    After seeing all of the pictures of roast beef I had to give it a try.

    My first attempt...........

    3 Lbs. sirloin, seasoned with Montreal steak seasoning, garlic powder and onion powder.

    Two hours at 230F, internal temp at 140, used hickory chips for smoke.  I was expecting this to take 4 to 6 hours based on other posts. I double checked the temp with two different thermometers and it was a solid 140.  I was hoping the outside would have been a little darker.

    Then it snowed, again.

    Even if the outside doesn't have as much bark as you wanted those are still going to make some awesome sandwiches.
