This week I had my local butcher cut some “Extra-Thick” pork steaks from a fresh Boston Butt. Also known as blade steaks – or pork shoulder blade steaks – Pork Steaks are excellent on the grill and these thick-cut versions are hearty enough for the biggest appetite!
I start out by seasoning each side of the pork steaks with a little Killer Hogs The AP Rub followed by a generous layer of Killer Hogs The BBQ Rub. Just let them hang out on the counter while you get the grill going.
I’m firing up the PK 360 for this cook, but you can use any grill set up the same way. Start with a chimney full of hot charcoal and spread the coals out evenly across the front and back of the grill; add about a chimney of unlit coals down the center. This way the grill will have even heat throughout the whole cook.
You can also add a couple chunks of your favorite wood to the hot coals for some smoke flavor. I use cherry but hickory, pecan, or apple are good choices.
To slow the grilling process down, I use a raised cooking grate. This creates a little distance from the hot coals and allows the steaks longer time in the smoke.
Place the pork steaks on the raised grate and cook them for about 20 minutes then flip and repeat. By this time the outside should start to turn a little dark. Remove them from the grill and wrap.
I use a sheet of aluminum foil with 2 Tablespoons of butter and a good drizzle of honey over the top. Close the foil up tight and get them back on the grill.
This step tenderizes the pork steaks and keeps them from getting too dark. Use a good probe thermometer and monitor the internal temperature. It should be 190-195⁰.
Once temp is reached remove the steaks from the grill (careful because they’re hot) and sit the raised grate to the side. Place a set of grill grates over the hot coals and give it time to get hot.
Carefully unwrap each pork steak and brush the outside with a good sauce. I’m using my new Killer Hogs Vinegar Sauce. Place each pork steak on the grill grates and cook each side about 4 minutes to get a good char on the outside.
They’re done at this point and after a short 5 minute rest, ready to serve. You can really taste the grill flavor and the vinegar sauce goes nice with the richness of the pork.
