I got the urge to go to my local butcher today if not to buy just to look at meat. I wanted to try some thing different. I spotted a beauty beef all wrapped and juicy lookin. I swear the thing was whispering to me. Anywho back to reality it was a boneless cross rib roast with a nice fat cap and beautiful marbling throughout. The price $45. Pretty reasonable (around here) but if I came home with a 45 dollar roast I could just go ahead and pack. After about 15 min of badgering I got Bert (my fav butcher and friend) to drop it to 35 with the promise I leave LOL don't haggle with your butcher in front of fully paying customers.
This slab of beef is awesome.
The cutting board this slab is on measures 20x20" and the meat is about 4.5" thick.
But to the reason I am posting I have never smoked a beef roast. Any suggestions on rubs,injections, stuffings? Anything I am going to cut this down to 3 four lb roasts some for lunch meat and what have you.
Any ideas would be great
Thanks in advance
