Grilled Pork Steaks

2 Min Read

If you have never tried grilled pork steaks, you are definitely missing out. This recipe does not have much prep but allow yourself enough cooking time as this recipe does require cooking on indirect heat (which means it will take longer). This is a perfect recipe for a great summer day paired with some vegetable and grilled potatoes.

Aren’t grilled pork steaks and pork chops the same thing?

If you are saying to yourself that this should say “grilled pork chops”, you are very wrong. Pork steaks and pork chops are NOT the same thing. According to “Pork chops are cut from the loin, which is a long, lean muscle that runs along the back of the pig. Pork steaks, on the other hand, are cut from the shoulder. Also referred to as a boston butt or pork butt, the shoulder is a tough, muscular area that is full of flavor.”

When picking your seasoning and sauce, I suggest you consider trying two with a sweeter mix and try two with a spicer mix. It’s a great way to taste the true flavor of the pork steaks. Let us know how you like them!

Servings 4


  • 4 Bone In Pork Steaks 1 per person, I recommend Howe Farms
  • Grill Your Ass Off Infidel Pork Rub or your favorite pork rub
  • Your Favorite Bbq Sauce


  • Season pork steaks on both sides with Infidel Pork Rub and place seasoned pork in fridge for at least an hour
  • Set up grill for indirect cooking at 275-300. I recommend using cherry wood chips for the smoking wood.
  • Once the grill is up to temp, place pork on the indirect side and cook until they reach about 150 internal temp. (Approx 1 hour) The temp is more important than time. There’s no need to flip the pork steaks.
  • When pork reaches 150, remove from grill, cover with foil, and crank heat up on grill to 400 or so.
  • Sear the pork steaks on the direct side of the grill for 1-2 minutes per side.
  • Place pork back on the indirect side and coat both sides with bbq sauce and let cook for 10-15 minutes.
  • Pull the pork off the grill and let rest for 5-10 minutes
  • Enjoy!!
