    Ok, here we go. First I'm gonna do the beef roast. Being it is 24 lbs I decided to cut it in half.

    The start.


    Cut in half and rub applied.




    After letting it set in the fridge for a few hours and then sitting on the counter to warm it while I started up the smoker it's now ready for the eternal blue smoke.....It already smells good enough to eat.


    Here comes da smoke.


    Closed up and look ata that pretty blue smoke comin from the stack.


    Ok, I'll be back with more pics later.[​IMG]

    Yeah baby! And no skunks in there with it? What's up with that?

    What did you rub it with and what wood are you using?


    Are you watching the weather. It's started here in Central Iowa and headed your way

    No whole skunks on this smoke. But the rub is essence de le pew.[​IMG] lmao

    I'm using Traeger beef rub and pecan wood.

    Yes, we got hit this morning and I lost electric for a couple of hours right when I was getting the meat ready. Good thing I work good in the dark.
    And now it's getting dark out again....Dam the bad luck!!!!!

    More pics comin in a second.

    Ok. I smoked it for 2 1/2 hours and now I'm kickin the heat up to 250 degrees.

    Here's the pics of it at this point if you can see through all that pretty blue smoke...lol






    I just inserted the probe and have a temp of 94. I set the alarm to go off at 140 degrees. For rare.

    Hmmmmmmmmmm should I rap it for a bit when it rests????

    If you want rare pull at 130' 135' and wrap for a few. If it's not too late put a pan with some aujus and thinly sliced onions to catch the juices.

    Good luck!

    Excellent advice.
    Tried that once after seeing Ron do it and it was delicious. Could have filled a cup it instead of coffee.

    Can't wait to see the end of this smoke, looking great so far.

    Well I'll tell you exactly what I think about that...
    I think it looked great!
    Beautiful crust, nice, pink, juicy. I sure hope you tell us you loved it and it was amazing, otherwise it will be like crushing my vision of wonder, like when I heard Santa wasn't real.
    Really, really nice job.
