    So we had this little nugget in the freezer. A boneless 2 1/2 pound cross rib roast.

    Threw a beef-broth and bourbon injection/marinade solution together. Shot it up, rubbed it down and put it in the fridge overnight.

    And for you folks that think i'm not a big fan of sides, my wife saw all this activity and decided some homemade egg noodles would go great with a smoked cross rib roast.

    This guy will only take about 3 hours to get where i want it, so i'll be throwing it on later today. I'll let you know how it turns out :)

    If that's the cut I think it is, it's one of my all time favorite cuts of meat. Those egg noodles look great too. You're eating well tonight!

    Someone referred to a beef chuck cross rib roast  as "poor man's prime rib" in another thread, so i pretty much had to give it a shot when I found it in the freezer the other day :) And yeah, her homemade egg noodles are so much better than store bought. She is going to have me catch her a pan full of drippings for the gravy. i expect full-on food coma by about 7 tonight!

    We're both smoking now. 2 hours in and the internal temp is at 133 according to my trusty Maverick 733. I should have time to finish this very nice Alec Bradley Nica Puro before it hits 145.

    I'll try and get this post done before the food coma kicks in...

    Off the smoker and wrapped in foil to rest for about an hour.

    Well, let's see what we have here...

    Oh yeah, i think that will work.

    plate it up!

    That turned out nice and tasty!! I love those homemade noodles also.  That roast is from the Chuck.  They are also known as boneless beef arm roasts.  If you can get your hands on a bone in cross-rib roast it has some tasty ribs attached.  Homemade noodles, gravy and that nice beef roast is one nice meal.  Reinhard

    It was good, but when I get in the mood for a small roast I will do a tri tip. Much more tender and flavorful than the cross rib roast imho.
