  • Combine white sugar, kosher salt, garlic powder, black pepper, paprika, thyme, oregano, lemon pepper, and chipotle powder to make the rub. Store in an airtight container until ready to use (up to 6 months).
  • Lightly brush the yellow mustard all over the rib eye. Then lightly sprinkle on the dry rub to coat the meat. Using a combination of cherry and apple wood, preheat your smoker to 225 degrees. Place the meat, fat side up, in the smoker and cook for approximately 1 hour. Let cool completely. Cut the meat into desired steak size. Grill the steaks on high heat 2-3 minutes per side. Place on indirect heat and grill 2-3 minutes per side for medium rare, 3-5 for medium, 5-7 for medium well, and 7-10 for well done. Serve.

I'm a single Dad of 3 kids. I've been a bachelor for 15 years. I took an interest in cooking at an early age. My Mom is a fantastic cook. Before I was ever allowed to cook a meal on her stove, she taught me the importance of spices. After high school, I split time as a ranch hand and cook for a renowned area restaurant. I went to chili cook offs with the owner and over the years I also served as a judge for a few. I have always enjoyed grilling and smoking more than anything else I cook. I have created many of my own recipes. And adapted others to my personal tastes. I have cooked for a lot of people over the years. And although I never entered a contest myself, many people who have not only entered but won big contests have tried my food. And I have often been asked why I don't enter. The answer is simple. My reward is the look of satisfaction on people's faces when they enjoy what they are eating. I don't need a trophy to enjoy the art of cooking. I just want to serve a good meal to good people who appreciate it.
