Bottom Round Roast with Q-View

Discussion in 'Beef' started by toby bryant, Nov 11, 2012.

  1. Giant Eagle had bottom round roast buy 1 get 1, so I thought I would try my hand at smoking them. This will be my first time smoking roast on the Kamado
    Kooker so be kind, lol. Just kidding, any feedback is most appreciated.

    Here are the roasts trimmed, rubbed lightly with olive oil, and coated with Montreal steak and coarse black pepper.

    Thanks for looking everyone! I cooked the roasts to an internal temp of 150°. My father-in-law has an issue with rare meat :confused: but it still turned out pretty tasty. I will definitely do this again, but pull at 130°, cool and slice thin for sammies.

  7. He said he cooked the roasts to an internal temp of 150*

    Looks good Toby! [​IMG]
     
  8. I was preparing this meal for my father-in-law for Veterans day and he has an aversion to rare meat.  Otherwise I would have cooked to 130°.
     
  9. I think it looks great!

    Nice Q!

    Did it turn out as tender as you would have liked?
     
  14. Took about 3 hours with the smoker holding temp around 250°.

  15. It was fairly tender considering it was bottom round and I cooked it 15 - 20° past what I would have for me and the wife. Definitely had to keep the slices thin, thicker the slice the tougher it got.

    That looks like it was a good smoke.  I like the veggie ideal.

  17. I used the leftover smoked broth the next day in a crock pot of pinto beans with diced onions and lots of black pepper, best beans I ever made. Might be smoking some broth the night before beans from now on.

    Sometimes the left over bits make a great next meal! We salvage drippings, boil down bones, and make some fantastic soups, sauces, at less than half the price of store bought and a bunch healthier!
     
  19. Did you trim the fat off the bottom or just score it?  Fat side UP or down?
