It's been a long time since I posted anything on here, so I wanted to get something going. I've never cooked, nor seen a bottom round flat, but it was only 1.59/lb, so I figured I'd give it a shot! This is a big hunk of beef (10 lbs), so I'm planning a long smoke. I have 23 pounds of meat bubbling away in there! Beef prep: keep it simple; kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper Pork Prep: store bought rub (time was an issue) and added some turbinado sugar I had the smoker rolling by 6 am. Too bad for my neighbors who slept with their windows open. They first heard me tripping all over the yard setting up, then the smell of charcoal smoke rolling into their windows. Oh well, I'm over it. When did the sun start coming up so late anyhow? I hope this adds up to a good labor day smoke. Can't wait to eat!
