    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!

          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
