Whole NY Strip for 7/3 with Q-view

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 

I have an 11ish pound strip loin that I'm thinking of smoking tomorrow (Probably will only smoke 1/3rd of it as I'm only feeding 5 people).  I've done whole tenderloins, ribeyes, and standing rib roasts but never a strip. 

 

So, any reason to NOT smoke at 225 until 135ish IT?

I wouldn't think twice about smoking it whole...130-135 will give you a moist ...medium rare taste treat. If the outside isn't as browned up as you like... a quick sear on a red hot grill will give you the color for a excellent presentation. Don't forget the q-views...beercheer.gif

I might pull it at 125, but we like 'em rare.

I'll pre-order a 1 1/2 inch center cut of rare, (wounded and headed my way prefferably).. Go fo it, theres enough of us ion here to help to eliminate any possibility of leftovers..

Well I cut it in half and prepped 1/2 of it with SPG, wrapped, and vacuum sealed. It will sit until tomorrow at which time it will be smoked over hickory (AMNPS) @ 225. I want the finishing temp to be about 130ish. Dinner is at 6pm so depending on how quickly it cooks I may pull it early (due to reheating on a grill).

 

The hunk I'll smoke is 5.5lbs. I'll also have one or two Cornish hens, mac-n-cheese, beans, and ABTs (can't smoke without throwing in ABTs!!!). I now have to feed 9 people (7 adults with only 6 of them eating beef) so I think we'll have enough food. I am a bit concerned with having enough beef but we'll make due. Oh, I'm also toying with smoking some potatoes and turning them into mashed potatoes. I love smoked "baked" potatoes but I have never made them into mashed.

 

Below are pictures of my dinner (I took a steak out of the center) and the 1/2 that I will be smoking tomorrow. Sorry but no pictures of the whole loin as I didn't think about taking pictures until after it was seasoned.

No, no story yet; I haven't smoked it yet.  That steak (dinner) was cooked inside on cast iron.

 

However, I have used your little gem for my first beer-butt chicken last week.  It was the first time cooking for my future in-laws (it was only my father in law) and let me tell you, I LOVE your new contraption.  I didn't feel that it was letting off enough smoke with just one end lit so I lit both ends and it was perfect!  I can't wait to use it again tomorrow!!!!!

No, not asking advice to smoke it but rather if anybody had objections to it (some people can't stand to see others smoke a whole tenderloin so I was wondering if people felt that way about an entire strip), out of curiosity.  I cooked a steak on cast iron not the entire loin (I needed dinner and had an 11lb loin so why not take 1.5" out of the center for dinner).  The loin (1/2 of it) will be smoked tomorrow (hence the 7/3 in the title and the wording in the post with the pictures).

Patience my southern friend, patience.  My dinner got bumped up to 5pm now so it will come a bit earlier!

Sorry, I jumped the gun!

Start 2 ends???

It starts out slow, but light more pellets, then it burns more surface area to smoke.

Yeah, I had issues lighting it at first.  I didn't let it burn long enough I think.  I then re-lit it and got a bit more smoke but got impatient so I lit both ends.  It was on a butt and let me tell you, that was the absolute best butt I've ever had.  I couldn't get over the amazing smoke flavor.  It was very powerful yet extremely clean.  I'm not sure I have ever had some a pronounced yet pleasant smoke taste in ANY BBQ from anywhere (and I travel at least 50% and try BBQ all over the country).

That steak looks absolutely delicious!

Thanks Al!  It was one of the best steaks I've ever had...probably top 5 (which includes several high-end steak houses in the midwest).

 

I am afraid of this loin.  I wanted to pull it early and serve it medium-rare but my brother wants it to be more like a brisket.  2 hours from dinner and it is at 136 so I am afraid it will just be a well done steak/roast.  I am planning on putting it in a pan with some beer and trying to braise it for 1-1.5 hours at 350-400 to get it tender and try to bring the temp up as high as I can get.  Otherwise I just let to coast to the finish line and have it be 145-150.  I am not sure which is the better of the two evils.

Well it was a big hit.  I pulled the loin @165 and wrapped with some beer and put it in a 400 degree oven until 180.  At that time it was 4:40 so I took it out to let it rest for 30 minutes before being sliced.  This was a HUGE hit but it wasn't quite what I had wanted to do.  I think I will smoke the other half and let it rest to 125ish.  Sorry but I don't have any sliced pictures.  I took the food to my parents' house and forgot my camera.  Two kinds of beans.  1 spicy and 1 not (my oldest niece is a sissy when it comes to heat).
