  • Filled Z Grills 1000 series grill with cherry Bear Mountain BBQ pellets and set the temp to 350 °F while I got the 3 flat iron steaks ready. The Z Grills pellet grill is a versatile beast that is easy to use.
  • Used a little bit of a mix of coffee and beer BBQ sauce as a binder.
  • Then used Heath Riles Pecan and Beef rubs on both sides of the steaks.
  • Let the rubs sink in the steaks until the steaks started sweating because of the salt in the rubs.
  • Placed the 3 steaks on the middle cooking grate. Let the steaks cook for 6 minutes on both sides of steaks.
  • Started striking the steaks with the coffee/beer BBQ sauce on both sides of the steaks and let the glaze caramelize for 4 minutes.

Keep temp at 350 °F except when first turned on the machine and keep it on smoke setting for 5 minutes.
