    Smoke a Top Sirloin, Cap, Coulotte

    I recently purchased a half grass fed and finished Angus Steer with my buddy and there are a few cuts that are unfamiliar to me. I need to smoke something this weekend and I was going to use this cut and use Meatheads awesome brisket recipe that has never failed me. Any words of caution or advice?

      2 posts in 5 years? Are you an accountant? Perhaps a tracker or a scorekeeper?

      I advise smoking all of them. I caution against smoking all of them. Hope that helps.

    Do not cook that like a brisket. That is also known as the pichana and should be cooked like a tri tip or rib roast, i.e. 225-250 until IT of 125 or so then sear it off. Or do it Gaucho-style and cut into 1" steaks, skewer, then roast over an open fire until medium rare. I like to serve with chimichurri or salsa criolla .

      When I find a pichana that has the fat cap removed they seem to call it a coulotte.

      Ok, ok... i guess I've been a reader rather than a sharer. I have learned so much from everyone and I really appreciate the guidance and content on the site. I’ll try and do better...

        When I was a meat cutter, we'd take the cap and cut it into 1" strips. Can do a lot of things with that. But then I went to a Brazilian joint and saw the whole cap on a skewer - I cooked it like a tri-tip and liked it a lot. It's really part of the sirloin, so whatever you'd do with that you can do with the cap - stir fry?

          It’s a steak, treat it like you would any steak. Do not cremate it.

            If you have a rotisserie, try to take it for a spin. Look up pichana. If you’ve been to a Brazilian steakhouse, you’ve probably had it. If you haven’t been to a Brazilian steakhouse, give one a shot, but go hungry!

                Here's a whole roast I do as routine, it's our favorite cut of beef. Either front or reverse sear and roast until medium rare (or whatever your finish preference is);

                    Try the teres major cut. It's hard to find, but equally good and not expensive. One of my favorite restaurant serves it sliced and it's as nearly as good as a ny sirloin properly.

                        Personally i think I would first try to identfie those cuts. As they would change the way you cook them. Smoke chuck roast is great table fair. ( highly recomeded ) There are some exclent tip's on here how to smoke a chuckie. But I would not cook it as I do a steak. It's been many years since purchasing a side of beef but all the packageing was labled.
                        You may have to unpackage to decide what cuts you have, label and repackage.

                        the good one grill
                        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.

Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!
