The 4th of July weekend is here. Let the grilling begin! If you want your steaks to come out perfectly, experts say it's all in the seasoning.

The key to seasoning success is to start early, according to steak-enthusiast.com. How early should you start? Get the salt on that steak 15 minutes before cooking so the salt has time to soak into the meat. Any earlier, they say, and the salt will just wind up on the grill.

The experts also say to take those steaks out of the refrigerator and let them sit on the counter for 20 minutes. The main reason for this is that if the steak is cold, it will take longer to cook, and the colder the meat is, the harder it is to season.

Alright, grab the utensils, fire up the grill, and go get 'em! Happy grilling and Happy 4th!
