    Can any one give some pointers for a 3.5 lb pot roast? I searched but didn't find anything useful.

  4. I have done bottom round roasts and prime rib roasts. Smoked @ 225 degrees for about 45 minutes a pound to the desired internal temp. I do medium rare. I smoke to an internal temp of 130 degrees then foil, towel, and cooler for about an hour. I coat my roasts with thick woosty sauce and montreal steak seasoning. Some people like to slice roasts thin on a slicer for sammies. I slice it thick and eat it just like steak. It's one of my favorites. Don't forget the Chef JJ's Au Jus!

    I would smoke it to an IT of 205* so that it will pull apart easily. Here's one I did recently, I didn't cook it long enough so now I know for sure it needs to go to at least 190* before it goes in with the veggies. It still had incredible flavor and the veggies were great!
