Need help - Flank Steak

My buddy and his wife are bringing over marinated flank steak for me to prepare on the BGE tonight and i am not sure how to prepare it.  I've made them ribeyes using the T-rex method before and they love it.  Is there a "agreed upon" way to make the flank steak?  Do I sear on orange coals like T-rex and let it rest and finish at 400 degrees with smoke?  Interested to hear your opinions -  I want to make sure I do the BGE community proud!!!

  • I like it!  Do have a rule of thumb for time per side?  I know I will ultimately cook to temp on inside

    It wasn't long, maybe 40 seconds turn, 30 seconds flip and repeat. Use long tongs @-)

    I do a lot of flanks.  I go about 550-600 direct and flip them every 1.5 or 2 minutes.  Usually takes about 7-8 minutes or so to reach 125 internal.
