While strength training is good for all bodies, the general rule of the bodybuilders' build/cut phasing is that cardio drops fat.
Cut back your ST to 2-3 times a week quality movements, and rev up your cardio to 4-5 times a week.
Make sure you're eating enough. The whole "10 times your bodyweight" thing is not really a good guide. Those kind of rules never work for the majority of people. For a very active guy with a physically demanding job, 3k sounds potentially reasonable.
How long have you been eating 2600-2900 and what has been your weight loss/gain/stay pattern while eating that? The best advice always comes from trial and error. If you've done that for weeks and not lost anything, you probably need to cut back a little.
