Allow the tomahawk steak to come to room temperature, approx. 1 hour.


Generously coat the steak in olive oil then season well with the salt and pepper.


Prepare a barbecue. Make sure the coals are to one side of the barbecue to create a cool zone for cooking the meat indirectly. Close the lid of the barbecue to generate an internal temperature of 220°C.


Place the tomahawk steak on the cool side of the grill and close the lid. Cook for 25 minutes on one side before flipping over on the other side and continuing to cook, with the lid closed, for a further 25 minutes.


Open the lid of the barbecue. Using a meat thermometer, check the internal temperature of the steak – it should be between 44°C-50°C.


Move the steak over to the hot side of the grill, directly over the coals, and sear on both sides until you get a good char. Remove the steak from the grill and allow to rest for 15 minutes.


Slice the tomahawk, making sure to go against the grain, and serve.
