  1. as this is my first stab at beef , i don't know what to use for a good rub, i really like mckormicks steak rub and am thinking using it as an experiment. the other question i should ask is should i foil it for a while? or just leave it in the smoke, thanks in advance

    As for rubs, simpler is often better, especially for a good flavored meat as you have. Don't try to cover it up, just enhance the pepper, garlic, salt, and maybe some onion powder, which gives a hint of sweetness. Then you may want to add a bit of paprika (mostly for color) & chili powder, but that's about as far as I would go until you find what your taste buds like.

    I would go with open grate smoking until an internal temp of 135-140* is reached...for rare to med/rare, then remove it to rest. I would at least rest it under a foil tent before slicing, just to reduce the rate of heat loss. I generally give a large cut a full wrap in foil, unless I put in into a pan and cover it to braze after the smoke, example: pork butt, picnic.

    If you've never tried beef smoked, you'll be in for a huge treat!

    eric is on the money,

    the basic Montreal seasoning is good, or just use kosher salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. No foil, and take it to 135-140, and then let it rest before slicing

    I did one of these a few weeks ago and posted some pics(it was awesome), check out that thread if you want for any other info(i dont have time to post a link right now)
