    Well its about time I did a piece of beef. My wife said NOT to buy a brisket, so I took out a top round roast from the freezer yesterday morning. Rubbed it with salt, pepper, paprika, garlic, and some steak seasoning. Wrapped it up and into the fridge. It's now in the smoker. I'll post pics as we go along.

    With this smoke, there will be other firsts. I am finally gonna make a fatty, and stuffed shrooms. Of coarse, ABT's.

    Have a great day everyone.
    Andy.

    Here it all is. There are many firsts with todays smoke. There were 2 concerns today. Not much of a smoke ring and was hoping the fatty would have darken up a bit more. (this may have been they type of sausage I used). All in al the food was great.
    Oh ya..... the next time I smoke beef, I will let it rest longer. At least ah hour. We were all getting hungry so we dug into it.

    Andy.

    TO BE CONTINUED......

    Thanks Eric, and in my opinion it would be the taste that matters rather than the size of the smoke ring.
    Andy.

    Well done is what we were looking for. I took it to 175. We preferred the shrooms done in the oven over them smoked.
