  • Preheat the grill. Preheat your smoker to 225 degrees F, or your gas or charcoal grill for 2-zone cooking.
  • Season the ribeye cap steaks. Season your steaks on all sides with beef seasoning (or equal parts salt, pepper, and garlic powder).
  • Grill the steaks. Place the cap steaks directly on smoker or on the indirect heat side of grill. Close the lid and smoke for 1-1.5 hours. Cook the steaks until they are 10 degrees away from your target temperature (110 degrees F for rare, 120 for medium rare, 130 for medium, 140 for medium well, and 150 for well done).
  • Sear the steaks. Preheat a 12" cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and drizzle in the avocado oil. Place the steaks in the skillet and sear for 1-2 minutes per side, or until the steaks reach your desired internal temperature (120 degrees F for rare, 130 degrees for medium rare, 140 for medium, 150 for medium well, and 160 for well done).
  • Rest and serve. Remove the steaks from the skillet, allow them to rest, and serve.
