Place 4 pounds beef steak, such as sirloin, porterhouse, T-bone, or rib, cut 1 1/2 inches thick, on a lightly greased grill about 3 inches from coals.
Grill about 6 minutes, or until first side is browned.
Turn with tongs and season with salt and black pepper.
Grill second side about 6 minutes, or until done.
(To test doneness, slit meat near bone and note color of meat.) Season second side of steak.
Remove from grill to serving plate and slice.
