    My favorite way is to sear it in the hot grill, then rub it, then smoke it to about 140...Slice thin against the grain..mmm good..Happy smokes !!

    Yep-REB i always grill em.Back then iwould marinate in a red wine/garlic deal and grill it.Have not seen good deals here for long time and would be a toss up between jerky or grilled.Meat stores are sure strange-for years-10 years ago some beauty londons and nothin for 5 years at least.

    I like to marinade in MoJo Crillo overnight then smoke to 140 and slice thin after a rest in the cooler. Sometimes I pin some bacon on and other times I don't

    That sounds excellent.Learn something everyday!!!!I sure wish we could get londons at a reasonable price.Definetly has to be cut like brisket across grain for tenderness.

    I used to marinade them in Itailian dressing and then grill it to med and cut it up for fajitos or just thin slices and then maybe jerky or something.

    Definitely some mojo crillio for the marinade. I usually think about removing it around 135º. Slice it thin.

    This is what I do as well. I marinate it the night before or inject it as well. My father lives with me and likes his meat well done, so I don't cook these as much as I like, because I like my london broil to be medium.
     
  12. How long does it typically take to get it to 140 on the smoker?

    Hey Fad, It really depends on the thickness of it and how long u sear..Plus the smoker temp..I just always do mine to temp--- 135-140 range.. And marinating them is also really good too.....
