1Drizzle soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce onto the steaks. Sprinkle with steak rub or Zestuous Rib-eye Rub. Rub into the meat on both sides. Let rest at room temperature while you light the egg.
2Add lump charcoal to the Big Green Egg, filling to the first line. Tuck a natural charcoal starter into the charcoal and light it. Let it burn for about 10 minutes with the lid open.
3In a small bowl, combine the butter, garlic and thyme.
4Place the cooking grid into the egg and close the lid. Adjust the temperature to about 550 degrees F. The bottom vent will be wide open and the top vent will be mostly open.
5Place the steaks on the grill. Close the lid and cook for 2 minutes.
6Burp the egg (open it about one-inch to release some heat). Then, open it all the way. Flip the steaks. Close the lid and cook for 2 more minutes.
7Burp the egg. Then, open it all the way. Flip the steaks again. Spoon the butter mixture onto the steaks.
8Close the lid. Shut the bottom vent and add the damper top.
9For medium-rare steaks, keep the lid closed for 3 minutes. For well-done steaks, leave the lid closed for about 6 minutes. Remove from the egg, and let the meat rest about 5 minutes before slicing.
