Since the beginning of time, man hunted for meat, man started a fire, and man put meat on fire, caveman-style. Yes, you can cook a steak by putting it directly on the coals. It’s primitive, it’s delicious, it’s centuries old… and it isn’t for the faint of heart. If you’re ready for big, bold smoky flavor and plenty of showmanship, try caveman-style steak cooking.
Cooking caveman-style means you need a caveman-sized steak. T-bones or porterhouses, Tomahawk ribeye steaks, or giant Omaha Steaks KING CUT steaks are the best bet. Look for something over 1.5 lbs. and cut quite thick for best results.
