    Well as I stated in another post even though some say it is not a good smoking cut I am going to try an Eye Round Roast. I rubbed it down Last night, used a basic marinade and drizzled it all over both sides, but the fat(the little that there is) side up and loosely wrapped in bacon. Drizzled some more marinade over it and she should be ready for the smoke. Going to go with Lump and Hickory around 220-230. Plan is to pull it around 240 and let sit and see what happens.

    Edit: This is a small one around 2.5lbs hopefully she don't take all night..lol

    That stuff makes Great Dried Beef, but I never tried making it like you are.

    Keep us posted.

    And just so you know we pay attention, better stop a long time before 240˚.[​IMG]

    Well I took it to 140 and foiled for 30 mins, there is not much of a smoke ring but I was surprised how quick it took to cook, even at 220. Under three hours and she was done. Very Juicy and pretty decent flavor, sliced thin for sandwiches for lunch today!

    It was pretty damn tender, and the flavor was pretty normal, I did not go crazy on the rub/spritz. I am a small guy and I even ate 4 sammies for lunch! Smokin' Good to say the least

    That looks really great! I never could make those w/o drying them out, even in the oven. Thanks for the tips to avoid that.

    This is just to much fun (only been smoking for about 6mos if that), I can't even go to the store without thinking....hmm what can I smoke here..lol  I am glad it worked out well, I heard so many stories of these turning out bad, but I think this was pretty decent in the end

    Dauntless,

    I always figured the eye round roast would be too tuff made that way. That's why I use it for dried beef (click on "dried beef" in my signature below), but if yours was tender, I might have to try that myself.

    Bear it was very moist and tender, perfect for sammies.  I wouldn't say you could cut it thick and eat it like a steak, but it was very tender sliced nice and thin.
