Tried my first attempt at smoking a beef roast yesterday. Misjudged how long it would take and the roast ended up well done instead of medium rare like I prefer. After a little thinking ( ouch ! ) I decided to use the meat for French Dip sammies.
Sliced the meat as thin as I could without a slicer, chopped the onion hearts from what I sliced for O rings to put in the Au Juis
Onion soup mix, chopped onion and beef broth for the Au Juis
Butter, garlic and swiss cheese for the french bread
Fried up the sweet onion in beer batter
After the Au Juis simmered a while, dropped the sliced beef in and shut down the stove, let the meat soak while the bread toasted. Miss Kelly made an awesome salad to keep some nutritional balance...
Annnnd... dinner is served
The kids standing by in case someone needs a Heimlich
All in all I'm calling this a success. Overcooked meat salvaged, lesson learned re: cook times, and a great meal. Life is good !
Happy smokin' everyone, wishing y'all the best of the beasts
