    Bought myself some quality Polish sirloin

    I went to my new favorite butcher in town. A real classy (read: expensive) place, but each cut of meat is labeled in detail so you know whether it's a cow or steer, which country, age in months, grass fed et.c. I love it. So, I treated myself to a real nice hunk of sirloin, from Poland. This cow was 60 months old before being slaughtered. I'll cook this using the (now) classic reverse sear method.

    They're good at wrapping the meat in a nice package:

    That's 1 lb of meat, I'll be enjoying this cut tonight. Just add salt, nothing else.

    Boy does that look great, Henrik. Hope you have a favorable interest rate on the loan to buy a full pound. Late afternoon in Sweden as I write this, so I assume you'll be chowing down relatively soon. Please let us know how (great) it is!

          That looks like a quality piece of meat beyond a doubt! Man I would have had to look at the packaging a couple of days before I unwrapped it! A wax seal?!?! Are you kidding me!?! Can't wait to see when you're done!

            Yep, all done 'n dusted! Great steak for sure. I did overshoot on temp, not happy about that, every 20 cooks or so I tend to relax a bit too much. Oh well, you live and you learn.

            I did create a new sauce that went well with the meat. I made a classic hollandaise sauce, but added two teaspoons of green pesto. That turned out to be a nice compliment to the meat.

                That's a great lookin' hunk o' meat for sure. And that shop does look veeeeery expensive. (I would have put a couple more "e"s in very, but they would have to raise the price even higher.

                  • Hi, my name is Darrell. I'm an OTR truck driver for over 25 years. During my off time I love doing backyard cooks.

                      Interesting Henrik, there is Polish jokes in Sweden. BTW my mothers parents were from Poland.
                      Much was talked about the meat , which looks outstanding. But, the package is something to be seen & not opened almost. Quality paper, tied perfectly AND with a wax seal, that is picture perfect.
                      Now, let’s see the end results.

                        I agree, they do a great job gift wrapping. The end result is gobbled down, wasn't happy with the cook, so in frustration I didn't shoot. Will need to buy another cut and get my revenge :-) Will post then.

                        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.

                        The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175? to 350?F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.
