Smoked New York Steak Roast

Thinking about smoking something for a New Years dinner.  Many of  the supermarkets have New York Steak roasts on special and they are great smoked and then finished on the grill or in the oven.  In the recipe, it calls for your favorite beef rub.  Mine is always, Barbarians Steak Rub from Barbarian’s Restaurant in Toronto, Canada.  What are you cooking up for the New Year?

Grilling and smoking most anything is a passion, especially steaks, chicken, lamb and seafood.  Grilling is a favorite way for cooking. Originally I had an electric grill because for some reason using gas frightened me. Chicken, and not the food type! Maybe it was because in my early years we had to light the pilot light and I was always afraid it would blow up in my face. Several years later my talented hubby was badgered into converting my electric cook top over to gas.  He took on the task and ran a gas line to the kitchen and installed a gas cook top. Hooray! There’s been no going back.

Mr. Hubby loves smoked foods and has been begging me for over a month to smoke something.  Well, since I am going to be deserting him for a long weekend to visit Oklahoma I decided to finally spoil him.  I’m off to see how my 97 year old aunt is doing and maybe do a few repairs around her house.  It’s amazing at her age that she still lives in her own home.  The hubby is staying behind.

So, back to that smoking beef.  It’s already been in the CookShack Smoker for an hour and half with apple wood slowly charring away at 225 F.   I don’t like as much smoke flavor as the hubby so it’s now been transferred to the heated 170 F convection oven to slow cook for another 1 hour.  After that just turn off the oven at let rest for 2 more hours until it reaches medium rare.  That will give me plenty of time to cook up some twice baked potatoes, another of his favorites.

This big chunk of meat is way too much for just two people but I figured he would nosh on it for the next few days and not think too much about me being away.  You see, he’s pretty much helpless when it comes to preparing food or cooking.  But he does know how to make a nice steak sandwich so he won’t starve.  Between that and a bagel in the morning at the local bagel café life will still be good.

Smoking is easy the way I do it because I kinda’ cheat.  My smoker is an electric Cookshack Smoker and that makes it much more simple.  While the roast was in the smoker I was able to go off and run a few errands and get some extra treats for the hubby to enjoy.  Now back at home it’s in the oven slow cooking away at 170 F for that hour.

The recipe itself is quite easy.

1 (6 pound) New York Roast
Season liberally with your favorite beef rub
Season with fresh ground sea salt
Season with fresh ground pepper

Smoke at 225 F for 1 hour. Then roast at 170 F for around 1 hour.  Then turn off oven and let rest for 1.5 hours without opening the oven door.   For medium or medium well just let it cook longer at 175 and then rest for 2 hours.  Then for crisping up and searing the outside, just place on the hot grill for an additional 20 minutes.

Lets talk about the two sides of me. I am a Gemini just so you know. The first side of me is the cooking and entertaining part. This is a major part of my life and I wouldn't be fulfilled without it. Of course, we all have to eat, but the main part of cooking for me is entertaining and sharing fun and flavorful foods with great friends. Dinner parties, happy hours and well, most anything to do with food is where I begin to enjoy. My other side, the artsy side is a craving for art, painting and photography. Maybe this is my Gemini left side of the brain?? Since starting to write a Blog I've picked back up what hubby calls my big ass camera and started carting it around again. He’s always afraid I will ask him to carry it. I keep thinking that when I retire (?#&*!!!) that I will have time to read all the photography books in my library and become a superb photographer. Wishful thinking.

    This sounds great and looks even better! This roast will make a perfect “centerpiece” for your New Year’s Day dinner. I’d hope for leftovers. It will make one heckuva sandwich for lunch the next day. 🙂
