In preparation for a whole bunch of turkey meals, we had to have a palate cleanser, so picked up a couple of smaller PR roasts to fit the bill. This was also the first PR cook on the new RT 1250....I was in a rush but and didn't get any prep pics but seasoned them with salt and Kinders PR rub then smoked at 225 till IT 135, then in the house oven at 140 till for 40 min while the sides were prepared......

Gordan Ramey Mash, baby bellas and onions, with a side of quick aus jus......a perfect start to the Thanksgiving celebration!

I smoked two roasts, the second will be for French dip samiches & cheese and crackers.......YUM YUM YUM!

Thanks GS! I have gone round and round on PR, but have settled on the simplest as the best.....Thin trim on the fat cap, then 225 till 5 under desired IT then hold at desired IT....This has made getting it done at the perfect time less important....

Perfection!
Thanks CPAC! This was a choice roast but was as good or better than the prime roasts I've done

Just the way I like mine! Nicely done!
Thanks Gator! I'm looking forward to samiches and crackers up to turkey day!
