    Well, today's the day. I've got a 3-4lb roast about 2" thick that we though we'd try out in the smoker. I put it in a marinade yesterday, ziplock bag & into the fridge.
    Marinade:
    Soy sauce
    Worcestershire
    rosemary
    coriander
    garlic
    shallot
    blk pepper
    cayenne
    brn sugar
    water
    I'll bring it to room temp then inject it today before searing it on the grill, then into the sidebox smoker with some cherry wood til it hits ~130F. I figure I'll put it on the hot side of the smoker since it shouldn't need the low & slow approach.
    I usually do these on the grill, but just have an itch to smoke something!

    Any suggestions contrary to what I have planned?

    Sounds good but I think I would go low and slow.

    I am with RIP. You are dealing with a pretty lean cut of beef. Low and slow is the Dr's perscription.

    Well I'm certainly up for the low & slow method. What the heck, I've got the time today, and I wanted to try something different anyways, so why not.
    Like I said, I usually do these on the grill and after reading http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/for...dium+rare+temp
    I figured they didn't need the low & slow approach.

    I'm getting so hungry reading through all these threads, it's not even funny!

    In that thread you'll see he said "the london eh not bad but better grilled" I may be wrong but I would go low and slow.

    Yup, gonna go about 225f on the smoker and let her melt! Did I mention, I'm getting reaaalllly hungry?! I think low & slow it can't help but get tender! We'll know tonight for sure. [​IMG]
     
  7. I did a London Broil last week and low and slow is the best way to go...I did it a little different though..the last hour I wrapped in Foil with some butter and orange and apple juice..and it was melt in your mouth! I have grilled the London Broils before, after marinating all night, and smoking it is the way to go!
