    Some of you know I have been planing to try my first roast beef...Today is the day! Its 7:30 am cold frosty morning here in northwest Ohio. Below 32* because my thermo was reading "Lo" when I turned it on.

    After I got my big smoker going(I haven't come up with a name yet)

    I put some Pecan wood chunks; that I got from Pinneywoods in an exchange, on the hot plate in the smokn' keg. Thanks Jerry!

    Everything is set,temp is rising nicely,thin blue is smelling wonderful[​IMG]

    A couple days ago at work I trimmed a whole top round and rubbed it with Au Jus seasoning packets.After trimming it weighed 10.71 pounds.

    Today I am going to inject it with more AuJus that I tried the other day on some chuck tender sammies.

    After the injecting!

    Into the smoker it goes @ 230* . 1st 2 hours with smoke...last 2-3 hours @250* with no smoke.

    Well thats the plan anyways![​IMG]
    Later SOB

    Sure do know Cedar Point. Was there last summer. It had been a while. A good friend of mine has a place up at the islands, spent a fiar amount of time up there in the past as well.

    I'm sure that is gonna be some fine tasting beef!

    Hoooraaay!! Its done and in some tightly wrapped foil to rest.
    pulled at 136* the foil it should rise to 145ish. Perfect for slicing for sammies![​IMG]

    The pecan wood is fast becoming my favorite to smoke with. It smells so rich and flavorful while its smokin' ...and the color it gives to beef is awesome! See for yourself!

    Thanks again goes out to Pineywoods for getting me some pecan...I love it! And a special thanks goes to Solaryellow for his help and knowledge!
