A couple of weeks ago I went up to my friend Jeffs cabin in VT. A bunch of us guys go up every year to watch the Patriots (our team) beat whoever on their way to the Super Bowl. Alas, with the Pats early exit, our big game hopes were gone by the time we got there. No excuse not to have our yearly party though. And that includes beer, Scotch, lasagna, chowda, salad, cookies, hot tubbing, and steak. Usually, Joe brings the meat but this year he had to leave early so I stepped up. I bought a whole sirloin strip (a much better deal) and had the butcher cut 6 1 ½” steaks. The rest was left as a roast and you can look at that in another recipe. It was all about trying our new smoked rub in ideal testing conditions. Well, maybe not ideal because we were a little wasted by the time the steaks were ready. Anyway, I thought they tasted great and you can see that they looked good too. Straightforward grilled sirloin with a smoky twist – awesome.
