    Indirect to ~120º, then sear as hot as you can get it. Slice thin.

      Do you shop at Seabra? Great meat counter. I bought a bag of their large rock salt with garlic and made picanha two weeks ago. Great flavor.

      Bkhuna - Shop there frequently, it's quite close to home. They have beef items that are hard to find anyplace else - picanha, tri-tip and boneless beef "ribs". In addition, their selection of cheeses and sausages is incredible.

      Steve B I get lucky, that cut made me look good.

    Picanha is currently my favourite steak. I cook mine whole then slice into steaks (as above).
    I do the reverse sear. Cook indirect @ 130C. When the IT is around 45C brown over the hot coals to get a good crust all round then move it back to indirect and pull when my IT gets to 52C.


      Reverse sear @250 to your desired temp. I cooked in my pellet grill until 117 then seared over charcoal.

        Looks amazing !

      I ended up cooking it in steak because I had already cut it. It was actually one of the best piece of meat I ever ate. Thanks all for your good recommendations it truly helped. Have a look and let me know what y’all think !,!

        I did this a while ago...

        This one is real good too..From SnS Grills and Guga Foods.


          I like to slice it in 3 pieces. Sprinkle with very course salt and put in frig for an hour or two. Fold each piece in half with the fat cap on the outside of the fold. I spear each piece with a rotisserie rod, put all 3 pieces on the spit and cook on the spit over charcoal. My favorite!
