    If you still have time... Give this a try...JJ

    Smokey Au Jus

    1- Lg Onion,

    4-5 Carrots,

    3-4 Ribs Celery

    3-4 Peeled Cloves of Garlic

    Toss them in a pan under the Beef, and let the whole deal Smoke for one hour,

    THEN add 4-6 Cups Beef Broth,

    2 Tbs Tomato Paste,

    1/2tsp Dry Thyme (4-5 sprigs Fresh)

    1-2 ea Bayleaf

    Finish the Smoking process to the IT you want.

    While the Roast is resting, dump the pan juices veggies and all into a 2-3Qt Sauce pot and add 1Cup Red Wine, something you like to drink, and bring the Jus to a boil, lower the heat and simmer 20-30 minutes. Strain out the veggies and let the Jus rest a minute or so for the Fat to rise. Skim off the bulk of the fat then using strips of paper towel laid on top of the Jus then quickly removed, take off the last little bit of fat.

    The purpose of Smoking the Vegetable for 1 hour before adding the Broth and Herbs is...The Smoked vegetables Roast in the Dry heat concentrating their Flavors and Sweetness giving the finished Jus a Richer, Deeper, Full Flavor.

    Serve the sliced Beef Au Jus or thicken the Jus to make Gravy.

    Looks like a good start!
  6. Um, I am not exactly what cut it is.  I bought half a cow and some werent labled and this was one of them.  I believe its a arm roast but I am not 100% sure. 

    I am also planning on slicing it.  I will get pictures up after I pull it out and after I slice it.

    If you are going to Slice it...Seperate it into individual muscles along the natural seperations, after you Smoke it. Lay these pieces side ways and then slice thinly across the grain, you will have long strips rather then small squares...It will be much more tender this way...JJ

  10. Thank you for the tip JJ.  Very much appreciated.
  11. More pictures are up!

    It looks to be an arm roast. It would be from one of the front legs.
