Thanks for the tips and recipe. Can't say I was happy with it but a few more people want to move in to my house and are blaming me for their weight gain.
I ended up cutting in half length wise and scoring the fat cap. Trimmed off the sinew that I could find. Injected both halves with a quickie marinade of basically teriyaki, steak sauce, worcestshire sauce. Let sit overnight, then rubbed down with Jeff's Rib Rub and sit for a few hours.
One half went into the smoker.
The other half started out on the spit. But the grills rot motor had a hard time with the meat. So I pulled it off the spit and seared it on the grill. Then grilled on very low heat until the smoker opened up. Then it went into the smoker as well.
At midnight the wife decided that she wanted pulled pork as well. So off to the store to find a pork shoulder. Safeway is running a sale this weekend. Nothing special here. Crosscut score through the fat cap, spicy dijon mustard, & more rub. Into the smoker.
Ended up slicing the beef up in really thin strips across the grain. Came out with a really sweet smoke ring. Interesting on beef that cherry wood leaves a really distinct red smoke ring. Add some cherry BBQ sauce and it made for some good eats.
The second beef cut came out okay as well. Had enough here that I ran several chunks through the food proc to make a ground BBQ beef spread with some cherry-honey BBQ sauce. I like using the spread to make a BBQ appetizer made of chips, dap of sauce, spread, and top with cheese.
Got the pork shoulder up to 170 then finished off in the oven last night. Wrapped and stowed in a cooler. It was still warm for tonight's supper. Pulled with some finishing sauce.
Overall I was not impressed with the beef top sirloin. Once cut it dried out very quickly. It was not as tough or chewy as I expected but it did not have much flavor despite the marinade & rub. This is not the first cut of beef I have smoked that ended up with little flavor. Not sure if this is indicative of beef specifically or I am missing something.
Anyway, some happy guests got to take home take home leftovers.
