    These make an awesome roast beef dinner![​IMG]

    Rubbed with SPOG and wrapped in plastic overnight

    Made up some of chefJJ's au jus

    Beef and au jus into the MES @200 with some hickory pellets in the AMNPS

    After 2hrs beef was almost ready so I took the au jus in and simmered it with red wine

    Beef was at 120F, put a sear on all sides

    Wrapped in foil to rest

    Sliced! Final temp was 132F

    Served with some mushrooms and horseradish, mmmmm.

    Rest assured there will be some amazing sandwiches made tomorrow

    I like the horse raddish accompaniment. Horse raddish just wakes up beef! Oysters too!

    Great looking plate.

    Oh yeah. I do a french dip with au jus, and I put grilled bell peppers onions mushrooms and provolone cheese. I call it a cheese steak, most folks in La. don't get many real cheese steaks so it works...>LOL

    That looks great! still have to to try chef JJ's au jus.  POINTS!!  I agree with foam, Horseradish and beef make a great combo.  Slice up those leftovers (if there are any) and make pit beef sandwiches with tiger sauce (horseradish mayo)!

    Really looks great! I smoke eye of round but often go for just a three pounder or so for my wife and I. For the rub I use a basic Memphis base with ancho chili powder, onion powder annd granulated garlic powder. Also freshly ground Tellicherry and yellow mustard seed, and a bit of arrow root. I sit it overnight. Smoke at 225 over hickory or cherry until 125 and I don't sear because it's for sandwiches after resting. I have to search for that au jus, looked awesome. Love what you did. Going to try the roast beef dinner soon as you did.

    Btw, I use that rub with chuck roast too, but like you did I sear that afterwards on the grill. Have put that out at BBQs and it goes over great as a beef dinner. Of course, a lot of rubs will work fine. The beauty of these cheap cuts is not just the price but how intense the beef flavor us. They'll stay cheap as long as most people keep cooking them into dry leather :) thanks for your post!
