    We had a nice London Broil thawed and I decided to throw it in the smoker. First I gave a medium dose of Rub, and Montreal Steak Seasoning, then wrapped and put back in the fridge for a few hours.

    MES smoker, preheated to 265º,
    preheat was 1.5 hrs.
    Outdoor Ambient 54º
    MES cook temp set to: 230º
    Meat Start Temp 43º (I wanted it cold to get a longer time in the cooker).
    It took about 105 min. to get the London Broil to 130º
    Total time in cooker about 3 hours.

    I usually try to be very quick and organized when loading the MES, the idea is to have the hatch open the minimum amount of time so the MES can get to set temp faster. Unfortunately I was doing multiple things and did the water and meat load at the same time, I usually load the water wait 15min then load the meat. But since it was 54º I decided not to worry about it.

    MES temp drop to 193º, 15 min. and it was at 215º, 20 min. at 225º.
    Approx time for the London Broil to hit 130º was 100+ min. I turned the MES heat down to 135º and temp climbed to 140º, at this point I double wrapped in foil and left the MES temp at 135º, where meat temp bounced between 135-142º.

    The London Broil stayed in the MES another 75-80 min. then moved to kitchen oven, unfoiled and put under broiler 5 min. on each side to get a crisper surface. When unfoiled I drained off about 1/2+ cup of meat juice.
    Heated the meat juice with a little of my kicked up BBQ sauce.
