    No worries, smoke it until you like it! Rare, Medium, Well.

    Check out this last one I made. The rub is on the bold side, though not hot. If you don't want a bold flavor, go with something milder...it will taste great just as well.


    Good luck!

    Beef: the other white meat aint it. You cook it like everything else with a good rub and alot of love. Let the smoke be with you. Good Luck

    Personally I don't believe top round has enough fat to do a long high temp smoke like a chuckie or brisket. They are however great at lower temps and sliced for sandwiches. The ones I just did I took to 135 then foiled and rested, sliced thin and it was good

    Piney has it right... only at my house it would need to do to 145...
    Try to take it to 200 like a chuck and it will be dry...tasty but dry. good luck and let us here how it goes for ya...
