The Safeway by me has a killer deal on some botton round so I'm preppin some roast beef for lunchmeat. I have a tri-tip to put on after the RB. One good day of smokin goin on here..





All trimmed up..



Some S&P, a liitle garlic, rosemary and some thyme.. a nice compliment to beef..



I summoned the blue smoke to do it's duty..



I'll post up the final pics later and sliced pics tomorrow after a night in the fridge..

Here they are after the smoke. I took them off at 148 'cause my tri tip was getting done quick.

Thanx all.

I'm only gonna slice one.

I guess now's a good time to ask; Can I vacuum seal and freeze the other? How long will it last? If I don't  freeze and just refridgerate, how long do ya think it will stay then?

I'm sure I'll eat them fairly rapidly but I was just wondering..

First one probably won't make it to the fridge.

The other one might last a day or two---3 days tops.

Ok so I got one vac-packed and into the freezer for later. The second one I sliced up and vac packed into one or two days worth of sandwich meat. I'm hoping to squeeze a couple more days of life by vac packing.

How do the roast beefs at the deli stay good for so long? I don't think they are cured at all.

This lunchmeat making is fun!







I may have to make some SOS with some of this!

 Thanx and you're welcome. It's nice to post up some q when it comes out well..

Give it a go, it's really simple since you don't have to cure the meat or do anything else funky..
