Charcut's smoked flatiron steak

Angus Fergusson


Ingredients

  • 1 cup fruitwood chips , such as apple or cherry wood
  • 600 g to 800 g flatiron steak
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt

Instructions

  • Soak 1/2 cup wood chips in warm water for at least 1 hour. Drain and mix with remaining dry chips on a double layer of foil. Wrap the foil tightly around the wood chips to make a flat pouch. Using a fork, pierce holes all over the pouch.
  • Preheat 1 side of barbecue to medium-high and the other side to low.
  • Brush both sides of steak with oil, then sprinkle with salt. Season with pepper.
  • Oil grill, then lay foil packet over medium-high. Barbecue steak over low, with lid closed. Smoke will start to seep out of the barbecue after about 5 min. Keep lid closed and continue smoking for 10 more min. Working quickly, lift the lid and switch the positions of the packet and the steak. Close the lid and continue barbecuing, until steak is medium-rare, 6 to 8 more min. Flip halfway through. Transfer to a cutting board and let stand about 5 min before serving.
