Steak & Seasoning:
  • 1-2 Whole Picanha with fat cap
  • 1 tbsp of Sea Salt
  • 1 tbsp of Black Pepper

  1. Lather your picanha with oil then season with salt, pepper and garlic powder thoroughly. Set in the fridge while you preheat the smoker.
  2. Preheat your Oklahoma Joe’s Smoker to 250F for indirect cooking. Add some hickory or mesquite wood chunks for added smoke flavor if desired.
  3. Add your picanha to the smoker and cook for about 1 hour or until it reaches 125F internal. When you are 10-15 minutes before done, add garlic cloves and serrano peppers to the smoker to smoke. When steak & veggies are done, pull off and let rest for 12-15 minutes.
  4. In a bowl, mix all ingredients for the Spicy Smoked Chimichurri sauce.
