    Hello all, 

    I like almost everyone here am i big fan of meat, especially red meat! I love Roast beef sandwiches for lunch at work and my parents love fresh roast beef so i decided to kill those two birds with one smoke! I bought a whole sirloin tip roast at Sam's Club for $3.77/lb.and smoked it and sliced it with my deli slicer for the sandwiches. here is the pics!

    Here is the roast rubbed with Montreal seasoning and soaked over night with Worcestershire sauce.

    This is my new roasting/rib rack i recently bought (weber brand). i roasted on this rack with a foil pan underneath to catch drippings!

    Getting it ready on the rack to go out to the smoker. I let it come up to close to room temp while i was building the fire.

    Building the fire in my WSM 22.5 inch. I used KBB and mini pecan splits/chunks.

    Got my smoker up to 250 degrees and put my roast on the WSM.

    Smoked the roast for 3.5 hours @ 230-250 degrees

    Threw it in the oven for about 40 minutes at 325 degrees to take the roast to 138 degree IT

    Then let it rest for 45 minutes wrapped in foil until the IT was 144 degrees

    Sliced the roast after letting it rest. I was going for a nice medium.The pic is a little pinker than it was to my eye and i think i hit my doneness level.

    Sliced the smaller end with my deli slicer and put in a container to take to my parents' house. It was about 2.5 lbs of sliced roast beef. Between 5 of us there wasn't any beef left by the time for the Redskins game!

    Thanks for looking at my attempt at medium roast beef! i hope you enjoyed it!

    Happy Smoking,

    Oh man... That looks great! Love some smoked roast beef. Last one I made was a 17 pound bottom round flat so I still have plenty stashed in the freezer. You'll never go back to store bought again!

    Thanks all for the compliments!

    Bear, if i can make my food look as good as yours look then i have done well!

    I love to make my own roast beef because i get what i want for about 25% of the price!

    I just looked Friday.

    The best price we had around here for RB lunch meat was $7.98 a pound, but that's not smoked !!

    Yup---All we need is a smoker, a slicer, a vacuum packer, and a freezer!!

    Keep up the Great Work!

    Here the roast beef goes for about $10-$12 /lb. so if i can make it for $4 lb then I'm tickled!

    Check amazon for both! i got a cheepy meat slicer for like $65 and it does pretty good and a nice food saver for like $80.

    the food saver has paid for itself already buying meat in bulk and freezing it!

    thanks all!
