I am just getting started with Smoking Meats,I am going to try a Roast Beef for my first time,4-6 pounds,How long will I have to Smoke this,and what should be my Finished Meat Temp.

Thanks Ken
Hey there kkw515,

A guideline is about 1 to 1.5 hours per pound, of course a lot depends on the shape of the piece of meat and the surface area to mass ratio. As stated above get a good thermo and leave plenty of time, some pieces of the same cut take less or more time than others. As for a finished temp for roast beef if you are slicing, a good temp would be about 140 degrees - medium rare!

Hope this helps. BTW head on over to Roll Call and give yourself a proper introduction to the forum.

Take care, have fun, and do good!
