For the Baste:
Combine all ingredients in a foil pan or heatproof pan and warm on the side of the grill.
For the Board Dressing:
Combine all ingredients. This creates extra flavor on your cutting board.
1. Generously season the steaks with salt and pepper. Press in the seasoning, and dab the meat onto the board to collect any excess.
2. Glisten the meat with canola oil, using the first steak to brush oil onto the others.
3. Direct Grilling: Preheat the BBQ to medium-high. Put the meat on the well-oiled grill and cook until medium-rare (or cook to desired doneness).
4. Baste regularly, stacking and/ or flipping the meat if the flames get out of control.
5. When the steaks are nicely caramelized and charred on both sides, approximately
15 to 25 minutes total, they are done. (You can check the temp with an instant-read thermometer if that is more comfortable; the steaks should register 125°F).
6. Let the steaks rest for 2 minutes, then pour the board dressing onto a cutting board and slice the steaks, turning to coat the slices.
