This was just my 3rd smoke since I got my smoker, first 2 was some Boston Butts that turned out great, today I stepped it up and went all out for Fathers Day. I did a 6.5# NY Strip roast. I rubbed it down with evoo and montreal steak seasoning last night and wrapped in plastic wrap in fridge. I put it on the smoker this afternoon using a mix of hickory, apple and cherry wood. Had the smoker at 250 and it was at 100 IT when I probed it just after 1 hr, thought I was in trouble lol. I ended up pulling it at 130 IT alittle after 2 hrs. let it rest for about 30 minutes while I was tending to my country style ribs and twice baked taters, both of which I got the how to`s on here :) I sliced the NY Strip into thick steaks and tossed a few on the gas grill to sear and without a doubt it was the best steak I have eaten, ribs were amazing and the taters as well. I was to stressed to get pics during the process whoops. I did get a couple plated shots I will try to post.
