I'm looking to smoke my first London broil. It's 3 1/2 lbs. I have a WSM. I'm thinking of smoking it at 250 for about hour and a half. Just hoping to get some advice in advance from you folks if need be so I don't mess it up tonight.
 
If you plan on a reverse sear finish, you'll want to remove it from the smoker when the IT is 115° - 120°. Also, check the IT during the reverse sear. I like to get them about 130°, rest it loosely covered with foil and let the carry over temp take it up another 3° - 5°.

Otherwise, leave it in the smoker until it reaches your desired finish IT.

Use a jaccard or if you dont have one stab both sides with a fork about 200 times. Sprinkle on some unseasoned meat tenderizer and let it sit for a couple hours. Then season and either grill on high heat until you hit 125-130 or smoke to 115 then sear the hell out of it. Slice thin against the grain.

Just saw secondhandsmokers comments above. He's got you covered.

Lately, I stopped using the jaccard. They have been tender enough with out doing it.

As for seasonings, it can be as simple as SPOG, or herb crusted with rosemary etc, or marinate it for a couple of hours in your favorite marinade including the classic Italian dressing. I usually marinate them in a soy sauce based marinade because I am old and lazy.
