My first real smoke

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

This was my first real smoke. I picked up some beef roast on sale. So yesterday I rubbed in some garlic salt and salt and pepper and injected some beef broth and let it set over night. Today we wanted to have it for dinner so I started it about 10am and let it get to 200 rubbed the bbq rub on it.

I have a electric brinkman that I just got and built a pid controller to control the temp. Set the pid at 205 and it held real nice at 200.

Used the digital temp to watch it. It cooked for 6 hours and internal temp came to 145 so I took it out and foil wrapped it and let it sit for 20 minutes, the smell was killing me and the family lol.


Sliced it up for roast beef sandwiches and it was wonderful. Only thing is wife sliced it with the grain instead of across it but was still wonderful.

yes I ate that whole plate, LOL
