Top Round Roast

Finally found a roast worth buying. Its been close to a year since the stores here have had any decent looking roasts in stock. Partially do to the virus but more to do with eating trends. I guess people here no longer eat roasts or so the butchers say. Thin cut steaks and burger is what sells.

Let the roast swim in Henderson's relish and rubbed it down with a heavy coat of SPOG.

It was super windy 15-20mph with gusts hitting 30mph. I set up the 14.5" WSM with KBB and a chunk of cherry. Set the PartyQ for 250° and torched up the charcoal.

Pulled the roast at 130°. Not sure the exact timing as I wasn't really paying attention. Wasn't under a time frame so it just cooked. Nice not having to check on the pit with the PartyQ just chugging along. I finally had to replace the batteries in the PartyQ. Couldn't tell you how many hours or cooks I've done but its been a lot. So in my book that's great. I put in rechargeable batteries to replace the ones that came with it so we will see how long they last.

That looks perfect! Ive noticed its hard to find roasts as well unless your looking for a chuck. I may have to look into the party-Q for my UDS.

Looks pretty darn tasty.
I see your in a little cooler climate area. We have had no luck with rechargeable batteries when it gets close to the 30-35°. They only last for a few hrs. Have tried them in digital thermometers, headlamps, and 2 way radios.

That looks to be the perfect doneness, and thickness of slices. I'm cooking a 5# one as we speak. Got it for $3/lb when chuck roast was $8/lb. What I really like is having the leftover for sandwiches. I'm good with any thing from a hot Italian to a cold roast beef sandwich.
