    Hi everyone!
    Well, I had an eye operation today (Cataract). Everything went well. I had to wait in the holding room for 1 1/2 hours, I was Pi$$ed. The operation couldn't have taken 10 minutes. But I am over it now I am also able to read without contacts already. [​IMG] I had to come home early and I knew it ahead of time so pulled out a LB from the freezer to give me something to do. [​IMG]

    I think it was a 4 + pounder. I marinated in Teriyaki, garlic powder, lemon pepper, and sea salt.

    I then fired up the Webber and seared it nicely, I always try and sear.

    Into the smoker it went.

    Here it is about 2 hours later, at 120'. and a spritz of apple juice.

    While doing that I wanderd into the chat room. There were only 2 chatters Pinney and Sumo, at that time, but before long there were 14, including the Master Smoker of this site, none other than Jeff himself. What a privelige.

    It was a pleasure to meet all of you.

    Thanks all, I'll be continuing this post with the results. I think I'll pull at 130' as I like my red meat medium rare, and we won't be eating it tonight. Leave myself some room for reheating.

    Hope you enjoy!!

    Wife said it's a little raw, I said Yes but when I reheat it it will be fine. Then she asked for more. She loved it!!

    Go figure!

    LB is one of the few cuts I find is much better on the rare side I usually like med but find this cut gets to tough for me when brought to med. Just my two cents worth.

    These wiffy things are always funny. They just don't understand.[​IMG] Until they taste it.[​IMG]

    Yes, they can be tough, that's why I pull them early. It will be a little tough I'm sure. Sliced thin is the answer. If I have to pull out the slicer I will.

    I figure you can always make it more to medium or well done by reheating it but you can't reverse a welldone piece of meat.,

    Excellent. I pull mine at 130º also, wrap, then rest for an hour. Try finding some Mojo Crillio sometime and use it as a marinade. Outstanding on beef. [​IMG]

    Oh, as a side note went for a follow up for my surgery this AM. Perfect job, 20 20 vision out of that eye.

    Thanks for reading and sharing my QVIEW.

    I'm going to guess it's London Broil, gets me confused as London Broil isn't actually a cut of meat but a cooking method. Top Round is what it normally is :)
