RE: Seasoning steaks - gospel or heresy
Sometimes I like to marinate my steaks overnight before I grill them.I also do the indirect heat thing with the coals on one side.I'll take a skillet and sear the steak on both sides on the coals,take it off,saute some onions,mushrooms,garlic,tomatoes etc and let it finish on the "coalless" side.A delight! Next: stuffed grilled shrimp!

RE: Seasoning steaks - gospel or heresy
I forgot to add, one of my favorite seasonings for steak is McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Steak seasoning.
Its a nice flavor combonation, and you should be able to find it in any supermarket, so you don't have to make a special trip to find it.
A word to the wise, it has quite a bit of salt, so use it with a gentle hand.....

Yep, HardwareGrl - I'll second that! Montreal Steak seasoning is my seasoning of choice for steaks as well. Also agree with your advice to use sparingly - a little goes a long way.

I like something called "Perfect Pinch Steak" by McCormick. It also has a lot of salt, but gives steak (and chicken) a good flavor. There's no MSG in it either.

RE: Seasoning steaks - gospel or heresy
Someone mentioned that the better the cut of meat the less need for spices. Most often that's a good rule of thumb, though often I wonder about diners at a good establishment ordering a med-rare prime rib and then smother it with horseradish.

As for me, usually it's just some salt and pepper for a good quality cut. Not much, just a light pinch to give the meat some extra depth. While I do like the Montreal-style spice, sometimes I find it's a bit too salty for my liking.

Oh, I don't know OHR, I've had some Prime Rib that really needed the horseradish, to cover up the sh*tty roasting job someone did...Confused

Sometimes we'll use Chicago Steak Seasoning or the English Prime Rib Rub from Penzeys Spices.
