Hello My name is Patrick,

I am from California and I am an inexperienced BBQ'er... It seems almost anytime I try to cook red meat I burn the outside but the middle is still bloody. I joined this forums in hope to gain some knowledge in the area's of the actual BBQing what meat to choose, how to prepare it and enjoy it.

I have a webber charcoal grill, its about 3 months old. I use to have a charbroil gas grill but I truly hated it. I have been using Kingsford Charcoal since I bought the grill, I have had great success with Chicken but anytime I try to cook a steak or tri tip I ruin it... I pretty much know zero about grilling so any input would be greatly appreciated by me, my wife and my daughter lol.

Hello and Welcome! If your steaks are blackened on the outside and the interior is raw, your cooking over too hot a fire. Hang around awhile and you will be an expert!

Ask as many questions as you like. Dont feel like anyone is telling you not to ask. We were all new once and we have all burned the heck out of many a meal....in or out of a grill.

Now a quick answer to your question....build a smaller fire and only put the meat directly over it to sear it, then move it away so it will cook through a tad slower.
And to get some smoke flavor too i throw on some wood chunks.
