Not sure what cuts I use but I think prep is the biggest factor. I have used various methods. I have tried submerging in Sea salt over night to draw out the moisture. Counter intuitve but the steaks came out wonderful. My typical method is Lea and perins, garlic salt and pepper. I put them in a vacuum canister and stick them in the fridge over night.

Good luck.

If there is a Costco near by, prime Ribeye is a good choice, if you want something a bit leaner go for the prime Top Sirloin or NY cuts.
If you really want to go all out, there is only one choice... Porterhouse (about 1 1/2" thick).

Ribeye, but if you want to try something different that cooks fast, skirt steak.

Pork sirloin is good and inexpensive.

Boned leg of lamb, seasoned with rosemary, garlic, olive oil.

If you’re trying something new, do a test run first.

I usually go for strip steak, also called ny strip. It's 1step over from tenderloin. Let rest to room temp, dry the steaks with paper towels, and simply apply salt and fresh ground pepper. Cook on a screaming hot grill, like 500, 550. For a 1.5 inch thick steak it's about 4 to 5 min first side then flip for 3 to 5 on second. That's for medium rare.
Let it rest off the grill for about 5 min before serving. Slice across the narrow width, or simply serve one per person if you are carnivorous.
Google bobby flay strip steak. He has it down, I just use it
You can do the same thing with a seasoned cast iron frying pan on the stove, but better have an exhaust!

Ribeyes are nice and flavorful from the fat marbling. Excellent grillers. Strips are a bit leaner and also a great choice. I tend to keep it simple...throw some coarse sea salt, black pepper, garlic and/or onion powder on the raw steaks and slap them on the preheated (HOT) grill. When the one side is almost done, rotate the steaks 90 degrees for those nice char marks. Flip, repeat, remove from the grill, let rest for a few minutes. Then ENJOY!

Thumbs up Game Meat

When I supplied the largest paving outfit West of the Rockies the Machine Shop had a hunting club and every year after the hunt we'd have a delicious Bambi Taco luncheon .

Then stupid ass roger (see the other thread about Firearm safety) kept his loaded 30.06 on the front seat of his pickup truck, saw a deer and hopped out grabbing the loaded rifle by the muzzle, not surprisingly the middle seat belt buckle snagged the trigger and he shot himself in the leg, fell out side the truck and almost bled out before anyone found him....

SAFETY KNOWS NO SEASON .

No matter how macho you pretend to be, you simply cannot fix stupid .

I think it's a California thing, but a seasoned tri-tip is an excellent choice... Be it sliced super thin for sandwiches, or a nice thick piece for eating on its own.
