Smoked "Rolled Roast" with q-view

Discussion in 'Pork' started by smokerdownunder, Dec 3, 2007.

  1. Alright, presenting my first q-view to you guys!
    I smoked this "rolled roast" (A thick, flat strip cut off the rump and rolled up to form a roast) in my smoker yesterday and thought 'd show it off.

    I left it in for 8 hours, pulled it out just before 175*F and it was just perfect!

    I used my own rub-down recipe on the outside, and Australian Stringybark as the smoking wood (wonder how many have heard of that!)

    The first picture is of the roast just about to go in the smoker, and the second is it just being carved after about 8 hours in a 225*F smoker.

    Nice! As far as the wood, probably as many here as Aussies have heard of alder... but you guys DO grow some weird stuff down there, 'Roos and platypus and those funky lookin' sloths

    Looks wonderful. Never heard of the wood either. Do you know if it resembles any we smoke with here in the USA?
     
  11. I Honestly don't know. I know a few woods used in the US for smoking but can't say that it relates to any. It could be unique to Australia but i couldn't say for sure

    So, this Australian Stringybark... do you use it in chunks with charcoal, or splits, or ???

  15. In regard to your question, HawgHeaven, i used to (with my old smoker) preburn it then cut it up into chunks or chip it, then yes just burn it slowly on a bed of hot coals. With my new setup, i actually preburn, then "shave" it and collect the shavings and sawdust. I place the shavings and dust into the bottom of the smoker and the result is thin blue smoke every time, seeing as the smoker barrel is heated from underneath. If that makes sense haha
     
  16. And thankyou to you all for the great comments! I'll try to do something else when i can, however dry conditions and restrictions on open fires here have halted my smoking efforts for now (Hmm, propane/electric is in my mind at the moment!)
