Top Round Roast

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
but couldn't pass this one up. What internal temp should I be looking for? Smoker temp? Figure to rub With just Greek seasoning unless someone else has an idea.
Thanks.

Never did a top round roast before..but here is a link to a sirloin tip roast I did..maybe that will give you some ideas...the only change I would make with mine is the seasoning...that steak seasoning was too peppery...
Hope this helps...
Later

Re: Top Round Roast

Internal temp depends on how done you want it and how much fat content is in the meat. 140* to 145* will bring it around medium. If laced and marbled with fat, you can cook it like a Brisket

Be sure not to use AC Vineger in your mop or spray when cooking Beef! It will dry it out.

Ok here it is..pics are in reverse order for some reason. This is the 4lb Top Round Roast, as you can see there is very little fat cap, think I should throw some bacon on before smoking? The rub is just EVOO and Cavender's Greek Seasoning. It is now vacuum sealed and in the fridge.

Re: Top Round Roast

It's a cut used for pot roast, so braising would be a good plan.

Re: Top Round Roast

Well the final results...Took meat to 155*. Let it rest for 1/2 hour. The taste was excellent, but the meat was not very tender. Took about 4 hours at 233*. Hardly any smoke ring..seems I have changed brands of chips. Hardly any smoke, no ashes in wood box, just looks like charcoal. Anyway meat has been vacuumed and put in freeze for another day. :(

Re: Top Round Roast

Chris,

It is unwise to spray or mop Beef with ANY type of vinegar.

Re: Top Round Roast

i was thinking that was an awfully good looking cut of meat for some jerky. put a little smooth moove on it and it should last about 3/4 of a day.
