I'm new here and new at smoking. I have had a Traeger for several years but wouldn't really call that smoking, more like flippin a switch. I need advice on what type of a beef product to put in the smoker and to be able to shred and make BBQ sandwiches out of. I'm in charge of the meat for the end of season football party for our high school. We have a nice smoker to use (I think its a Lang or something similar) and have several dads helping. We figured we need about 175lbs of meat to feed the boys and families. We are not using pork for various reasons but want beef but not brisket because of the expense. Any suggestions would help greatly. We are looking at a beef flat or eye roast. Both of these look to be 40-60 lbs each at the warehouse where we are getting our product. What a way to start with real smoker, couldnt start with a small pork butt!
