Top 5 tips for perfect grilling
1.    Clean and pre-heat grill on high.

2.    Lightly oil and season everything before you put it on the grill. This helps the searing process and prevents sticking.

3.    Sear the outside of steaks when grilling, using tongs or a spatula to turn the meat, and cover the grill as much as possible during the grilling
   process to help lock in the great flavor and to prevent flare-ups.

4.    Use the 60/40 grilling method. Grill for 60 per­cent of the time on the first side, then grill 40 percent of the time after you turn over the food. This will give you an evenly cooked steak.

5.    Place your cooked steak on a clean plate and allow to rest for five minutes before serving to retain moisture and juiciness.
