If you’ve never had the joy of experiencing picanha, then this is the recipe for you. Our Smokey BBQ Beef Rump is a glorious cut of beef that is great for cooking on the BBQ and sharing with friends over a few drinks. Our Smokey Beef Rump is easy to recreate at home in just 4 steps.
Smokey Beef Rump
- Prepare your barbecue using the indirect heat method. You want the temperature to be between 140-160 C.
- Rub your seasoning of choice into the picanha, spreading it evenly.
- Add to the barbecue directly in the middle with the coals either side. Place your meat thermometer into the centre of the beef and close the lid.
You want to cook the beef until the internal temperature reaches 58C.
- Remove from heat once the internal temperature has been reached and leave to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving. Picanha goes great with a chimichurri dressing or a garlic butter that melts all over the beef.
