    I would definitely trim most of the fat off. It will not be in the smoker long enough to render that fat. Look at the one I used, it came that way, already trimmed.

    Beautiful AL. Simply beautiful. And that Sammie...now that's my idea of a Sammie. Afraid I'll have to pass on the 1000 Island dressing-- maybe just add some spicey mustard.

    POINTS for a great job.

    Thanks Gary!

    I like the spicy brown mustard too.

    Butter on one piece of bread & Grey Poupon on the other.

    Looks like I'm going to stopping at Costco on Sunday to pick up an Eye Roast.

    I don't believe I missed this when it was first put up.

    The good thing about a 2 week cure, is Sauerkraut only takes 7 days to make from scratch!

    May I suggest slicing the  round roast lengthwise to make it about 1.5 - 2" thick...  It will cure much faster, and more thoroughly...  Take on the spices more thoroughly also....  take on smoke better...    All around a mobetta deal...

    I may try that the next time.

    Thanks Dave!

    Thanks for this recipe Al.

    My local Meijer store had eye of round on sale for $2.49# Saturday so I grabbed one, trimmed it yesterday and put it in the brine/cure. I added some thyme, cloves and pepper to Al's recipe above and followed Dave's suggestion to split the meat lengthwise since I don't have an injector. I haven't decided on the rub yet but there is one floating around the interwebs that allegedly mimics the Katz Deli recipe that I may try.
