Bruce E, 05cr125r has a good point. Let your steaks come up to room temperature. Do not let it sit more than 3 hours.

Use a Kosher (Or similar size) salt. Rub the steaks with the salt and pepper liberally and then let them sit to get to room temp. The salt will work its way into the meat. This may cause the meat to sweat (Also called Koshering.) Dab both sides with a paper towel before putting on the grill. The moisture will cool down the grill too quickly causing the meat to stick. This is all I would put on higher end cuts of meat like NY, Filet or T-Bones. That is all they need. If you are doing sirloins, pork loins or beef roasts then you can go nuts with seasonings.

I would stay away from any oil, for the grill anyway. Charcoal/gas grills can get to 300+ degrees. Extra virgin olive oil reaches it's smoke point at 190 or so. Even light olive oil hits that point at 240. This can leave soot marks on the steak and change the flavor of the meat. The oil works great in a saute pan but a grill will get too hot.
