10 lb top Sirlion with Q-view

  1. Well another successful smoke. Did up a 10 lb Top Sirloin roast Saturday and it was awesome. It was previously frozen. I thawed it for a day and covered i tin steak spice, garlic, salt and black pepper. Just before it went in the smoker I put it in the oven on broil for 15 minutes. The next seven hours it was in the smoker at 210 to 220 F until 147 F. I used hickory and mesquite wood this time. I removed it from the smoker, double wrapped it in tin foil, wrapped it in a towel and in the cooler it went for 1.5 hours. I am unsure if the temperature went up or what happened after it left the smoker but we were left with one awesome piece of beef. So tender, so juicy and so flavorful. I was looking forward to the results of this all week and boy I was not disappointed. The butcher figured I had enough meat for 20 people. There were 5 adults and three kids. We ate the whole damn thing that night.... so no excellent lunch for me this week. It is just crazy how great this tasted. I am going g back to the butcher on Monday and asking for another one of those roasts. For $2.90  / lb I'll take that over a prime rib since there were no bones, little fat and half the price too!

    here we go

    That looks awesome!! Too bad you didn't have any leftovers for sandwiches... I did one a little while back and made sure there were leftovers. It was even better the second day!!!

    Nice job![​IMG]
