Hit Costco for some decent beef. After watching my co-horts smoke "rounds", I just had to do it. Seasoned overnight in the refer and into the MES. 9 hours @ 230. IT 150* F. 2 hrs Hickory 1/2 hrs Mesquite 2 hrs Alder Excellent smoke flavor profile. Just a hint of Mesquite that is not overpowering. Ready for the refer overnight again. The bottom of the roast did not cook uniformly. See following pictures. The foil should have been lowered 1 rack level maybe? Beautiful..........and smells sooooo good. Appears I should have rotated and/or turned the roast. The rare spot was sitting on the pan with the meat juices. Since this was being sliced for vac pack and future sammies, the rare part was cut off and I had it for lunch. UMMM Good. Sliced. That is what I call real sandwich material. Ready for the freezer. I'm looking forward to using this great beef to make various sammies. Now I have to figure out what to do, to uniformly cook a roast that size, for the next smoke. Should I have lowered the aluminum catch pan 1 more rack level? Rotated and flipped the roast? Probably all of the above. Something for all us new-bees to consider.
