post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm smoking a beef roast for the first time. What is the beat temp and amount of time to smoke the roast. I plan on using hickory, unless someone has a better suggestion.

What cut is ? We need to know that or we can't help you.

The package just says beef roast. I didn't buy it, it was giving to me by the church. They are pretty bleak about packaging actual cut types.

Well if it's like a chuck roast with lots of marbled fat you want to take the roast to an internal temp around 200 and cook it low and slow. Smoker set to 225-250. That can take most of a day to cook. These roasts are for pulling not so much for slicing.

If it's a lean roast like top, bottom, or eye round you want to cook it however you like steak (rare, med-rare, medium, well). Rare being 125, med-rare 130-135, medium 140, well anything past that. Because these are lean roasts and you are cooking to lower temps they cook faster. I like to run my smoker at lower temps 180-200 to get more smoking time. These roast to get to an IT of 130-135 usually take 2-3 hours. They need to rest for 30-45 minutes wrapped in foil prior to slicing.

Thank you! I believe it's a chuck roast. It has a lot of fat.
