Hello All,

 I am new to this fine art of smoking, I have smoked a few things like a whole hog, a whole deer, and some ribs and chicken. I cooked all of those on an offset smoker but I just recently bought a Weber Smokey Mountain 18.5". My Oldest of three boys loves grilling with me and enjoys watching BBQ Pitmasters so I want to get him involved in this process. I haven't fired up the WSM yet but my wife already bought a rump roast, pork butt and two top rounds AKA "London Broil". Any advice you guys can give me would be appreciated.

Thanks and happy smoking.

Hey Gary,

Hi Randy and welcome! Good luck with that top round...as for rubs, with beef my preference is keep it simple. SPOG (salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder) is my favorite seasoning for most beef cooks, although I sometimes do a Montreal steak seasoning.

Be sure to show and tell how it turns out!
