3. Teriyaki Smoked Steak Bites
A great way to enjoy sirloin steaks, this teriyaki smoked steak bites recipe enhances the flavor of the beef with the sweet and sour elements of teriyaki sauce, sugar, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, and seasonings.

4. Smoked Flank Steak
Flank steak is great for all sorts of dishes and not too heavy on the pocket, either. Two grilling steak tips:
- Don’t overcook steak. Cuts like flank are prone to drying out but smoking them until the internal temperature reaches 135℉ will keep the moisture in.
- Always let the meat rest before serving, this allows the muscle fibers to relax and the juices to spread through the entire steak. 10 minutes is usually enough for a steak.
