    Smoked Sirloin

    It was just me for dinner last night, so I thought I'd try smoking a small sirloin steak. Rubbed with McCormick's Montreal Steak Rub and smoked at 225F to an IT of 120F, then a reverse sear on the gasser. Came out very smokey, maybe even a little too much smoke. I think I prefer steaks done sous vide, then reverse seared. (And yes David, I did the one minute then flip dance. With this thin of a cut, I'm not sure it mattered.)

    I don't like smoked steak. I like indirect with charcoal that is well lit and not smoking up the joint.

      I hear you on smoked steaks. While I do like some smoke, beef is very easy to oversmoke, especially steaks being thinner than roasts or brisket. I like just a touch. I've done steaks indirectly and seared over embers (very minimal smoke) and it was great.

      Looks beautiful Mark! I've used a rub called "Canadian steak seasoning" from Gordon's Food Service (GFS). I'm guessing it's a knockoff of Montreal? Good stuff. I like pepper & garlic on beef.

        The ingredient I really like in Montreal Steak Rub is dill seed. You wouldn't normally think that it would be good, but it is! Our Costcos out here usually stock the McCormick's.

        Interesting. My dad once told me he heard about marinating steaks in dill pickle juice. I've never tried that, nor do I think I ever will....but there must be something to dill on beef.

      I do steaks pretty much the same as Jerod and use the firebox on my COS for the sear.

        I have tried smoked sirloin and it is pretty rich stuff. I like steak cooked on the grill the best.

          I hear you. I think beef benefits from jsut a kiss of smoke. I have smoked them before and liked it much less. Currently I will do steaks indirect over mostly charcoal with a small chunk of wood, or over only embers.

        It looks like you have a lot less brown this time. How do you like the Montreal Steak seasoning for smoked beef? I used to use it religiously on grilled steaks on my gasser (pre-Amazing Ribs days) but now I just use salt until the meats done, then I'll add a little butter and cracked pepper as a finisher.

          I still like the Montreal for regular steak (had it tonight as a matter of fact). But I like the BBBR with less pepper (see my version in the rubs section) for smoked beef better.

            Roger that. I still use the McCormicks Montreal from time to time, especially if I'm not able to reverse sear.
