    So hey everyone. Been almost a week since I have had a chance to post on here, gardening season is taking up so much free time.

    Have a few smokes to post so there's some smoked goodness coming up.

    First post is an eye of round roast. They were buy one get one free so I grabbed a couple that were just shy of 6lbs. Normally they are cooked at around 450-500 for 20 minutes or so then sit in the oven (heat off) with the door cracked for 2-3 hours for a medium to med-rare.
    Of course an oven was out of the question, this thing was getting smoked.

    I cut several slits into in and added peppers, salt and a piece of garlic.

    Seasoned it up with SnP, garlic, cayenne, a little brown sugar and a little red pepper.

    Smoked over hickory till an internal of 130. I would have gone to 135 but I threw it into the oven @ 500 for a few minutes to brown the outside.

    Wrapped in foil for 20 minutes then sliced.

    Used some of the drippings and juices from resting to make a gravy and Aus Jus. Poured Aus Jus over the beef and served with mashed and gravy and a biscuit.

    Throwing it in the oven brought the temp up a bit more than I was shooting for but it was still a very nice medium. So tender I was truly surprised.
    There was so much meat to go around i gave some to several family members and still had plenty to make a beef stew with, but that is another post.
    Thanks for checking it out.

    That does look fantastic! Nice job, juices are holding in the meat well, and the browning finish in the "O", looks like it worked out great!
