Serves: 4 // Prep time: 15 minutes | Grilling time: 6 to 8 minutes

Grocery List

Meat / Poultry / Seafood

  • 4 rib eye steaks, each about 10 oz and 1" thick

Oil and Spices

  • 1.5 tsp ancho chile powder
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • .5 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2.25 tsp kosher salt


  • .25 cups unsalted butter


  • 1.5 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 canned chipotle chile peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder



  • ¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon minced canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
  • 1 teaspoon packed brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt


  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1½ teaspoons ancho chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon packed brown sugar

  • 4 rib eye steaks, each about 10 ounces and 1 inch thick, trimmed of excess fat
  • Extra-virgin olive oil


  1. In a medium bowl mix the butter ingredients until evenly incorporated.

  2. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat (450° to 550°F).

  3. In a small bowl combine the rub ingredients. Lightly brush the steaks on both sides with oil and season evenly with the rub, gently pressing the rub into the meat. Allow the steaks to stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before grilling.

  4. Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the steaks over direct high heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until cooked to your desired doneness, 6 to 8 minutes for medium rare, turning once or twice (if flare-ups occur, move the steaks temporarily over indirect heat). Remove from the grill and smear the butter on top. Let rest for 3 to 5 minutes. Serve warm.

love my Jumbo Joe!

The size makes it! Even though I usually grill for only one or two, there is room to do indirect cooking. It's perfect.

I've been without a grill for awhile, so my first night out was such fun! It's also easy to clean up, which is necessary each time I use it as I live in an apartment. Now I just hope for some accessories, like a bag/cover and hinged grill that fits the Jumbo.

Another Great product from Weber...

I got this grill for Father's Day to replace our 15yr old Smokey Joe. The old grill was too small to serve my growing family of four during our frequent camping excursions (during which we grill dinner every night out). The old grill also had flimsy legs, which I'd bent every which way over the years. Jumbo has all the great features of weber's portable units, but I absolutely LOVE the lid holder that both holds the lid for cooking and secures it during transit. The cooking space available is amazing, and overall the unit takes up very little additional space in our RV during the pack up. I can't wait to use it again and again over the years!
