Picanha is a sirloin cap. I live in one most densely popular Brazilian immigrant communities in the US. We buy picanha's all the time. I look for the smallest ones since it's just two of us. Maybe a friend comes over too for one too?

Best to cook as a roast. One Brazilian super market in town also has grass fed one's from Australia or NZ. Not too grassy tasting either. I crank the WSM as hot as I can get it with no water pan. If I cannot get it to 375, I just cook it to around 100 F or so and then finish it n the oven. The kitchen smells amazing if you do that technique.

Alcatra is another Brazilian sirloin cut that is worth looking for.
