    Smoked IT 165, wife likes it a little more on the done side.  I used Hickory and never let my temp get above 250.

    That's one good looking roast... Congrats on getting the bug.... As my wife says it is a illness, (for me at least)

    Look forward to seeing more of your Q!

  9. Nice.  Did you cover it or anything in the smoker?  I have aluminum pans like that but I was considering covering my meat with aluminum foil loosely so that the smoke still gets in but won't dry it out.  ??

    No need to cover.  Just smoke low and slow.  For a sirloin tip, I generally pull it at a much lower temp, about 125-130, but then again, I like my roast beef to be on the rare side.
