My First Eye of Round AND Now My Second LOL w/ Q-view

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

I needed some lean beef, so I tried an eye of round.  Turned out really tasty and juicy.  I cooked it at 270-300 degrees for around 2 hours.  Put some mesquite smoke on it.  I think I'll go with apple next time.  Pulled it at an internal temperature of 145 degrees.  Here is the Q-View:

Looks tasty. My favorite wood for beef is cherry or pecan. Or a blend of the two.

Looks great. I prefer to slow cook it so it stays in the smoke longer. Pull it at 140º. Run it thru some au jus and it sammie time.

Agree, but throw some oak in there. Gives the beef a great color.

Thanks for the wood advice.  I cooked another one today, didn't have the suggested types, so went with apple.  I liked the flavor alot better.  I also slathered it in mustard, gave it a heavy rub, and glazed it with a combo of honey, hot sause, and balsamic vinigar.  Turened out pretty tastey.  Now it's time to make some sandwiches like Flash!

I have two for this weekend. I usually just salt, pepper , garlic, rosemary and thyme. I like to pull at 140º and slice thin. This went over big at the last 4 shooting classes, so Sunday's class will get too.

Thanks for the kind words! Now I just have to invest in a meat slicer. Any suggestions? I'm trying to stick to the $100 or less range.

Be careful with buying a slicer. I purchased a Bella from Jcpenny, it was 100 , but I got it on sale. I thought way cool only $70. It turned out to be a $20 slicer. I took it back it was mostly plastic and won't hold a thickness. I was lucky my boss at the shooting range bought me a nice on. I will try it this weekend and post my review.

please do, I would rather spend a little more and be happy than waste a hundred bucks.

Some 'deals' can be had on Craigs List for slicers, looking in the restaurant equipment section or check Ebay.....sometimes, if the stars align, you score on some place going out of biz or upgrading. Nice looking beef for what can be a pretty tough cut...slice it thin to win!!

I had one of them about 30 years ago. The meat would push the blade away, making it cut thicker than it was set.

 

 

Nice looking Beef there, Jeffed !!!
