Roast Beef perfection!
« on: July 28, 2009, 04:06:59 pm »
I took a 13lb Sirloin Roast. Salt, pepper.

4 hours of Oak.

Cooked @ 200F until an IT of 135F, about 6 hours total including the smoke.

FTC for 2 hours, into the refer for 2 days (I just didn't have time to deal with it)

I unwrapped it today and sliced...

You did the right thing - I did a standing rib roast pretty much the same way last week and found that while it was excellent served that night for dinner, it was even better as cold sliced roast beef the next day.

And here's the kicker, I bought that @ $1.98/lb since I was annoyed by brisket being $3.27

It is the same doneness all the way through, and it tastes awesome!

You've just found out the secret to deli and restaurant roast beef.  Low temp (200-220o) roasting to the desired IT does that and has the added advantage of preventing the 15% shrinkage you get roasting at the "standard" 325-350o.  Also works for similar lamb and pork cuts.

dang, that really is perfection.  Only 6 hours of total cook time?  Did you inject prior to smoking?  And did you catch all the drippings to make Au Jus?

It was as simple as the original post.

13LB Beef Sirloin roast
Kosher salt
fresh cracked pepper

I unwrapped the roast, patted dry, a little S&P and
Into OBS @200F four hours of Oak.


I saved the juice for dipping, but it is so juicy there is a puddle on the slicer!

The DW is out for the evening, so I fed it to the kids with a side of Cheez-Its  :D ;D :o ::)

I tried this once before and left it in too long. I was pretty much ruined.. well done.

I pulled it @ 4AM when I got up to check it and empty/refill the water bowl. I was not expecting it to be done so fast.

Now you got me thinking I need a slicer. Just thinking about that sliced thin on good bread or a roll, heaven.  ;D

I've got a Chef's Choice 610 - it's their "low end" model (about $100) but worth about 6 of the cheaper plastic things you get for $50 and throw away after a week or so.  I don't know what I'd do with pastrami, roast beef, or other sandwich makings without it.
