Picking The Ultimate Steak For Your Next Barbecue 

Steak is the epitome of luxury when it comes to barbecuing. The mouthwatering textures, smells and tastes are sure to get everyone salivating. But, to make sure you’re getting the most out of your steak, you need to choose carefully when it comes to the cut. 

We’re talking grades of beef,  cuts of steak and marbles so you can grill up the ultimate steak when it comes to your next barbecue session. 

Grades Of Beef 

First of all, let’s talk ‘grades of beef’. Beef is graded so you can assess the quality of the meat before making a purchase. Depending on the grade, you’ll be able to tell how luxurious the meat is going to be and how to best prepare it. 

The amount of marbles in the beef will also be noted within the grade. What is marbling you may be asking? Marbling is the thin striations of fat found within the meat. The amount of marbles in the meat, the tastier it will be. 

Cuts Of Steak 

Much like us, steaks come in all different shapes and sizes. There are ALOT of different cuts of steak on the market, but for now let’s discuss the cuts you’re most likely to come across in your local butchers. 


Bavette steaks are large slabs of steak which can be a cheaper and easier option for feeding a few people at once. Make sure your grill is preheated to be very hot so you get those nice grill marks. Cook the meat fast and no further than medium-rare. Bavette steak is a very lean cut, so it can end up a bit tough if it’s over-cooked.


Sirloin steaks are probably the easiest of the more popular cuts to grill and are perfect if you want to treat guests to their own steak. They’re pretty easy to come buy and usually inexpensive compared to their competitors. This cut has a medium level of tenderness but a lot of marbling - which of course equates to more taste. 


Ribeye steaks can be one of the more pricier cuts - but for good reason. Ribeye steaks contain an impressive amount of marbling which makes them one the most delicious steaks to grill. A little bigger than a fillet but in the same class as one of the top steaks available, this makes for a perfect meal on a special occasion. These steaks can be cooked almost effortlessly on a grill as they’re even tender and tasty when accidentally overcooked. 


Arguably one of the most supreme cuts of steak out there, a T-Bone is sure to have even the strictest vegetarians salivating. This T-Bone can be quite expensive and tricky to cook as you have two different cuts of steak - divided by the bone. But don’t be put off by the price and the skill that's needed to take on this cut, a freshly grilled T-Bone is worth all culinary efforts and £’s. 

So there you have it, our favourite cuts of steak, perfect for cooking on a smoking hot grill whatever the season or occasion. What’s your favourite cut of steak? Let us know on Instagram or Facebook!
