    I have a 5 lb. eye round roast I'd like to try in a MES, any ideas?

    I just did one if these last weekend! It turned out sooooo good.

    I took a very simple approach... I rubbed it with some Rib Rub, got a really good coating on it, nice and thick.

    Depending on what temp you want to bring it too.. I did Medium.

    You can't go wrong with a roast.... just don't overcook it!

    While you are at it, make a Fattie, or some ABT's too, it won't take up your whole grill..... so smoke lots of stuff with it!

    Have fun!

    I did an eye of round in my MES just a couple of weeks ago.

    Since it is so lean, I injected it with melted butter and some S&P. Then to add some flavor and baste it while it smoked, I laid thinly sliced onions on top of it and then draped bacon over that. Smoked it at about 220° until the internal temp was just shy of 140°. It rested for about a half hour to let the juices redistribute and then I sliced it fairly thin for sandwiches. It turned out GREAT!!!

    Hope this helps.
