  3. That roast beast sure came out great! It's got really nice color.
     
  4. Looks great and nice trussing. Well known fact that trussing makes meats taste better.

    Thank you Richie. Next time I'll run up there.

    When I get any lunch meat at the deli, I always get it sliced thin to shaved thickness. It just tastes better.

    Thank you. My first one, usually not much of a beef eater. BUT this stuff tastes as good as it smells. That Bear knows a good thing when he sees it.

    Thank you.

    Tying it up was always Pop's thing. He said it helped maintain density thru-out while cooking. I did it because I was going to make sandwich meat and wanted the finished product more oval than flat.

    Nice deep smoke ring on that meat. Just right doneness for sandwiches, and French dips.

    Thanks Bear.

    I should have done this sooner, you never lead me wrong before. I just have never been a big beef eater. But this is really delicious stuff.

    Thank you.

    I would have never thought it could taste as good as it smells, it being beef. BUT to my happy surprize it might even taste better if its possible.

    Thank you. If Da Bear says its one of his most favorites you know its good stuff. If you have not tried it yet don't wait around like I did. Move it up to the top of your smoking bucket list. Its unbelievable, my hands smell so good even after washing after I sliced it. If I was even the least hungry I would bite 'em. Just remember to slice that roast beast up super thin to win!

    Awesome looking stuff for some sammies. If you don't want to drive all the way to Richie's I'm closer so you can just stop and also use slicer. :D

    Thank you.

    I generally like Horse radish on my prime rib, but today I tried it on this beef, pretty good stuff.

    Thank you.

    I just gotta get off my butt and shop a slicer.

    Oh and BTW. Supper tonight?

    That is the smoked beef, Provolone cheese, grilled green bell peppers & onions, topped with prepared horse radish and some AuJus dipping sauce.

    It was ok, but next time there'll be less fluff and just beef and bread so I can enjoy that smoked beef taste better.

  19. I had a inexpensive chef choice something or other and I despised it. I finally broke down and bought a 6" KWS and am thrilled. Spendy yes! Quality yes! Slicing quality is head and shoulders above the previous slicer. Like comparing a 2x4 to a sushi chef's knife.

    I dunno Uncle Goldie, when you get you a slicer, the roast beef, Provolone Cheese, Green Peppers, and Onions, can all fall to the new slicer you are shopping for.

    After I got my slicer, I was looking for whole sorts of stuff to slice with it at Sam's Club.
    Scarce as hen's teeth they are. At least around me.
    But dang, you'll be looking for ways to play with your new slicer. LOL!

    Put the fluff as a side and mix and match in your mouth. Some might accuse you of playing with your food.
    I see it as culinary experimenting to find the new ratios that suit your tastes. :confused:

    I know, that sounds like hens scratching to peck grain out of the droppings... o_O
    LMAO! :emoji_laughing:
