Tonight, I'm coming to you kossacks for your advice on one food item that I keep on screwing up. It's ribeye steaks. Especially bone-in ribeye steaks that I keep on screwing up.  

Right now I have two beautifully marbled ribeyes coming to room temperature on the kitchen island table. The surface of the steaks are still a bit cold. Should I wait until they're warm before taking them downstairs to the gas grill?

Also, the steaks are about two inches thick, and they're huge pieces of meat. How long would I grill them for to get a medium-rare temperature? I'm a grilling novice and could really use any advice you have on how to grill these beautiful steaks.

Short for the short diary, but this is your chance to throw in ribeye recipes or steak recipes. So have at it, kossacks!

UPDATE: Damn. The gas grill is being used by four people. Looks like it's the broiler for me.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
