Beef eye round roast

Discussion in 'Beef' started by retired lawman, Apr 24, 2013.

  1. I found a couple of beef eye round roasts on sale at the local Food Lion, and thought they would be about the right size for a small family dinner (just under 2lbs each).

    I put a quick dry rub on it, with garlic powder, A1 dry rub and Slap Ya Mama, both sides, then wrapped it in bacon

    I moved it out to the "Oklahoma Joe" smoker and hooked her up to the meat thermometer

    I used oak and maple wood, keeping the smoker around 225*, and it took about 4 hours to bring the roast up to 155* internal

    After it came off, I foiled it, wrapped it in a towel and let it rest three hours, while I prepped the fixins

    From our garden last year, canned potatoes and green beans 

    Dippin sauce, with onions and mushrooms

    Oven roasted potatoes, and a little more bacon in the beans

    Grilled corn on the cob

    Decent smoke ring, not a lot of bark with the maple wood

    Finished product of the days labors. No complaints, and no leftovers [​IMG]
