Trimming fat for roast beef???

Discussion in 'Beef' started by herms, Feb 22, 2012.

  1. Well I was talking to the meat guy today he found out I had started smoking some stuff so I asked him what he could cut me a deal on.  I ended up getting a Round eye roast choice angus for a couple bucks a pound.  It is a six pounder I would like to make Roast Beef sammies out of it.  There is quite a bit of fat on it should I be cutting that off as I really do not like a whole lot of fatty substance on my sammies.  Can i just cut it off and then place it above for the fat to drip down?  

    Thanks once again for your guys advice it has helped so much.

    Little agreement on this one?

    Your round is pretty lean.  I like to leave the fat on while smoking.  Later I remove it if I wish.

    Good luck and good smoking.
  3. Just a little one yep next time bacon gets done I have to save some for him.  

    Alrighty I think I will put the rub on and trim the fat off after it is all cooked like you suggested.

    I have never seen a large amount of Fat on an Eye Round...

    In any event, there is no reason you can't trim and let it drip from above...That is a favorite technique of SmokinAl...Good luck...JJ
