    Here are some pics from my smoke from last weekend where I smoked up pork instead of beef. It wasn't roast beef in the the end but roast pork slices are pretty good to. This is the thread that I am talking about

    Here are some pics.


    Here is the thicker cut pieces.


    Here is a sandwich I made up for supper with the thick cut pieces. I froze two packages and I might try frying some of them and see how they taste.


    Slicing the other roast thin for lunch meat.




    Three packages all ready for the freezer and hopefully saved for a fishing trip or something. We saved one packaged out for eating this week.


    All in all it turned out good after my initial mix up. Now I can't wait to do a real roast beef.

    Man it all really looks great. The sammie looks delicious! Can't wait to see what you can do with a beef roast.

    Looks like it sliced up nice and easy.  I'll definitely be doing some of that for work lunches.

    p.s.  you're too skinny to be doing this as well as you do!

    That's Great & it looks Great too!

    Funny how sometimes a mistake can introduce something real good to you & your buddies (US).

    Thanks RB,

    I am going to try and fry up some of the thicker pieces. It won't the the same as when you cure your loins and make smoked pork chops but at least I will get the idea since you like them so well.

    Thanks guys.

    Oh man I like your thinking. I might have to go get some good buns, cheese and some dipping sauce and try that out. Oh and onions and green peppers. Yum Yum

  12. If that were in the deli, they would be getting $11.99 a pound for it.  Looks awesome.

    Now you will have some fine sandwiches to me. But next time I bet you look in the beef section for a sirloin tip roast Ha Ha.

    Next time I won't just look at the tag the butcher put on saying sirloin tip roast I will actually look at the package it came and see if it says beef or pork. haha Stupid thing is even when I was handling it I knew it was pork and not beef but I guess I just didn't think much about it until someone pointed it out. Oh well I can be the guinea pig and we found out that yes you can make some nice lunch meat out of a pork roast as long as its a nice lean one like the sirloin roast. Oh well I can get a good chuckle out of it now since everything ended well.
  15. I love Roast Pork sandwiches... Especially a Hot Roast pork sandwich... with some nice sautéed spinach, or dandelions, or broccoli rabe... I say you are on the right track with that!!!!!

    As Usual Nicely Done!
