I have some time to prep on weekends or the night before.How much time do you have? Are you in a rush? I smoke everything or cook it low and slow...then at the end reverse sear it.
You can do that a few ways, but here is one for each method of grill:
I've spent the last 30 years grilling, from the time I was super young thru the barracks years getting in trouble for some reason for having a grill for SGT's time to early marriage til now.

Watch them all when you get time, not for the Smoking tips although those are EPIC since he might be the GOAT...but one of his videos he says "you have to make mistakes to get good!"
