    I have been wanting to do some roast beef for sandwiches lately. So I picked up a 3 lb bottom round. I sprayed it with cherry juice then hit it with a light coating of rub.


    I smoked it burning RO and cherry wood for about 2 1/2 hours until internal temp was 138. I sprayed it with cherry juice at the one hour mark then again about every 30-40 minutes until it was done.


    Let it rest covered for a little while then put it in the fridge overnight. Pulled it out this afternoon and fed it to the meat slicer.




    Got some bakery rolls and some provolone cheese and gonna have some french dips for dinner tomorrow

    Yeah I have a cheap meat slicer that I bought from Cabela's a little while back to slice some buckboard bacon I made. It's nothing fancy but it does the job.

    Good grief, that's beautiful! I'm going to have to try that next time. Smoked roasts are excellent.

    Thanks everyone for the comments/points.

    I pulled it off the smoker at 138 and then let it rest covered for a little while. Then put it in the fridge overnight and sliced it the next day.

    That does look fantastic. I'm not sure if I coulda waited till the french dips were ready...I know I'd be shoveling those slices in my mouth before the bread hit the plate.
