    Decided to do something for my folks for Christmas that I knew they would love! Smoked their Christmas dinner! Our local Fred Meyer had $3.49 per/lb on New York Strip (bone in... but very small thin bone). So I picked up a 10 lb. one for them and a 7 lb. one for us! [​IMG]

    Oh... and Safeway had a buy one get one on chuckies.... so had a couple of them as well! Rubbed the NY Strip with fresh garlic, fresh rosmary, salt, and pepper. One chuckie got Tony Chacharo's and the other got Old Bay.

    (wife took the camera to work and it got broke-ted [​IMG]so I am limited to cell phone shots, so only one before and after pick)

    Now THATS! a holiday meat "platter"! [​IMG]


    NY Pulled at 145° internal temp. My folks like theirs medium well to well, so I pulled it at med. rare so that as they reheat it in their oven it will end up where they want it. I am going to Vacuum seal it once it is cold.


    The chuckies I took to 195° internal temp. and they are resting for 1 hr. before getting tossed in the fridge. They will be for slicing and using in sammy's and other meals this week.



    Even got a nice looking smoke ring! [​IMG]

    Looks great [​IMG].  I love the taste of smoked beef.  I wonder if our Safeway had the same BOGO deal on chuckies.  I might need to stop in tomorrow.

    Thanks for the photos.

    I was just looking through the local grocery adds and NY Strip is on sale and I was wondering if I could smoke one and if it would be anything like a prime rib? Or would it be better to treat it like a brisket or chuckie and bring it up to higher temps?
  11. I would do it like a prime rib. It is a tender piece of meat and probably doesn't need the long low and slow treatment.

    Definately treat it like a prime rib Ross. The NY is very, very similar to prime rib - to me the main differance is you have less marbeling of fat in the middle of the meat with the NY strip.

    Great looking meat, Johnny!

    Ross, that strip is nearly as tender as a prime rib but with a more beefy flavor.  Med Rare for sure!

    Good luck and good smoking.
