12-24 hours before cooking, remove your steaks from their packaging and pat dry. Season steaks generously with salt to coat the outside. Place the steaks on a baking sheet with wire rack and transfer to fridge until ready to cook.
An hour before cooking, remove your steaks from the fridge to rest at room
temperature. Season with black pepper as they get to room temperature. Prepare your grill for indirect heat/smoke and set the temperature to 225 degrees. Toss on a couple chunks of cherry wood, or fruited wood.
Once your grill has reached 225 degrees and your steaks are at room temperature, place
them on the grill and cook until 110 degrees.
After your steaks have reached 110 degrees internal temperature, remove them from the grill to a plate and loosely tent with foil. Crank the grill up to high heat and sear each side for 1.5-2 minutes, or until the internal temperature has reached 120 degrees.
Transfer your steaks to the cutting board and top with herb butter to rest for another 5 minutes. Slice each steak against the grain and enjoy!
