How do I reverse sear the perfect steak on the grill?

The perfect steak starts with the perfect cut...ask for meat with a marbled fat distribution and approximately 1" thick. The fat acts as a natural tenderizer while cooking and will keep the meat moist and juicy. Preheat your grill to low, about 300°F. Butter and season your steak with your favorite spices and salt. Insert a digital meat thermometer, like Napoleon's Wireless Meat Thermometer, and place the steak over indirect heat. Cook for 20 to 40 minutes with the lid down, until the meat reaches a temperature of 125°F internally. Remove the steak and allow it to rest for 5 to 15 minutes. While it's resting, preheat your Infrared SIZZLE ZONE™, or preheat your grill to high, about 500°F. Once rested, place the steak over direct heat and sear for a minute. Turn the steak 45° and sear or another minute before flipping. Repeat the sear and turn on the other side of the steak. You may now serve immediately because you have already rested the steak prior to searing. If you're unsure, check out this video for more pointers.
