FAQ Subject: How do I cook roast beef on the pit?
How are you doing this weekend? Well I hate to bother you but I'm hopping you can give me a little help...I've been asked to cook a roast beef on my smoker and will likely enjoy doing it ... But up until now I've only done ribs and chicken... can you give me length of time, a temp and a recipe for a rub or what ever you recommend? the beef will be about 7 LBS. Thank you DR. BBQ ....
I forgot I met a friend of yours yesterday Tom Ingls of Valley Inn. Says your the BBQ Man ...really nice guy..

Nothing to it. Crank up the grill to 350° while you bring the roast to room temperature. Rub it down with 1 T. salt, 2 t. each garlic and onion powder, 1 t. each ground bay, ground thyme and fresh ground black pepper. Put it on a rack in a shallow pan with 1/4-1/2" of water to keep the first drippings from burning. For 7 lbs should take about 1 3/4 hours to reach an internal temp of 140°. Take it off and let it sit for 12-15 minutes while you Deglaze the pan and simmer the juices down to a nice Aw Juice (Southern speak) gravy. Slice thinly across the grain.
Ol' Tom shure is pretty, ain't he. Never see the guy when he has a hair out of place or a wrinkle in his cloths.
