Sorry for the delay in signing-up since my initial inquiry. I don't go on my computer every day, too busy working in my vegetable garden and other outside chores. I'm a Marylander by birth, but a Texan by choice. I lived in Houston for 28 wonderful years (1966-1994) until my Texas wife passed away in 1992. Then I moved back to the Maryland area for family reasons. Living in Texas, there was never a need to do my own "Smoking or Barbecuing" cause we had a BBQ place on every other corner, seemed like. I was gifted an original "Smoke N' Pit charcoal smoker in 1974 before the company was bought by Baxter Brinkman. Then I was gifted a electric smoker from Redi-Smoke in 1990, but never used it. Then when I relocated to the Maryland area, you couldn't find good BBQ anywhere. BBQ to these people was "Sloppy Joes" on a bun. So I took out my Smokers and started a new food craze in these here parts. Family and friends couldn't believe what they had been missing and everyone had to have one. So I contacted Jim Jamison of Burkhead Mfg. at the time and bought a pallet load of his electric smokers and sold them at cost to family and friends. I initially found SmokingMeatForums on Google, trying to find a recipe for "Smoked Sirloin". You may be familiar with a Texas Restaurant with the name of Texas Land and Cattle Company. I periodically get back to Texas whenever I can. On one business trip, I took a business associate to dinner there one evening and we had their house specialty, the Smoked Sirloin. My friend was trained as a chef in Bavaria, Germany. He said he has never had a steak that tasted that good. Now that's a testimonial coming from a European chef. I concur, although I prefer a good rib-eye, marinated with garlic powder, onion powder, season-all salt, pepper and Worchester sauce and prepared on a good charcoal grill. But I digress. So I found the recipe for the smoked sirloin on your "forum" and here I am. I haven't tried the recipe yet, but I will. Anyway, I'll try and become somewhat of a regular to your forum because all my friends and relatives are always looking for new recipes.
