    I have been wanting to do another roast beef that I could slice thin for sandwiches. I did basically the same as last time but kicked it up a little bit.

    My mop ingredients. Cherry juice and Disaronno

    I poured Disaronno over the roast and lightly coated with a little bit of rub.

    Sprayed with a blend of cherry juice and amaretto after about an hour then about every 30-40 minutes until it hit an internal temp of about 140.

    A couple of sliced pics

    After slicing it all up I guess I got a little careless when cleaning the meat slicer and got a small cut on the tip of a finger......

    But bacon makes everything better

    The slices from the outside of the roast definately had the cherry/amaretto flavor. Maybe I will try injecting next time

    That meat looks awsome to me love it rare. What did that disronno do to the flavor I have never seen that stuff (was a beer man) you have to love those band-aids though. too cool

    That looks awesome!!! How was the flavor? Not as strong as you would of liked? I think injecting it would distribute the flavor more. Or even maybe marinade it?

    I am a beer man too. But my wife keeps a few things in the booze cabinet that she gets into every once in a while. The DiSoronno along with the cherry juice added some sweetness to the meat. It was definately worth doing it this way. I would do it again.

    The flavor was great. Tender smokey roast beef with a hint of sweetness. If I injected I would probably just inject a small amount. I think it could get too sweet if I used too much.

    Oh My Gawd! As soon as I saw the cherry disarronno, I knew it HAD to be good! That is a fantastic combo you thought of, I bet it tasted great. Your roast looked beautiful, though I like mine a bit less rare. Wutang, you get points for creativity my friend!

    Definitely an original, new way to smoke some roast beef. That looks like it turned out GREAT!!

    As for the finger ... it took me a while to realize that you weren't bleeding through your bandage, and that it was just the "meat" in the bacon bandaid. [​IMG]

    I just looked back at the picture and you are right-it does look like I am bleeding pretty good. [​IMG]

    Holy Cow. That looks like the finest roast beef on the planet. Great mix of flavors. Would love to hear how an injection does. I would think the cherry juice would stain the meat a little and maybe make it look more rare than it really is. What do you think? Would it do that?

    Love the bandaids. What was the "free toy inside"?

    I bet you are right about the cherry juice changing the color. I just might have to try it and see.

    I have been waiting to see if anyone would ask about the "free toy." It was a bacon sticker. A small puffy sticker about one inch long that looks just like the band-aid. My 3 year old daughter wanted it so she walked around with a bacon sticker on her shirt the day I opened them.

    Wow!!! I love amaretto and I love rare roast beef! That looks awesome! Be careful you don't accidentally wrap those band-aids around a fattie [​IMG][​IMG]
  16. Awsome combo for the beef, I could go down town on a couple of those sammies. [​IMG]

    Both. [​IMG] I have reheated them in warm au jus and melted some provolone cheese over the sandwich and served with the au jus for a french dip. And I have just pulled it out of the fridge and slapped some mayo on some bread for a roast beef sammich. My wife also likes to use it for a hot beef sandwhich served open face with gravy and mashed potatoes.
