All ribeye steaks are not created equal~ Did you know that a certain cut of ribeye steak is the most coveted steak you can buy? We are going to blow your mind when we show you the differences and why you want to always pick this particular cut. Once we cover that, we are going to take you on a steak journey like never before. We’ll show you the proper way to trim to build maximum flavor. Then comes the rubs, not just some ordinary rubs, but layers of rubs that were developed by World Champion Steak Grillmasters. Next, you will learn how to set up the grill and put those beautiful diamond marks on it. When you bite into this steak, you will then realize those layers of flavor we created... just became a harmonious explosion in your mouth. Yeah, it’s that good!

There are ribs and then there are ribs that will send your taste buds to a place they have never been before. Our competition St. Louis Pork Ribs has made us a lot of money on the circuit. We wow the judges by giving them a little savory, little heat, a touch of sweet, and just the right amount of smoke. You will learn all the details from trim to taste on how to cook the best ribs you have ever had!
