13 Lbs. Top Sirloin for Roast Beef w/ qView!

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

So I got a Cabelas' 12" commercial grade slicer for Christmas and I need something good to try it out on.

 

My daughter's birthday party is Saturday so I bought a top sirloin to do hot roast beef sandwiches.  I also picked up some pork belly to try making my own bacon for the first time but that will be another thread.

 

Plan is to SPOG this bad boy with worceshetirela;ksdjf sauce.  Smoke on the mini with hickory?  Pull at 135 let rest, slice in half, throw in freezer for a couple hours and slice away.

 

Since we want to serve them hot should we take the shaved roast beef and put in a crockpot with some beef broth?

 

Here is the specimen...

 

 

 

And here is the slicer...

 

 

 

I will be smoking it tomorrow.

Nice slicer. Beef broth will work just fine. You don't want it any hotter than you want the meat as it will cook it more.

Happy smoken.

Looks great.   Can't wait for more pics.   As Dave alluded to, you don't want the beef to cook in the au jus.  If too hot, the texture of the meat will actually change as it par boils.  I'll usually whip up a pot of au jus and bring it to a low boil, then turn it off and let it start to cool.   When I can dip my pinky in and hold it there for a few seconds it's good to go.

Looks like you have it under control.

Keep the lid shut.

Happy smoken.

Got a pork tenderloin on at the same time.  136 on the loin.  It's been hard to keep a good temp with the wind, low.....
