    Hi guys,

    Ok... this is my first post here, so here it goes. 

    Just got my new WSM 22" smoker, and first cut to try was the rump cap - the Brazilian picanha.

    No preparation, no seasoning, but the smoke itself... 4.5 hours at 225 F over cherry wood, and it turned out to be absolutely fabulous!

    Served it along with a pineapple BBQ sauce, home made, of course...

    That looks tasty!!      Is mid-well your preference ?  Because if not, rumps are delicious at mid-rare to medium.

    Additionally, you might try cutting across the grain, makes for a more tender slice of beef.

    Thanks!!! And it was VERY tasty.

    Yeah, well, this time it was such a preference. As for cutting - my mistake... corrected later on :)
