When it comes to heat levels, this means 190°C to 230°C (375°F to 450°F). Sure, higher fires can be a friend to beef steaks, but generally, stay in the medium range and adjust the heat as needed. If you’re using gas, monitor the dial. Over charcoal, move the food closer to or away from the hottest coals. Don’t forget about the upper rack; it’s handy for keeping food warm without overcooking it.
