There’s one thing every home cook knows to be true: Whenever you try to cook a steak at home, it never tastes as good as the ones you get at a restaurant. But you follow the recipe to a tee every single time… so what gives? According to Perry Steakhouse & Grille’s Corporate Chef Grant Hunter, it might not be how you’re cooking it but what you’re using, instead. The Texas native shares what he considers the essential grilling tools. Check them out and then try these great steak recipes.
Aluminum foil and wire grill brush
According to Hunter, you need to start with a clean grill every single time. To clean your grill quickly and easily, he says to place foil across the grate shiny side down. Let this heat up for 10 minutes. You’ll find that extra grease from your last grilling session has burned away. Remove the foil and then give it a good clean with your wire grill brush.
