In this Reverse Seared Ribeye Recipe, we will teach you how to cook ribeye steak on the grill that is reverse seared using the cold grate technique. This grilled steak Recipe is one that is simple to do and will be perfectly cooked both the inside and outsides! We made these on the Weber Kettle Grill the Slow ‘N Sear, but you can also do this on any grill using the indirect cooking method. Everything you need to know is below.

ITEMS USED – (Recipe Below)

Weber Kettle (classic) (USA) (CDN)

Slow N Sear Plus (for 22’’ Kettle Grills)






Napoleon Professional 5 Piece tool set (USA) (CDN)

Hanzo 9.5 Chef Knife


– 2’’ Thick Ribeye (this is the best thickness for a reverse sear)
– ½ tsp salt per/lb of steak
– Fresh cracked Pepper
– Olive oil


Step #1
To Start off, place your meat on a rack and salt both sides using ½ tsp kosher salt for every lb of meat. Once it has been salted place them in the fridge uncovered overnight. The next day pull them out of the fridge just before getting your grill set up for cooking indirect at 225F. To do this place about 25 briquettes into the corner of the Slow ‘N Sear and let it come up to temperature.

Step #2
Once the grill is up to temperature, place the Ribeyes onto the grill opposite the coals. Next, place a digital thermometer into the middle section of the ribeye to help monitor the temperature as it cooks. Close the lid and begin cooking at 225F. After a bit of time, your Ribeye Steaks will be at 80F, at this point open the grill and quickly flip the steaks. Close the lid again and cook until the ribeyes reach an internal temperature of 115F.

Step #3
With the steaks at 115F, remove them from the grill and dry the outside surface entirely with a paper towel. This will help it sear faster. Next, apply a light coating of oil to the outside as well as fresh cracked pepper. Once the steaks are prepared, add in a fully lit chimney of briquettes into the Slow ‘N Sear and begin searing using the Cold Grate Technique. To do this place the steaks over the direct heat to begin the searing process. After each minute spin the grate and flip the steaks back over onto the direct coals. With a 2 inch Ribeye, you will be searing 1 minute on each side twice to achieve wall to wall medium rare.

That’s it, enjoy.

    And don't forget, kids… after you're done grilling ANY meat, make sure you put it to bed for 5-20 minutes. People forget the naptime on grilled meats and totally miss out on the wonderfulness.
    Great video as always!
