    NY Strip Roast

    I'll be doing a NY Strip roast for Christmas Eve, I've already trimmed the roast and I'm getting ready to season with salt, as suggested in the website. My question is, should I tie the roast up, or leave it as is?

    If it is an oblong shape, I think tying it up to be more round would be recommended... See Meathead's article on Prime Rib, here, item number 5 on the left side>>


    I am thinking that would apply here with a NY Strip roast too... the whole reason for making it rounder is to get more even cooking.


      Ditto to smarkley, round up that sucker. You don't need burnt ends on this. However, you can score the top to make some.


        Welcome to The Pit Grove smith! Sounds like you got some good advice here.

        Since this is your first post, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains lots of how-tos and please-dos! Hope to hear & see more from you.


          We cook these often at the restaurant for a dinner special. We don't need to tie, at least for the way we serve it. We just treat it as a prime rib, but with a shorter cooking time(of course). There is no wrong answer in a culinary sense, just do what your sensibilities tell you. On a bet, I trimmed and blackened the whole thing on a cast iron griddle. It turned out great(my boss was pissed, at least till we sold it all in 45 minutes!).

          Welcome to the pit. Happy Holidays and good smokin' from Houston, Alaska


            Thanks guys - I just picked one of these up at Publix for $6.99 / lb.

            I was just going to slice 1.5" steaks out of it and save myself the extra $2 / lb by having the butcher do it.

            I am assuming, of course, that a NY Strip roast is where NY Strip steaks come from...


              Strip roast is a pretty firm cut, might not be able to tie it up to round, oval may be as good as it gets. Thanks everyone for the advise, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Festivus et....Enjoy the time with family friends and great food!

                Hey there Grover! Welcome to the Pit! I'm looking forward to some pics of this adventure.


                  Welcome Grove! We want pics of your cook!


                    Respectfully, just Grove, no "R" on the end.

                    Tonight's menu:

                    Appetizer-Savory Ricotta and Zucchini Cheesecake
                    Salad- Mixed Greens with Candies Pecans, Craisins and a Wild Mushroom and Red Apple Vinaigrette
                    Entrée- Roast NY Strip Loin with Wild Mushroom Fondue topped with Cheese Cheesy Cobbler and Rosemary Roasted New Potatoes.
                    Dessert- Likely, just more Red Wine!


                      Probably smells great by now! I did one a few weeks ago. Trimmed aggressively and tied into as much of an oval as I could get. Here it's been rubbed up with Mr's O'Leary's Cow Crust, which is tough to beat. Ready to go in. About 4 hours on hickory, 215-220. People loved it.

It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
