  • 2 lb top sirloin steak

Teriyaki Marinade

  • 1/4 c. teriyaki sauce

  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • In a small mixing bowl mix together all ingredients for marinade.
  • Trim steak and cut into 2'' pieces. Place in ziploc bag and pour marinade of the top of steak. Squeeze as much air out as possible and shut bag. Place in refrigerator for at least 8 hours or overnight.
  • When ready to smoke the steak bites prepare smoked to 225 degrees according to manufacturer's directions.
  • Place directly on the smoker grates or on a rack. Discard remaining marinade. Smoke for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until the internal temp is 135 - 140 degrees F. Remove from smoker and serve immediately.


What is the best steak to use?
For this recipe, I recommend using a good top sirloin. Because they are slowly smoked they are tender and juicy. Other cuts you could use:
  • New York Strip
  • Ribeye
  • Tenderloin
