    I am a novice griller. However, I love to grill steaks on the propane grill. Does anyone have any ideas for some good marinades?

    Yes...Don't marinate.
    Use a dry rub instead, marinating takes the natural juices away from the
    steak. I HIGHLY reccomend Uncle Chris' Steak Seasoning. Click here.
    Hard to find sometimes but worth ordering online.
    Always allow meat to cook on it's own when grilling.
    NEVER NEVER NEVER poke, smash, cut, or mess with the meat.
    Only exception is if you HAVE to use a meat thermometer to know when it
    has reached desired wellness (or lack thereof). Still try to keep it minimal.
    When finished cooking allow the meat to "rest" for 1-2 minutes (2 max).
    This will allow the meat to lock in the juices and flavor.

    Depends on the steak, Jeff. A GOOD steak should be left alone for the most part, sadly it's hard to come by a good steak these days for a reasonable price IMO. So, many times I use a mix of Soy sauce an Worcestershire sauce. Zip-lock it for at least a few hours (overnight is okay). Great for thick pork chops too.

    Already cooked some up on Tuesday... I'm just talking in general.

    Joker, I've never even heard of a dry rub... interesting.

    I would have never thought to use soy sauce. Sounds good! :thup:

    It is great..adjust the ratio for taste..I use 1 1/2:1 Soy to Worcestershire.
    It's fantastic on 1" or thicker chops..Overnight for them for sure.

    Careful with salt.
    The brand I reccomneded is a good blend, and you can add whatever it
    doesn't have that you like.

    on the dry rub for steaks...I use Garlic salt,fresh ground pepper.sage and parsley...wait until the grill is hot(before placing the steak on the grill) so the juice is sealed in the meat...turn over to seal the other side then let them alone until cooked the proper amount of time...seven minutes on both sides for medium...adjust from there!

    I'm with Mr.P on the chops...tried his receipe and they were great!

    A few pinches of Kosher or Sea Salt on each side, fresh ground Pepper too, and grill :) That's the only dry I use.


    Make SURE you use kosher for all cooking. :)
