  • 4 filets
  • 2 tablespoons beef rub (equal parts salt, pepper and garlic powder)
  • 2 tablespoons sweet rub
  • 2 tablespoons activated charcoal rub
  • 1/2 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce (Hey Grill Hey Everything Sauce)
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter


Preheat your smoker to 225 degrees.  Cut the steaks into 1 1/2” cubes. 

Pour the beef rub and sweet rub onto a small plate and mix to combine.  Pour the charcoal rub on another plate.  Dip the top and bottom of each steak bite into the midnight rub and then roll the sides in the sweet sub.  Set the seasoned bites on a cooling rack.

Transfer the cooling rack with the steak bites onto the smoker grates.  Close the lid and smoke for one hour.

Transfer the steak bites to a cast iron skillet.  Drizzle with BBQ sauce, sprinkle the brown sugar evenly across and dot with pats of butter.  Place the skillet back on the smoker and continue cooking until the steaks reach 130 degrees, the butter has melted and the sauce has tightened around the steak bites.
