Reverse-Seared New York Strip Steaks

Reverse-Seared New York Strip Steaks

The reverse sear method infuses steaks with smoky wood-fired flavor without overcooking. You get a nice crust while keeping the meat tender and juicy. Best of all, the technique is foolproof with the help of a wireless probe thermometer to monitor internal temperature, seasonings, and the right wood pellets. Gather your ingredients and get ready to reverse-sear New York strip steaks.

  • Pat the steaks dry with paper towels and leave them out to come to room temperature.
  • In a small bowl, combine the salt, sugar, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and cayenne.
  • Preheat your Z-Grills (preferably with branded apple or cherry wood pellets) or other wood pellet grill to 180 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Brush both sides of each steak with oil, then season.
  • Insert the thermometer probe into a steak and transfer both steaks to the grill grates.
  • Close the lid and smoke for 1 hour or until the internal temperature reaches 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Remove the steaks from the grill, remove the probe, and increase the grill temperature to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Reinsert the probe, return the steaks to the grill, and sear for 3-4 minutes per side. The internal temperature should be 130-135 degrees Fahrenheit for medium rare.
  • Remove the steaks from the grill and rest for 10 minutes.
  • Slice and serve each reverse sear New York strip steak.


Cook steaks to 140 degrees Fahrenheit for medium, 150 degrees for medium well, and 160 degrees for well done.
