Say Goodbye Grilling Season With The Ultimate Steak

Grilling is what we do from Memorial Day to Labor Day.  And who doesn’t love a great smoky steak hot off the grill? But fall has arrived, and a number of grill masters close the lid for the season and wait until spring. But here is a treat, say goodby grilling season with the ultimate steak!

I’m a Texan with rancher roots, who comes with a lot of experience in the grilling arena. But I have also learned tricks from the best chefs over the years. All experience combined, here is my favorite way to get my beef on.


  • 1 Tbsp mustard
  • 2 Tbsp dried Herbs de Provence or Thyme
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp fresh cracked black pepper
  • 4 fillet mignon steaks


  • Put the mustard, thyme, sugar, salt and pepper in a small bowl and mix to combine. Rub the mixture over the steaks and set aside for 30 minutes to marinate.
  • Preheat barbecue to medium heat.
  • Grilling time: For a 1-inch cut, grill 10 to 12 minutes for medium rare (145 degrees F) or 12 to 15 minutes for medium (160 degrees F).
  • Slice and serve with your favorite side. We like a bit of sauteed greens.  Top with extra salt and cannabutter if desired!  
  • Serves 4.

A few fun facts to chat about while you grill.  79 million Canadian and American grill or eat from a grill during the summer.  Over 5.5% grill every week.
