  • 1 1-2 pound skirt steak

Chipotle Seasoning

  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle chilis
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper optional for added heat


  • Preheat your grill to High heat (400-450 degrees F) for direct grilling.
  • Trim any excess fat or silver skin left on the skirt steak (the stuff that runs in between the muscle is fine).
  • Season liberally with the chipotle seasoning, using your fingers to press the rub into the meat.
  • Place the steak on the grill grates directly over the heat and grill for 3-4 minutes per side. Stay close and monitor until the internal temperature reaches 125-135 degrees F. You won't have much carryover with this, so take it off right when you hit the correct temp.
  • Remove the steak when it has reached your desired doneness. Rest for 10 minutes.
  • Slice per instructions in post. Enjoy with your family and friends, and revel in the joy of being a BBQ hero.
