    Prep'ed tonight for this weekend's simple smoke.
    Rump Roast w/ Bacon & Cola Injection

    Rub:
    1/3 cup Turbinado Sugar
    1/3 cup Salt (Course)
    1/3 cup paprika
    1/3 cup fresh black pepper

    Liquid (mix very well):
    1 can Cola (shake until flat)
    1/2 cup EVOO
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp onion powder
    1/2 tsp cayanne pepper

    Slathered roast with yellow mustard and applied a thick layer of the rub. Then using an injector, fill the roast with the liquid until it starts to look like something out of CaddyShack (ya know, gopher holes....high pressure water....use your imagination). Then cover with bacon and sprinkle some of the lefter rub on top for good measure.

    Store in plastic zipper back in fridge over night. I don't always do this, but this time I added what was left of the liquid to the bag. Let's hope it doesn't screw up my rub. More to come....

    Interestin'. I did a roast a while back with a garlic/James B. Beam injection. I'm not a "sweet" food fan, but yours DOES look good!

    That sure looks good. Smoked rump roast is the best. Do you add it to potatoes, carrots, onions?

    Not usually, unless I cook it in the crock pot. When it's done on the smoker, I don't want anything to compete with the meat.

    Very interesting. Do you smoke it in a pan or on some foil? I will have to try it myself.

    Looks god Josh!! Have you seen the thread on "Bacon Mat" in the Bacon Forum? Basically you weave a mat out of bacon-helps keeps things covered if ya know what I mean.

    That's hillarious Dutch! I started doing that last night, but got half way through the lattice, and basically said ta' heck with this! Last time, I poked some tooth picks in to keep the bacon in place. I'm going to try it without this time and see if it holds up.
