Eye round roasts

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Decided it was time for some roast beef for sammies after seeing all the recent posts. smile.gif Got two 7 lb roasts, trimmed them of excess fat, seasoned with kosher salt, granulated garlic and cbp. Decided to use the Bradley electric today as the Brinkmann was going to be busy too. Smoking at 230, using oak.

After smoking.

Next day, half of it is sliced. Decided to put the rest in the freezer and will slice as needed.

Looks great Dawn. Such a delicious cut if cooked right.
Have you had a sammie yet? What was your verdict cause the beef looks great to me.

Looks great Tbear! I'm guessing cooked to an internal temp of 130*? I did one for daddy's day. Sliced thin and put on top of thick italian bread and smothered in gravy. Mmmmmm.

No, I did not have a sammie. I actually did too much sampling while slicing. icon_redface.gificon_lol.gif It was delicious though. Sammies are on the menu for dinner tonight.

Yes, 130 was the IT.

Ok, just found out the kids don't like the roast beef quite that rare. icon_frown.gif Guess next time I will smoke it till it reaches 140. Oh well, live and learn.

LOL The ribs are in beef also. Yes, the shed is done and filled already.

well then you really only have one option, send both of those to me since the kids don't like it and I will be sure that it gets properly disposed of. We would hate to have the kids be forced to eat something that they don't like. PDT_Armataz_01_36.gifPDT_Armataz_01_36.gif

When finicky kids have to be factored in, and you have two separate roasts, just smoke one of them to a higher temperature for them while keeping the other as rare as you want it. How's that for hindsight?

I don't smoke for kids, so it looked perfect to me just the way you did it!

Great lookin meat TBear!!!!!

Problem easily solved, just heat up some au jus and drop the beef into that to finish cooking for the kiddies...Or just give them Mc Donalds, means more beef for us.....PDT_Armataz_01_12.gifPDT_Armataz_01_34.gif
