"Whole Boneless Beef Sirloin Tip" Help

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

This week Food Lion Grocery Store has “Whole Boneless Beef Sirloin Tip” on sale for $2.48 a pound.

They also have smaller “Sirloin Tip Roasts” and “Sirloin Tip Steaks” on sale for $3.59 a pound, around here these are normally $3.69 a pound.

I am assuming that the smaller Sirloin Tip Roasts are cut from the larger “Whole” Sirloin Tip. Since the price for the “whole” one seemed so good I picked up one up.

Man, this is one big piece of beef. It weighs in at just over 11 pounds.

Now for the reason for this post, should I smoke this beast whole or cut it into smaller roasts/steaks? Has anyone smoked a whole 11 pound plus Sirloin Tip?

I put this one in the deep freeze till I get some answers at how best to tackle this thing.

Any advice/opinions from the great folks on this forum would be greatly appreciated.

Congrats on the deal I'll be trying to find a Food Lion around here to pick up a couple of those.. What I like to do with them is salt, pepper and garlic then smoke them to 140 degrees and slice them very thin for sandwiches. The leftovers I vacuum seal and freeze so we have great sandwich material whenever we want it.

That is exactly my first thought of how to cook this. FYI: when you go to Food Lion, they had the package labled as "Boneless Beef Round".

David,

 

If I had that baby, I would do it Exactly like SmokinAl did in the thread I linked for you below.

That is definitely one of the best I have ever seen!

My question is: If it's a sirloin tip roast, why would they label it as a round roast? Do you have a photo of the roast? Pops would be able to tell looking at it I think.

I thought it was for pricing as the smaller ones were labled Sirloin Tip Roast. I also thought "Round" could refer to what I have seen called "Steamship Round". My next trip out to the freezer I will get a Picture.

I saw those today and was thinking about grabbing one. I love pulled beef but would love to try this on my WSM or MES...the price seems pretty good considering the MVP tag says you save $21.damn!

Until Pops gives you a more authoritative and useful answer, this interesting chart will give you a lot of good info including the IMPS/NAMP designations of many beef cuts:
