Good to see you again, BC, and those drums are a great reintroduction! :D I'm also happy to hear that the sriracha maker and Irwindale have apparently mended their fences. :wink:

OK, one last party cook for the month. This time I took a very American recipe and made some Mexican adjustments to the ingredients. I started with a sirloin tip roast.

It looks like a typical pit beef rub but I replaced the paprika with chipotle powder, used Mexican oregano, and made the sauce with lime juice instead of lemon. Not the most radical changes but since the recipe's pretty simple I worked with what I had.

The cooking method remained the same: direct heat to sear and indirect (if necessary) to finish.

Not super-rare but still plenty pink.

To be honest I really couldn't tell any difference outside of the crust having a bit more heat, but it was still a nice piece of beef.

That looks really good. Is that a pit beef horseradish sauce you used with lime in it? How was that, sounds mighty good.

Thanks! Yes, I used the basic sauce recipe and substituted lime juice for lemon. It was basically as I remembered the sauce should taste but nothing struck me as being noticeably different.

Wolf whistle!-- Well, you have served up a mighty delectable gourmet entrée here, Brad. I like the way you experiment with various herbs and spices. You've got enough recipes to make your own cookbook now! :cheers:
Got beer???

Thanks, but some of them definitely wouldn't be considered successful! :lol:
