Place Steak on Hot Skillet

Regarding BBQ Inc.
Place the steak in the center of the hot skillet. It is important that most of the steak is in contact with the metal as possible, so never use a steak bigger than your pan.

This will generate a good deal of smoke, popping, and sizzling but you must wait exactly two minutes before moving the steak. You might think it is burning, but I promise that everything is fine (unless flames are shooting towards the sky, then turn off the gas and run). Be patient and watch the clock closely.
