I always get 2 packages of coulotte (no fat cap) or picanha (with fat cap) per cow. depending on what I request.
This cow was coulotte, but the 2nd package (this one here) had 2 cuts in it. The triangular cut is what I usually get. I don't know what this other cut is, but the texture and flavor is very similar to the triangular coulotte. I'll gladly take it. Coulotte/picanha is maybe my favorite cut.

In a previous post I cooked coulotte with reverse sear. With the Santa Maria it seems more natural to sear first.
And for a picanha with the fat cap, I usually use a much different cooking method as previously posted here.

Anyway, this time I simply dusted with SPG and cooked over red oak, searing first, and then lowering cooking temperature.
Zucchini was brushed with EVO and sprinkled with black Hawaiian salt before grilling.
Sweet peppers were cooked in the coals until charred, covered with foil to steam, then the skin scrapped off.
Tomatoes were coated with EVO, balsamic vinegar, parmesan cheese.

Man, this got the endorphins going tonight.

Wow. What a great post and a great meal. I do love the Santa Maria. Yours looks like the same brean I used to have, but different grates. Very nice job.

Excellent thread ! Thanks for posting .

YES!!! Great job. The meat is done just as I love it, the peppers look great, those tomato slices make a great side, and the zucchini...well I never was a fan.

Looks amazing, congrats on a great job!!!

Coulotte's are a wonderful cut of steak, you nailed it, really nice work there! RAY

That looks great. Nice grill for sure! I love the ability to raise and lower the grates.

Thanks, everyone, for the kind words.
The beef was out of this world. Nice and tender with a mellow smoky flavor.
And the coal roasted peppers were great. After scrapping off the skins, they were completely ash-free.
