How To Smoke a Ribeye Steak on The Smokey Joe Gold

This is a very easy cook, perfect for your next adventure, family outing, or other instance when you only have a small portable pit available. The preparation needed is minimum, and the result is mouth watering.

One thing you might want to do beforehand, is leave the steak in your fridge overnight. This will allow it to absorb some of its juices.

About 2-3 hours before cooking, season the steak liberally with sea (or Kosher) salt and ground black pepper. Use fresh pepper if you have access to it in your area. You could apply other spices too, but this beefy cut of meat already has all the flavor you’ll need! Allow the meat to sweat through the rub for a few hours.

Time to fire up the grill! The Weber Smokey Joe Gold is a very small kettle grill, therefore you don’t need to use a chimney to start the fire. Simply load it up with sufficient charcoal or pellets, and use a Weber fire starter pellet to get it going. You could also use a blowtorch to light a few coals in the middle of the pile.

Get the grill as hot as possible. This is important -because of the Smokey Joe’s compact size, it might be tricky to maintain high temperatures.

Once it is ready, throw the steak over direct heat. Sear for 3-4 minutes per side, checking internal temperature using a thermometer probe. When done, allow the beef to cool off for 5-10 minutes at room temperature before eating.
