There are dozens of ways to cook a steak. Pan seared, oven baked, grilled—you name it! One popular method is the searing method, which creates delicious, charcoal-flavored steaks that are hard to beat.

But what if we told you that there’s a way to enhance your sears? Reverse searing is a nonconventional searing method that many grillers don't know about. But it has numerous benefits that make it worth a try.

Want to learn more? Here's what you need to know about reverse searing plus some of our top reasons to cook your steak using the reverse sear method.

What's Reverse Searing?

Traditional searing involves tossing your meat on the grill immediately after thawing and seasoning. The difference between traditional searing and reverse searing? Just one small step! Instead of tossing your steaks on the grill posthaste, the reverse sear method recommends you heat them in a moderately warm (275° F) oven or on a smoker or charcoal grill before searing.

We recommend using reverse searing if you want to achieve something you can't do with the Schwank Grill alone. If you want a rich, charcoal flavor or are cooking low-and-slow food items, reverse sear before transferring your food to the grill.

What Makes It So Great?

Reverse searing is a quick, simple way to give your food an earthy charcoal flavor and get tender, juicy steak. While it's a limited use technique, it can greatly enhance the look, flavor, and aroma of your food in those limited situations.

Why Use the Schwank Grill for Reverse Searing?
