    Hey there kkw515,

    A guideline is about 1 to 1.5 hours per pound, of course a lot depends on the shape of the piece of meat and the surface area to mass ratio. As stated above get a good thermo and leave plenty of time, some pieces of the same cut take less or more time than others. As for a finished temp for roast beef if you are slicing, a good temp would be about 140 degrees - medium rare!

    Hope this helps. BTW head on over to Roll Call and give yourself a proper introduction to the forum.

    Take care, have fun, and do good!
