Our local Safeway grocery store has round tip roasts on sale BOGO. So I picked up (4) for $48.00. I think that two of them will go into pop's brine for some pastrami. the other two are going to go into the freezer. The fat cap has been trimmed on these so they are really lean. May use the other two for jerky.
Round tip roasts, the final chapter!

That's what I was thinking too! For the price I should do all four roasts and go get 4 more for the freezer!
Tonight I threw together a 2 gallon batch of Pop's Brine and put the 4 (injected) round tip roasts into the brine. In ten days or a few more we'll be ready to smoke some pastrami! Better go harvest some juniper berries and get them dried!
They came socked so I will hang them when I smoke them.

Rolled roasts in coriander, pepper and mustard seed.
I pulled the roasts out of the smoke when they hit 165* IT. I didn't get a pick because I couldn't get the flash to work. The iGrill and Mav 732 worked flawlessly. The alarm feature on the iGrill is great, allowed me to sleep until they were done. Sliced pics will be in a few days. I like to let them mellow a bit before slicing and packaging.
