How to cook thin steaks on the grill

Thin Cut Grilled Steak Recipe

Thin steaks pack the same flavor as thick ones and are surprisingly easy to cook on the grill.
This is assuming you are using a kamado-style grill or kettle grill using charcoal with GrillGrates.
If you are using a grill without GrillGrates be sure the cooking surface is clean.
Gas grills will use the same temperatures and methods but pre-heating times may vary.
