    I picked up a 5 lb NY Strip yesterday to smoke today so I can take it next week when I go TDY for work. I really wanted to do a lean trim wet to dry smoke chamber but that is really hard to do in SE GA in July! Everything was looking good this morning so I put it on the GOSM running right at 180* and the AMNPS providing some PMC, Cherry and Charcoal smoke. After an hour and a half I went to pull the water pan and it started pouring down rain. So much for a dry chamber! It was already humid and the rain just added to it. Oh well I'm sure it will still taste good!

    Lean trimmed and rubbed with a light dusting of Gary's Java rub and a light sprinkle of Spicy Montreal Steak seasoning last night then in the fridge to let the spices come together.
    Right before going on the smoker:

    At an hour and a half just as the rain started:

    Three hours and it's at 111*, going to pull it at 120* and rest it under a light tent:

    I will slice it into four steaks tomorrow then they will be ready for a hot sear on the grill at the hotel next week!!!

     It looks great. 5# cut in 4 steaks= 1 big steak.

    Happy smoken.

    Thanks Bama!!
    Vac/sealers are Awesome!
    Yea I'm loving this furlough too, I'm a contractor and the building we work out of is Govt. and they have to close the building every Friday until the end of Sept. so I get paid to sit at the house and smoke meat every Friday!!!!:yahoo: (except going TDY so I will miss 3 of those free Fridays)

    Thanks Dave!
    Yea food on the road gets old quick so I always try to bring some with me!

    Thanks JJ!
    I still feel like a rookie, learning new things all the time!
