So many options, and they are all downright delicious! But how do you decide what to grill for a holiday so worthy of grill mastery? And what else goes into choosing the perfect cuts for the occasion? We break it down to give you some ideas and hopefully set you off on the right path.

Feeding a Large Family

You’ve got a lot of mouths to feed, and they span from kids to grandparents with varying tastes. What should you grill?

  • Steak burgers – They are filling, less expensive than steak, and can be dressed up or down however the eater likes. The burger connoisseur can go bacon, pickled onions, blue cheese or aged cheddar. The purist can go American cheese, pickle, tomato. The kids can go plain. The world is your burger. Our Mr. Steak craft steak burgers are epically juicy and flavorful. You can go 1/3 lb or 1/2 lb. depending on how beefy you’re feeling.
  • Flat Iron Steaks – Ah the flat Iron. It’s incredibly marbled, easy to grill and its versatility is unmatched. Slice it up in fajitas, marinate it, make steak and veggie kabobs, slice it up and serve it with fries and salad… Our burgers and flat iron steaks can also be found paired in our Base Camp Box.
  • Porterhouse Steak – This is one big, bold steak you’ll never forget. Grill it and slice it up family style. Our porterhouse steaks come in 24oz and 40oz sizes. Go big or go home!

For The Grill Master

  • Kansas City Steak – This specialty cut is one you’ve probably never tried. It’s a bone-in NY Strip and the extra flavor you get from that bone will put you and your fellow barbecuers over the edge.
  • Bone-in Ribeye – The classic steak that is a crowd pleaser across America. You really can’t go wrong with it, so if you’re on the fence about what to grill, go for the bone-in ribeye. The flavor, tenderness and meat to fat ratio can’t be beat.
  • Cowboy Steak – The ultimate in decadence, flavor and experience. Throw this baby on the grill and every head will turn. Our cowboy steak has an absurd amount of marbling and also higher fat content than other steaks, giving it a melt in your mouth experience every time.
  • Snag our Monster Cuts Box for an expert level pack of Kansas City Strips, Cowboys, and Porterhouse.
You’ve picked your cuts, now how do you grill the perfect steak?

Meat Grades: Prime vs Choice

The USDA determines this primarily based on marbling, but there are two factors they use to do this: quality grades for tenderness, juiciness, and flavor; and yield grades for the amount of usable lean meat on the carcass.

Prime beef is produced from young, well-fed beef cattle. It has abundant marbling (the amount of fat interspersed with lean meat), and is generally sold in restaurants and hotels. Prime roasts and steaks are excellent for dry-heat cooking such as broiling, roasting, or grilling.

Choice beef is high quality but has less marbling than Prime. Choice roasts and steaks from the loin and rib will be very tender, juicy, and flavorful and are suited for dry-heat cooking. Many of the less tender cuts can also be cooked with dry heat if not overcooked. Such cuts will be most tender if braised, roasted or simmered with a small amount of liquid in a tightly covered pan.
