Using a charcoal grill can seem very scary…there’s no knob to control the heat! (there kind of is) You have vents and on mine a chimney at the top. Wide open, will increase the heat. As you close the vent and chimney it will decrease the amount of oxygen getting into the gill causing the coals to cool. Grilling a steak is pretty straight forward, timed sides and timed on indirect heat. it will vary depending on cut and thickness but typically you won’t have the steak on there for several hours or anything like that. I’d say 29 minutes tops!
