One of the best parts about spring (other than the beautiful weather, of course) is dusting off the grill and cooking up delicious mouth-watering meals outdoors. BBQ’s are the single most popular way to prepare a meal in the spring and summer months and there are many reasons why. Not only is it a no-fuss way to whip up a meal but the food you cook on the grill tastes delicious every time.

The rib steak is called the King of Steaks for very good reason. A rib steak with the bone-in has just the right amount of marbling (fatty streaks throughout the meat) to keep it juicy and full-flavored from the grill to your plate. It’s from the short loin next to the rib so it’s also a very tender cut of meat. Ask your butcher to cut you a rib steak (bone-in) at least 1″ thick. A very light rub with olive oil, crushed black pepper and kosher salt and it’s ready for the grill.
