For the beef injection and marinade:
In a large stockpot over high heat, bring the water to a boil. Add the beef base and
the beef au jus to the water, and stir until dissolved. Remove from the heat.
If reserving for a later use, let the liquid cool; then pour it into a jug or bottle.
This can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Using paper towels or a very clean kitchen towel, pat the steak dry. Place the steak in a baking dish, cover it with the beef injection, and marinate at room temperature for 2 hours. About 30 minutes before you’re ready to cook, prepare a smoker or grill; bring the heat to 500°F.
Remove the steak from the marinade, and discard the marinade. Season the steak liberally on both sides with salt and pepper, and sprinkle it with the onion powder and garlic powder. Place the steak on the grill rack and sear it over direct heat for about 3 minutes per side. Transfer the steak to a platter and cover with aluminum foil. Let rest for 5 minutes.
Make your steak sauce: Collect ¼ cup of the drippings from the platter. Combine all the sauce ingredients with the reserved drippings in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat, whisking continuously, until it just comes to a boil. Set aside.
Uncover the steak. The best way to carve the steak is to use a sharp knife to cut the bone out completely (save it someplace safe for yourself for later on), and then cut the meat across thegrain in thick diagonal slices. You want each guest to taste some meat from both sides. Pour the sauce over the slices. Knock yourself out.
