    A while back I did a huge roast smoke for sliced roast beef, I scaled it back a little this time but i figured I'd show it anyways.  For anyone who hasnt tried a roast yet, it really is a must.

    9.5lb top round with a basic beef rub overnight, then smoked at 215 for about 4hours until 140 internal.  Immediately chill overnight, slice the next day.  I used a slicer, but once its chilled I think even a thin sharp carving knife would do the job.  enjoy!

    Rub on.


    After the night in the fridge


    After the smoke, ready for a wrap and into the fridge again overnight





    id be glad to answer anyones questions.  This stuff is so good

    What cut of beef did you use?  Mine did not turn out as tender as desired so I am going to try using meat tenderizer.  I was also thinking that maybe I need to smoke longer for 8-10 hours but for sandwiches etc I like the meat med rare.  I have a boneless cross rib roast I have out thawing.  Please advise

    If you can get a sirloin tip they are even better!

    Once in a while the stores around here will have tri tip, they are the best.

    Beautiful. Wish I had a nice slicing. My electric fillet knife will have to do.

    Great I just got back from bought a tritip at Smart and Final Wholesale was only $3.00 a pound 14 pound whole piece of meat.  A chef was there purchasing items and recommended it.  I will cut it into smaller pieces.  Beautiful cut plenty of fat on the outside.   I will post pictures when smoking is done.  I have promised hubby first a raost cooked in the Crock Pot.  I cook that in red wine apple beer or juice and seasoning.  He misses the old fashion pot roast.  Have been smoking all summer.  It keep the house so much cool to smoke outside.  So I would smoke a turkey breast, roast and spare ribs all at the same time and then we would just heat and eat all week long.   Thank you.
