I'm going to do these on the kamado using a manual rotisiree (my hands), at about 375-400 until medium rare.

The picanha is about 2.5lbs only. I had somewhere between 2-3 lbs of waste. The rest was the center section of the sirloin butt.

It's a good alternative size wise, but different flavor from tri-tip. Both are great!
