IIRC you don't [normally] need to do much more than edit
/etc/default/grub (if desired), followed by:

# grub-install --recheck /dev/sdX
    ... repeat if using RAID ...
# grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

... unless you have an unusual setup. the above works fine for all my
machines (note: none are EFI, not sure about those) .. pretty easy IMO
