attempt at roast beef for sammiches

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

This thread here inspired me to try some roast beef for sammiches.

http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/114228/first-try-at-roast-beef-boy-was-it-a-success-lots-of-pictures

 

 I don't have a deli slicer so not sure how i'm going to slice it thin.

 

Since this is just a test for myself all I got was a 2lbs choice beef of eye round roast.  

 

Marinated it over night with some worcestershire then used a mixture of traeger prime rib rub and sweet rub.

 

rubbed and ready to go in the fridge for the night

after about 3 hours at around 180-220 it reached internal temp of 135.

tried to save the beef drippings to make an au jus but there weren't any...  oh well

Great looking roast beef. You are going to have some great sammies with that

The blue silver is normally just real rare meat from my experience.  Was the color toward the center?  I like my steaks Blue/Black   outside charred and middle almost raw.  You can always a can of beef bullion to sauteed onion and garlic to make a bit of juice.  If you want it thicker add a bit of Roux or a little cornstarch.

Now your beef looks good and like Ahron said Nice Knife to. You should look on E-Bay for a good slicer. I got one a while back for lik 25.00 and it works very well.
