2 whole T-bone steaks, at least 1 1/2 inches thick

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


At least 45 minutes before cooking, season steaks generously with salt and pepper on all sides, including edges. Set steaks on a wire rack set over a rimmed baking sheet and refrigerate, uncovered, until ready to cook. Alternatively, season steaks immediately before placing on hot grill. Light 1 chimney full of charcoal. When all charcoal is lit and covered with gray ash, pour out and spread coals evenly over half of coal grate. Alternatively, set half the burners of a gas grill to high heat. Set cooking grate in place, cover grill, and allow to preheat for 5 minutes. Clean and oil grilling grate. Arrange steaks on cooler side of grill with tenderloins positioned farthest from the coals. Cover and set top and bottom vents to half-closed position. Cook steaks, turning once , until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the coolest part of the strip registers 115 degrees F/46 degrees C and the tenderloin registers 110 degrees F/43 degrees C for medium-rare, about 15 minutes. Cooking times can vary drastically depending on the heat of the grill, so begin checking after 10 minutes. If coals are not blazing-hot at this point, add more to the fire and allow fire to become hot again. Transfer steaks directly over coals and cook, turning, until very well seared on both sides. Using tongs, hold steaks on their edges to sear the sides as well. Let rest 10 minutes, then serve.
