    Here's my third post today of what I smoked yesterday.  I made pulled pork, chicken quarters, SPAM, homemade bread and this bottom round roast.

    This weighed in at 2.5 lbs.

    I put in a zip lock bag with about a half a bottle of Italian Salad Dressing and put it in the refridgerator overnight.

    It was only 8 degrees out in the morning when I got started.  Gotta dress warm to get the WSM ready.

    I did the Minion Method using Apple and Cherry chunks.  I used a new kind of charcoal this time.  It was good stuff.  Created a lot of ash, but held temps well and lasted all day.

    Here it is going down with the butt.

    Here we are a couple of hours later.  I flipped it and did a temp check.

    Oops, I fell asleep.  I wanted to take this off at 140, but it ended up coming off at 155.  I wrapped it in foil and rested for an hour before I wrapped in saran wrap and put it in the refridgerator overnight to slice today.

    Here it is a few minutes ago as I was getting ready to slice.

    I cut it in half so it would slice better and I could go across the grain.  Color is still better than I thought it would be.

    Getting slicer running.

    Paper thin baby!

    All bagged up for sammies later.  I did snack on it a bit while slicing.

    Here's the SPAM.  I just cut cross hatches into into and sprinkled rub all over it and into the cuts.  A few pieces were torn off before I snapped this pic.

    Here's the bread.  On the left is a cheddar onion loaf, the other is plain.

    Here's the link to the pork butt

    Jay it all looks good except for that Spam - man I never liked that stuff at all.  Great work with the slicer. You are going to have some great sammies with that beef for sure especially with that bread you made

    Nope.  But that's not my real picture either  :)  That's Jeff Bridges from the movie The Big Lebowski.

    You certainly have been busy!  That roast wouldn't last two days around here.  We really like French dip sandwiches and that looks perfect.

    Very nice. I have a rump roast out in the freezer, never did that type yet. Did an eye of round awhile back and that made some great sammies. How does the bottom round compare dude?

    Hey Flash,

    I did an eye of round last time.  http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/forum/thread/99574/first-time-making-deli-style-roast-beef   This one wasn't quite as dry.  But on both, I took them a little too high on the internal temp.  This one seemed a little more moist than the eye even though there isn't much fat in this either.
