Sure!! First you will need to head to your trusty local butcher and tell him you want pork steaks cut from a bone-in butt.

After that, I fire up the weber kettle with a load of charcoal and hickory chunks and set it all to one side. I start them up doing a reverse sear until 150 IT and then move to direct over the coals to finish. Sauce both sides during the last few minutes and let cook until the sauce sets and gets nice and sticky.

Let rest for 5 or 10 minutes and then serve with some tater salad, baked beans, and your favorite adult beverage.

Christmas morning I had two kettles cooking up a total of 14 pork steaks for dinner later that night. They are great to cook in the morning and then either re-heat or hold in a large roasting pan until serving time. Mmmmmm now you're making me hungry!

St Louis native moved to Little Rock 20 years ago. I'll Q just about anything small enough and slow enough to fit on or in one of my grills/smokers/cookers.... Pork Steak with Maul's (plus some liquid hop additives) is still the family comfort food of choice. When I buy butts for competition I always reserve a couple for pork steaks...

Around here they call those steaks, "Front-shoulder steaks", and yes, they are AWESOME on the BBQ

My homesickness was in check until I saw these pics. So many great childhood memories that include Maul's-smothered porksteaks.

I am loathe to admit it took me 6 years to introduce my wife to these slices of heaven, and only on a trip back home to STL. Needless to say, shes a huge fan now; had never had them before (shes from Vegas). They're a staple in our house now.

As already mentioned, the staple of STL BBQ is the pork steak that is, yes, just a sliced up bone in pork butt.
I smoke full loins and serve with brocolli-rabe and provolone on garlic bread.

Made that at the american royal, except i had to use spinach. Tried to get brocolli rabe from a few stores, including RD, and everyone looked at me like i had 3 heads. Broccoli rabe seems to be a mysteries green in KC.

Never had broc rabe, do you use the rabe fresh or lightly steamed? If steamed, have you ever tried kale? We love kale. People look at my two kids the way they looked at you in KC when they see a 5 and 7 year old eating kale and LOVING IT!

Learned something new today...been to St. Louis lots of times but never noticed the pork steak thing. On the list! Maybe less the Mauls...I may have to try it again though given the drool on my keyboard looking at those pics! I bought a bottle a month or so ago to try it, my initial reaction was it kind of tasted like watered down katsup.

"Bump" for a great thread, and general awesomeness.
Since I discovered the joys of smoking food, I have only fired up the grill for the occasional burger here and there, not even a steak.
But the talk and pictures of pork steaks has got me drooling.

I feel like I'm being called back to my roots of pork steaks and Maulls.

I have pics of all kinds of food, but none of pork steaks. Yum....

I grew up in the St. Louis area, just a little south, and my dad always did pork steaks with Maulls barbecue sauce on the Weber kettle. We still like to grill pork steaks and hit them with the sauce when we can't take the time for smoking the meat.
