It is that time of year again to make massive cuts of meat over the fire (although it’s like that at our house all the time). I grabbed myself this amazing prime New York Strip Roast and smoked it over hot Cowboy Charcoal until it was internally ready. After that, we seared it off over flames and served with a simple Garlic Chive Mayo. Get ready for this epic cookout!
What is the New York Strip Roast?
If you are not familiar with the New York Strip, then you should know that it is my favorite cut of steak. It is full of flavor but lean enough that you get a great meatiness. For this cook, we left the roast uncut with a massive New York Strip Roast.
This is basically the strip loin with the fat cap on top. Most butchers and grocery stores have this cut ready for you to cook. Just make sure to grab all the other ingredients and your Cowboy Charcoal before you get ready to make this New York Strip Roast.
The Plan of Attack
For this cook, we are going to do a classic reverse sear. Firstly, we will season the steak with the old and faithful salt, pepper and garlic. Let the seasoned meat sit in the fridge for 30 minutes so that the loose seasoning sticks to the meat better when cooking.
Next, we are going to preheat a smoker to 275F using some Cowboy Charcoal and cherry wood chips. Add the roast to the smoker and cook for about 1-2 hours until it reaches 115F internal for medium rare. While it’s cooking though, make sure to spritz with the beer & hot sauce mixture. This will add flavor and keep it moist while cooking.
After the New York Strip Roast has finished cooking, pull it off and let it rest for 15 minutes. This will help to cool down the cooking and keep any extra moisture from leaving the steak. Mix up your Garlic Chive Mayo and slice into your steak for the final step!
Let’s eat this New York Strip Roast
In the end, we got a killer New York Strip Roast with tons of flavor and an amazing Garlic Chive Mayo sauce for dipping. Share this recipe with family or friends during the holiday season. Cheers!
