Step 1

Light a gas grill and heat to high.

Season the steaks generously with salt and pepper and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. In a small bowl, whisk the barbecue sauce with the beer.

Oil the grill grate. Grill the steaks over high heat, turning once, until lightly charred on both sides, about 6 minutes total. Baste the steaks with the barbecue sauce and grill, turning and basting occasionally, until glazed and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 120°F for medium-rare meat, 3 to 5 minutes more. Transfer the steaks to a carving board and let rest for 10 minutes before serving.
