  • 2 whole porterhouse steaks
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper


  • Cover and season the steak with salt and pepper, making sure to put it on all sides and the edges. Place each steak on the wooden cutting board vertically then insert 3 or 4 skewers starting from the first steak and ending on the second steak, the skewers will be horizontally placed from the first to the second steak to both secure them but you must leave a little space between them. The steaks will stand on their edges without falling.
  • Using a chimney starter, light 8 coals then place all of it on one side of the grill. Add 2 wood chunks on top of the coal. Place the steaks on the other side of the grate that is far away from the coal with tenderloins facing upwards and bones pointing towards the coals.
  • Cover the grill but leave a little space open. While cooking, maintain the temperature from 175 to 200°F (79 to 93°C). Add 8 more coals if needed.
  • Cook until the internal temperature of the steaks register from 110 to 115°F (43 to 46°C) for medium-rare or 120°F (49°C) for medium, this will take about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. 
  • Remove the steaks from the grill and put them in the cutting board.
  • Using your chimney starter, load it full of charcoals then start a fire. When all of the charcoals are lit and covered of gray ashes, put it all on the grill and arrange it on one side. Cover the grill and preheat it for 5 minutes.
  • Clean the grates and brush it with oil.
  • Place the steaks on the hot grill and cover them for 45 seconds. Then, flip the steaks and cook again for another 45 seconds. It will make the steaks charred.
  • Put the steaks in the cutting board then get your BBQ Knife and carve it. Serve and enjoy!
