In Reply to: Sirloin tip roast posted by Kim on May 20, 2012 at 16:07:21:
Kim I am sorry I didn't see this yesterday but in Dr. BBQ's new book he has a recipe for a 4-5 pound sirloin tip roast that sounds really good. He cooks it with a mushroom sauce, also in the smoker. The basic technique is to cook the roast at a pit temp of 235 degrees for about 3 hours-- yours is smaller so less time, to an internal temp of 135. I have not done it but sounds right.
This book--Slow Fire, the Beginner's Guide to Barbecue- is excellent and I highly recommend it. He provides great recipes, times, pit temps, meat temps when done, meat weights, number of servings. Precise and simple insructions on what to do and when.
It also has just the right number of recipes for rubs and sauces and all the meat categories. Great sides, just an excellent variety of all the things you can cook on your smoker. It also includes competition style recipes and techniques for those who want to see what those are like.
I gave it to my brother who just got a duel fuel/gas fired smoker and he seems happy. To me this book hits a sweet spot for what new and curious cooks really want to know. There are always so many variables with cooking outdoors but this is a great start.
Good luck with your cooking and thank you for the opportunity to give my book review:) -- Mary Ann
