Man.. you have gotten a lot of good advice on the flank steak. My family eats it at least a couple of time a month. So I have had it pretty much every way described so far. I made one last night and rubbed it w/ the spice rub I used on ribs. It turned out very well.
High heat
4 to 5 mins on each side.
slice against the grain.
OH.. and defiantly let it rest for a few minutes.

The best marinade I have found for flank steaks is KC Masterpiece Teriyaki marinade.

I somked some a few weeks ago. These came pre-marinated and packaged as fahita meat. Just tossed them on the grate and smoked for 20 min or so (If I remember right - I was cooking about 10 other things at the time). Really nice combination of marinade and smoke.

Here's my favorite. Get a can of Jalapenos and marinade the flanks in the juice. You can use the peppers,onion and carrots fom the can and mix with cilantro and tomatoes and make a salsa. PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

I heard from a chef that one of the best ways to cook flank/skirt is to get your coals hot, about 4sec of exposure to your hand, and then take a hairdryer and blow the ash off real good then lay the meat directly on the coals. Blowing the ash off prevents 98% of any coal or ash from getting on the meat, then cook about 2-3 min per side, to medium doneness.

If any of you watch Alton Brown on Good Eats, you may have seen this episode. Please correct any of my instructions if need be...

Those I believe are flank steak pinwheels, made by rolling one or more flank steaks and cutting across the grain into ½" to 1" thick pinwheels. When you open the package you will find they will unroll into thin strips like fajita meat. Depending on the thickness you could push a skewer thru the center laid flat to hold them together, or let them unroll and cook the strips to no more than medium.

Thanks, just trying to find something different to smoke. Have a new smoker from the academy sports store.

I like to marinade in Soy Sauce, Brown Sugar, Ginger, Garlic, & Red Pepper Flakes
