Ribeye Steaks on A Pellet Grill

Ribeye is a staple when it comes to steaks, full of marbling and flavor! For this cook we really wanted to showcase the versatility of a pellet grill and the processes I use to sear a steak a on pellet grill.

This recipe is brought to us by Mark Williams and Swine Life BBQ.

Stone Ground Mustard Butter

  • 1 Stick of Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon of Black Pepper
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon of Stone Ground Mustard
  • Juice of 1/2 Lemon
  • Rosemary

Ribeye steaks

  • Your choice of steak seasoning


To start we took a couple of choice grade ribeyes. Season them to your liking and let them rest on the counter for about an hour.

Then we fired up the pellet grill. You will definitely need a set of Grill Grates to really get the full potential of your pellet grill. Now, of course, you can try this recipe on any grill with great results. The Grilla Grills Silverbac can easily do this with the temp set at 485 degrees.

While the grill is coming up to temp I made the “Stone Ground Mustard Butter”. Take a small saucepan and combine the mustard, butter, pepper, and lemon juice.

Simmer the ingredients for 1 minute. Place the leaves of 2 stems of Rosemary in a strainer and pour the hot butter over the Rosemary.

The cook is pretty straight forward. You are going to place the steaks on those Grill Grates for 2 minutes. Give them a twist for those perfect marks. After another 2 minutes its time to flip. Go another 2 minutes and twist again. That’s when I like to start checking the temp. I was shooting for 125-127 for that perfect Medium Rare. Of course, you can adjust your finish temp to your liking.

 TIP: If you have thicker steaks that aren’t getting done in a total of 8 minutes, place them on a raised rack or your top shelf to get them off of the Grill Grates. This will keep from burning the one side waiting on them to get done. Plus raising the steak to a higher rack will allow the steak to cook more evenly.

Once the steaks are done let them rest. While resting, drizzle the Stone Ground Mustard Butter over them. This butter has an awesome flavor and goes great with any cut of beef. You will not be disappointed!! After a few minutes rest, its time to EAT!!

Tips for Grilling a Juicy Ribeye Steak

As you learn how to cook a ribeye steak to absolute perfection, keep these hints in mind:

  • Clean your smoker grill before tossing those steaks on the grates. A clean smoker promises a fantastic result.
  • Hold back from throwing your ribeye on the grill before you reach prime-time temperature. Have a little patience. The wait will be worth it.
