  1. Brush steak with extra-virgin olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper and press on the herbs. Bring to room temperature.

  3. Moisten newspaper with vegetable oil. Wad up and place under charcoal compartment. Light and wait 15 minutes.
  4. Once coals have heated, spread out evenly in the bottom of a grill. Toss in mesquite chips.
  5. Grill steak over the hottest part of the grill for 1 ½ minutes. Rotate 90° and cook for another 1 ½ minutes. Flip and repeat this process on the other side.
  6. Move steak to a cooler part of the grill and cook, turning often, until desired doneness (140°F for medium rare, 155°F for medium, 165°F for toast).
  7. Remove and let rest for 7 minutes.
