    A little while back I bought a few whole sirloin tip roasts. They had a outstanding deal on them so I stocked up and put em in the freezer.
    I have never barbecued beef. just pork.. and chicken if that counts.
    I have an offset smoker that I built in the machine shop and it works well
    so far. This beef is just a big ball of meat, pretty lean as far as I can tell
    The questions that I have are- Do I need to cut it in half to make it thinner or just as is? Do I cook it the same as say a pork shoulder? and
    will it make a good bbq beef sandwiches ? Fat content and tenderness
    and so forth. Wife been cuting it up and making stew beef outta it and it seems a waste in some ways. I aim to thaw on of them out twards the end o' the week and put some heat to er' this coming weekend. Hemi..

    I haven't done a sirloin tip roast, but I'm sure someone here has and will be by shortly to help you out. I would take it out of the freezer right now and put in the fridge. It may be thawed by the weekend (depending on the size of the roast).

    Smoke it whole @ 225* to desired internal temp, wrap in foil/towels and rest for slicing. Carry-over heat will bring internals up a bit, so compensate for that.

    If you want to pull it, do like you would a butt, foil @ 160* or so and brase it to 200-205*, then rest a couple hours wrapped up in towels.

    Good luck, and please, post you progress when you get it smoked up.
