Smoked Steaks – A Rockin’ Idea

By

Here’s an idea for smoky steaks – just in time for Memorial Day!

This requires a smoker to give the meat that amazing smoked flavor, and then finishing them off on the grill. This recipe comes to us from SmokinTex for use in their electric outdoor smokers. But you can use any smoker you can get your hands on.

See what ya think! Sounds delectable to me!

Zip’s Smoked Steak

1-1/2″ thick Sirloin
2″ Filet (or bigger)
Seasoned to taste or Zip’s Steak Rub
Add 2 oz. Hickory Wood to SmokinTex
Place steaks in smoker @ 225 degrees and smoke for 30 to 45 minutes depending on thickness and desired doneness of steak.
Once steak is in the smoker, fire up the grill – either gas or charcoal – and get it hot. I use a charcoal grill and want the coals at their hottest when I pull the steak from smoker.
Remove steak from SmokinTex and lightly reapply seasoning to taste.
Place steak over direct heat to sear the meat to your desired doneness. 2 minutes per side for medium rare.
No steak knife needed, only a fork.
