Picanha again...

Morning All:

It has been quite a while since I last did a piece of picanha, so tonight was the night...this piece weighed 2.3# so cut into three strips & onto the sword with a light coat of Dizzy Pig Raising the Steaks & a heavy coat of Kosher salt...ready for the Egg...


On the Egg direct with dome temp of about 450...


Took about 20 minutes to reach internal temp of 120 or so in the thickest piece in the middle, so ready to come off...


We added a salad (not pictured) along with some Uncle Ben's Long Grain & Wild rice...my plate with the largest piece which was a perfect rare-medium rare for my tastes...


Of course, it did require some assistance from my beautiful sous-chef...


Eggsellent dinner for a mid-week night!

I recently (and very reluctantly) agreed to be interviewed for an article in the BBQ News Magazine...attached is a pdf of the article (don't laugh too much).

Have a GREAT day!

    Morning @RRP 

    Let's try this...


    I'm also posting a link to the magazine, but I'm not sure you will be able to access it since it is a "subscription" thing...the article is on page 35.

    Impressive Jay. Congrats on the article,  well deserved. Also, I don't usually comment on things like this but you have the straightest sword of any man I've seen. I go to the gym a lot, and I've noticed some men's swords are either bending to the left or to the right, and I'm thinking their picanha would just slide right off.
