    If it is London Broil I wouldn't go over 140* I took one to 145* yesterday while the other two were lower and the 145* one was tough while the other two were not and had better juice

    Dude, I'm siding with Jerry on this. Smoke that thing to give it a ring but keep the temps low to enjoy them as a tender piece of meat.
     
  5. I have bought those before at the local club store up my way.I did them seared and slow not a lot of smoke.They slice up great I love that real steak taste for the price.

    so.......a smoke for maybe a hour, then sear?

    i was going to sear em anyway after the smoke

    having neighbors over, and one doesn't like med. rare, so if i take this to med., will it make it tuff then?

    The smoke-then-sear method sounds about right, especially if you've got some bacon wrapped around those suckers. If you take the one steak to medium, it should be just about right. There's that fine line between when the steak goes from tender to chewy. If anything, don't sear that one as long so the outside doesn't get too tough.

    My $0.02.
