    i had planed on smoking this for a short time and finish on the grill but that didn't happen. finished it in the smoker,

    hickory and around 3 hrs at a 200 temp
    pulled it when it got to 137

    If it were me, I would have left it on a little longer but it looks great other than that.[​IMG]

    granted it looks rare but it wasn't red rare, just very pink all the way through, i could have left it in longer and it would of had a lighter pink color, say if i had pulled it at a temp of 139--140 it would have been a lighter color.

    thats from the low temp, it gives alot more pink in the center and you can control that better.
    now if i had the smoker set at 250 and pulled it when it hit 139, the pink layer would have been much thinner, thats why i like lower temps for steaks and it works with any cut of steak.
    all you need is a good smoker therm, and a good meat therm,

    this chart is for a smoker temp of 250

    Well done 160------169
    Medium well 149------159
    Medium 139-------148
    Medium Rare 130-------138
    Rare 121-----129
    Very rare 113

    it still works for a 200 temp too, i pulled mine at 137 and you can see its still in those ranges.

    Yeah, me too. I think that some steaks or stuffed burgers would be awesome smoked with some mesquite.

    BTW, I'm laughing so hard at that pic of Carl! I miss me some ATHF -- guess I need to find the DVD's.

    A tad bit well done for me, but great job! (still like hearing it 'mmmoooooo' when you stick the fork in... [​IMG]). Used to stand at the block and when a nice looking loin would pass through trim off a little to try..
