Cowboy Grill

Tom Perini, proprietor of Perini Ranch Steakhouse in Buffalo Gap, Texas, considers himself a chuckwagon cook, not a chef.

Perini likes to grill his steaks right above the coals, so it catches a little bit of flame.

"I like a steak to have char marks on it,"he says. "That adds flavor."

Another key to grilling flavorful steaks is to not overcook them, so they retain some of their natural jui...
