Steaks on the Grill

What are some good steaks to throw onto the grill? Something with a good meaty flavor that would be enhanced by grilling them. Or does it even matter all that much?

        ribeye worked great. thanks for all the helpful advice

      2. If meaty flavour's what you're after, avoid fillet.

        Rib eyes are classic. T-bones and strip steaks can be great. Flank and hanger are among the meatiest.

        1. T-Bone (or Porterhouse) and skirt.

          1. Agree with the above....Another one....Top Sirloin!

            1. Yep; bone in ribeye. Ribeye has the most flavor because it has the most fat. Bone in makes it even more flavorful and juicy. I usually open up the ribeye and cut out the huge threads of fat and the big quarter-sized blob, and put them back together with skewers, season with kosher salt and coarse pepper, and grill. They have enough fat/marbling without those big veins of fat, and it keeps flareups down. Best of all, they are almost impossible to mess up. If you overcook a little, they are still great; not like a strip or God forbid, a filet. People eat filet for the tenderness, not the flavor, for they have none.
