I ordered this roast up at Christmas time and have been dying to try it……and tonight was the DAY!!!
IMG_7425.jpeg


I scored the fat cap at 45 degrees and then HEAVILY salted and seasoned it with a blend of kinders…..Ie what I call “dropped in the sand”
IMG_7431.jpeg


You can see the fat score and the amount of seasoning, this is a 32 oz roast so it needs some seasoning……
IMG_7432.jpeg


This went on the RT @ 180 to soak up some smoke…….
IMG_7433.jpeg


I totally botched the timing as after an hour it was only 82 INT but all the other sides were close to the window…… here it is after the hour…
IMG_7438.jpeg


So I went into over drive and dropped it on the super hot Weber………
IMG_7439.jpeg


The Weber was so hot it seared crazy fast…. So to keep it from over searing and on schedule I sliced it in 1” slices to finish the sear……

Bingo perfection INT!
IMG_7442.jpeg


Now the whole plate….. some crab boil
lobster claws, Cajun fresh linguine, and a choke!
IMG_7443.jpeg


This is a party plate of flavor…..
IMG_7444.jpeg


Ok this is the money shot!!!!!
IMG_7445.jpeg


This is my first home cook of a Picanha and this CPB was off the chart in flavor, it was better than any Brazilian grill version that I have had!

Just a few left over nibbling snack bits!!!! YUMMY!

Oh and the wife made this brown sugar pineapple upside down cake!!!!! She had a fresh pineapple she used…..she is enjoying her slightly increased allowed activity……so am I!!!

I couldn’t wait for the Carmel sauce…. So I toasted the top with the torch and a little ice cream…… I’m officially in a comma and glad it was a single meal day!

Man that is crazy goodness! I going to try to pull off some octopus, scallops and snowcrab today. Man I hope I dont screw this one up.
Thanks Brian! Sounds yummy! I have to admire I’ve never cooked octopus, I’ve eaten lots of it just not prepared it….good luck!
Nice cook on the steak . That dessert ,,,,, my goodness .
Thanks chop! The dessert….yes my wife was like how do you like those pineapples! She can do a bit more now and oh boy talk about she is putting it to good use!
Looks amazing!

You are an artist!
Thanks RS……it was a fun meal to do! Cost had the claws and fresh pasta….bingo the light went on.
You got the Picanha done perfectly. Dinner plate looks wonderful!
Thanks schlotz! The Picanha cooks different than a steak….the fat insulates it. It reminds me of a tri tip cooking….you can rush it!
Wholey cow! That looks amazingly delicious. Nice work for sure. What a plate and money shot!
Much appreciated SE! The flavor of the CPB is crazy clean and good. I would dip my slices in the seasoned butter had with the choke and with the salty crust….oh man!
 
man oh man! That is a heck of a meal. And that cake! perfection from start to finish. Yep some recliner time would be needed after that meal.

Looks awesome! I'd make two meals out of it... meal # 1 the main plate, meal # 2... the dessert and ice cream!

Steak cooked to perfection and what a dessert! Time for the stretchy pants 😅
