It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Anyone do a sirloin tip roast on the BGE?

edited August 2012 in EggHead Forum
I have a small 2.5 LB Sirloin Tip Roast (Oven Roast) I figure that anything that is meant to be cooked in an oven will absolutely come out better on the BGE! Here is my idea. I have it marinading for about 12 hours, then will put my rub of salt, white pepper, and garlic powder on it, then plate setter legs up and dome temp at 260 and cook until int temp is 135. Remove and wrap in foil for about 20 min and feast! Any suggestions?

    No, but I will be doing an eye or round roast this upcoming week. My wife marinates it in Italian dressing like stuff which also has bourbon whiskey in it. Then the roast is daubed dry and coated with a log of fresh ground black pepper. I will cook it indirect at around 350 with a drip pan. That's about all I can say right now.

    I would sear it first then cook to 135.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    ditch the foil.  it will continue to rise in temp on its own without it.  it will way overshoot if you foil it.

    it needs to rise in temp then fall again.  foiling will overdo the carryover, and prevent the slight cooling.

    if it doesn't cool a bit, the juice will run all over when you slice it

    Learned that one the hard way.
    Foil is not for resting.

    Must sear first.

    The Dude: Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

    Searing a roast is a fairly new idea.
    Nothing wrong with it

    But if you like a crispy crusted roast, you wont get it with a sear. You'll get it by roasting. Which is why they call it a roast in the first place . And 225-325 is a good way to go. I'm talking about a rib roast though. If you have any decent fat layer on your strip (not likely) you could get a nice crust. But i havent seen decent fat on a strip in a while

    I sear my steaks and roast my roasts. Never lets me down

    +1 cook like any other steak, except I like to marinade these.  Teriyaki or Dichicko's both work well.
