grate, flipping every 6 minutes. Cook until steaks reach an internal temperature of 132 degrees and enjoy.

  • 2 pounds Ribeye Steak
  • salt & pepper


  1. Preheat your grill over high heat following factory instructions. Let the beef come to room temperature, pat dry with paper towels, and coat with salt and pepper liberally.
  2. Place on the grill and grill for 4-5 minutes per side, depending on how done you like your beef. The best way to tell is to use an instant-read thermometer, such as the Thermopen. (Link below)
  3. Remove from the grill when it reaches 4-5 degrees below your desired level of doneness, and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
  4. Preheat your grill to 225° following factory instructions. Let your beef come to room temperature, pat dry, and then liberally salt and pepper the meat.
  5. Place the meat on your pellet grill and shut the lid. Grill until the center reaches 125° for medium rare, or 130° for medium. With the reverse sear you want to pull them about 5-7° under where you ultimately want them to end up.
  6. Preheat a cast iron skillet on a stove or a flat top grill over high heat. Throw down a little bit of high-smoke-point oil, such as avocado oil.
  7. Place the steak on the pre-heated skillet or flat top and let cook for about 2 minutes per side, or until a crust has formed.
  8. Remove, let rest for 5 minutes, and eat!
