Other than calling it dinner, what do you call a 5 pound t-bone? Told the guy at the mexican market I wanted a thick t-bone, and what he handed over was this 5 pound t-bone roast. It's going to be my Monday night smoke one way or another, but is there a name for it? 3.47 a pound is their sale price. Not a high grade of meat, but a fry test on a little piece turned out really tasty.
