    when i end up with one i will cook it this way::

    Beef, Steak, Sirloin, Red Eye Cow Lick Top, Nature Boy

    For the Eggfest I cooked a couple large top sirloin steaks from Costco. Top sirloins are not the tender fatty cuts like porterhouses, rib steaks, NY strips or tenderloins. They are a little less tender, but full of good beef flavor. And at $3.79 for Choice grade, I choose these a lot! These guys were 2 inches thick...and one was close to 3....kinda like a little mini roast!

    top sirloin steaks - two inches thick
    Dizzy Pig Cow Lick Steak rub
    Dizzy's Red Eye Express Rub
    1/2 cup olive oil

    1 The day before, lightly trim the steaks and put in a large ziplock with a half cup or so of good olive oil.
    2 About an hour before the cook, I coated heavily with with Dizzy Pig Cow Lick Steak rub and the other with Dizzy's Red Eye Express.
    3 Based on the thickness of the steaks, and the fact that the Red Eye rub has sugar in it, I opted for a sear at around 600 degrees over an established glowing bed of orange coals.
    4 About 4 minutes a side gave me the sear I wanted,
    5 then I moved the steaks (mini roasts!) to the front of the cooker, which at the time was the coolest part of the cooker. Closed the bottom vent and cooked around ten minutes.
    6 A finger test revealed the 2 incher was done...pulled it off and a WooDoggies thermapen check said 128...perfect. But the thicker piece (3") still a bit squishy and went another 10 minutes.
    7 Rest 15 minutes, then slice thin against the grain and serve. At the Eggfest this was served with nothing but the juice on the plate.
