So again i got the bug to do a little smoking. our local store had trip tip on sale this week (Yes i know, not a chuckie lol), however the selection they had available looked absolutely disgusting! the best looking cut had a huge tear in the packaging and i just wasnt comfortable with purchasing it. so i decided to take another trip to good ole costco to look for some meat. Low and behold!!! i saw it... a beautiful packagae of meat that made my mouth water just imagining what it was going to taste like. i got a 5.8 pound package of beef chuck roast. I lathered it up with a worchestershire/ franks red hot sauce mixture for a bonding agent for the rub. then rubbed it up and let her rip in the fridge all night. Unfortunately i didnt get a complete before picture. the only thing i got was after the night of resting in the fridge. heres that pic. So while the meat rested i preheated my smoker and my BBQ Grill. I decided it would add some flavor to Sear the meat before throwing it into the pan of onions and beef broth. here's the sear phase. Seared it about 5 mins on each side on high on the bbq. as you can see my grill needs a bit of cleaning. had a big grill session last night with the boys. after a few beers (dont remember exactly how many) i dont think i had the capability of cleanup. haha. anyhow... i threw these bad-boys into a pan with a freshly chopped onion and a can of beef broth then into the smoker. dang im hungry now!!!! the thought of how these r gonna taste when they are done is makin me drool. haha. i will be foiling them when they get to around 145 or so and adding some more beef broth. my only question is... what do you all take yours to? 175? or to 180? oh yea here they are in the smoker. Thanks for watching all. and this time you wont have to wait an enternity for the money shot... the rest to come by the time i go to sleep tonight. happy smoking all!
