Grilled Peppered Steak (4-2-1-1 Rub)

Are you ready for the best steak you have ever sunk your teeth into?  Here it is!  My husband has a new found love for grilling since he got his Kamado style grill about a year ago.  He came up with this simple yet deliciuos steak rub all on his own!  These were seriously the best steaks I have EVER eaten.  This is saying something.  Pre-kids, we enjoyed steaks at some of the finest steakhouses all over the country!  We really do know our steak!   

My husband has now dubbed this rub his 4-2-1-1 rub!  It has an official name now.


Grilled Peppered Steak

2 pounds filet steaks (about 6)
4 t black pepper
2 t salt
1 t garlic powder
1 t turbinado sugar
6 slices of thick cut bacon

Wrap each a slice of bacon around the sides of each steak and secure with a toothpick.  Mix pepper, salt, garlic powder and sugar in a bowl.  Rub the spice mixture generously on both exposed sides of the steak.  Set the steaks out for about 30-45 minutes or until they warm to room temperature.  Grill to your desired doneness.  

Kamado style grill cooking instructions:
We have a kamado style smoker and convection grill.  These aren’t extremely common.  But if you do have one, this is how we cooked it.  Set the dome temperature to 650 oF.  Sear 5 minutes on each side (with the vents open).  Then flip the steak one more time and cook 3 additional minutes (with the vents closed).  Be careful when you open the grill after the vents have been closed!  Wear hand protection and crack a little bit to release the steam before opening all of the way.  The steam will burn you!  Let the steaks sit out about 5 minutes before serving.  These instructions will get you best filet you have ever eaten, cooked medium!
