    This weekend I also grilled out on the SnP. That's what I like about it, it's not only a smoker. Pulled out a couple huge steaks from the deep-freeze, and couldn't figure out what they were..the bone looked odd. They came from a bag labeled "steaks" from the processor.

    So, contacted the subject-matter-expert, POPS6927, and asked. He sent this reply (thanks again, Pops!)-

    "Those are what's known as 'hip-bone' sirloins. They are between the Porterhouse and the Flat Bone Sirloin, usually two to a loin. They are a NY strip on one side and a Tenderloin on the other with a T-bone on top and the hip bone in the center, between round and elongated where the flatbone forms. Absolutely the best steaks, just wastey. If you cut out that hip bone, you'll have what looks like a tailless Porterhouse and is often sold as such."

    Allright, then! Sounds great, let's stoke up the fire... Here is the SnP's smoking chamber with the charcoal-pan reinstalled for grilling-

    While the fire was burning down, I decided to throw on a pair of bone-in pork chops for work-lunches this week. Once the wood was burnt down, on they go. Steaks to be cooked rare-medium, chops well.

    The smell had the neighbor's dogs going yappy! It was good. Baked potatoes from the oven and a nice Zinfandel to go with-

    Should have taken a sliced open pic to show the perfect red and pink center, but my wife and I dove into the meal and forgot [​IMG]

    So this weekend I got dual use from the SnP~ Thanks for taking the time to look at my cooking.

    Steaks look fantastic. i wish I could find those steaks, but I've never seen them either. Interesting info from pops. Can't beat a glass of red wine with a steak, that's for sure!

    Looks delish!

    So far the best steaks I've ever made (and perhaps ever had) were a couple porterhouses on the SFB of my offset. So I know you're eatin' good [​IMG]

    Nice looking steak! What a score to get that particular cut, I didn't even know such a particular piece existed.
    Would have loved to see the inside but I completely understand, sometimes some things are so good you completely forget about grabbing that camera.

    Neither did I FiU~ never seen that in a retail store, butcher shop or steakhouse in my life. I guess that's the good part about going in halves with someone and buying a beef. The processor askes you how you want your side cut up and you GET IT ALL.

    We asked for as many steaks as possible, followed by roasts, then burger. Also got the oxtail sectioned and a brisket out of it.

    This has to be one of the best steaks and as POP'S said, definitely like a Porterhouse. The bones just looked funny.
