The Best Way to Sear a Steak:

To get a deep brown char on the meat without overcooking it, the meat must be completely dry. To achieve this, we use a two-pronged approach. First, place steaks on wire rack set in rimmed baking sheet. Rub entire surface of steaks with mixture of 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 2 tablespoons kosher salt. Place steaks, uncovered, in freezer until very firm, about 30 minutes.

Light a large chimney starter filled with charcoal (about 6 quarts) and allow to burn until the coals are partially covered with a thin layer of ash, about 20 minutes. Build a single-level fire by arranging the coals evenly over the bottom of the grill and place the wood chunks directly on the coals, spacing them evenly around the perimeter of the grill. Set the cooking grate in place, cover, and heat the grate until hot, about 5 minutes. Use a grill brush to scrape the cooking grate clean. Dip a wad of paper towels in vegetable oil; holding the wad with tongs, oil the cooking grate.

How to Cook Steak:

Season the steaks with black pepper. Place the steaks on the grill, cover, and cook until the steaks begin to char, 2 to 3 minutes. Uncover the grill, flip the steaks, and cook on the second side until beginning to char, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip again and cook the first side until well charred, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip one last time and continue to cook until the second side is well charred and the center of the steak registers 115 degrees for rare (about 2 minutes) or 120 degrees for medium-rare (about 4 minutes) on an instant-read thermometer. Transfer to a large plate and let rest, loosely tented with foil, for 10 minutes. Slice and serve.
