This time I decided to go bold on flavor. I had an extra flank from the previous cook (they come in 2's @ Sam's) and I've just been too busy to get to it but I got to it tonight. I always toil with the prep but I'm gonna stick to the "lazy man's" approach since I got so many irons in the fire. I decided to marinate this one in Dale's. I like Dale's and I also use it in my jerky. 2 hours of marinate and I remember I have some tx smoker beef rub so I decided to throw some of this on there while the Yoder is getting fired up. Set the Yoder @ 160 w/ Lumberjack 100% cherry, apple blend, and threw in some Pecan blend just to give it a little nutty accent. After about 1 1/4 hours it's just over 100 deg so I throw this flank onto the propane grill that is very hot and give it a quick sear and bring it to 130. Results are good (IMO) but a bit on the salty side. This rub is bold on it's own and it's probably good as a stand alone but I was going for bold and I achieve it (go big or go home, right?) Next time I'll either coat the flank with Dales prior to applying the rub (skip the 2 hour marinate) or I'll skip the marinate all together if I use this rub but I really like the flavor that the marinate adds to this - great for salad or fajitas. tx smoker I'm liking this rub. I've been a fan of TulsaJeff Texas rub for a long time and this is kind of in that same genre of rub but a lot more complex. Any thoughts, opinions, or ideas are appreciated. Thanks for looking.
