Smoking a whole Beef Round
Hey has anyone ever smoked a whole beef round? I was thinking a cooking it like a brisket, but then I thought I should ask first, because I don't want to screw up that much meat.

Re: Smoking a whole Beef Round
I bought one for that reason but haven't got to it yet. One of the other guys on a different forum says that it has become a favorite with some of his customers. I would think that seasoning and smoke penetration would be different from brisket but with flats going for $3.00 p/p it might be an idea. By the way, I'm just putting in my third load of flats, 8 per load for a total of 150 pounds. Church Christmas party Saturday for 250.

I've done a couple of bottom round sections and a top round section on different cooks, but I've never done a whole beef round, I liked the bottom rounds best, but my family liked the top round better.

Respice = you didn't use enough spice the first time! adspice = you ought to add spice, you know? prospice = you should be an advocate for spice!

145 - 150 F internal, still just a touch of pink in the middle, tested deep with a digital thermometer, then tented under foil to redistribute the juices.

Some like to take it off lower, and have more pink, or take it a little higher and have no pink, if it was just me I'd probably take it off at 135 - 140, but if I do that I get complaints about pink meat, there's a part of me that likes to put the knife to a piece of beef and still hear the MOO! :wink:

I did my home work on this one. 150 pounds raw = 100 cooked (.33 lose) = 250 6oz. portions.

Re: Smoking a whole Beef Round
Hey Larry... Were those flats Choice or Select?? It would be interesting to know what you ended up with in weight. I cooked a case of whole packers last summer, they were Choice, and lost close to 50% :shock: I went back to Select and get about 35% loss


BTW, I thought you were going to start saying NO! to those big cooks/gigs???? Mr Yes Man :wink:

Re: Smoking a whole Beef Round
So to follow up, I split the round and just cooked the top round and decided to freeze the rest. I heavily coated the round with cosher salt and fresh ground black pepper. I smoked the round with hickory smoke at 220 degees for around 6 hours and until the internal temp was 141*. I wrapped it in foil and placed it in a cooler for 4 hours. Then I placed it in the fridge to allow it to completely cool before slicing it on my meat slicer. The meat turned out perfect and I dont think I would change a think. We have used the meat for everything from roast beef sandwiches to fajitas and my favorite, french dip sandwiches.

Well, I see how it is, and for what it's worth Q just tastes better now that I live in Providence. The air in Logan made my Q taste funny. Big Grin

That may well be but the air out here in North Logan is clean and pure with just a hint of hickory in it...

Re: Smoking a whole Beef Round
The air in Logan is laced with Pecan and Maple on the Island any way.
Providence seems to be afoul with the dairy scents from Nibley and Hyrum, due to the Southern breezes. :wink:
Welcome Spence. Providence is a good town. My Father and his brothers and sisters were all born there. It sure has changed over the past 30-40 years, uh, what hasn't tho. Right? Are you a newby to Providence?

Re: Smoking a whole Beef Round
Yeah I am new to Providence but it might as well be Logan or River Hieghts. Across the street to the west is Logan and across the street to the North is River Hieghts. So I live right off Golf Course Road in the very, very Northwest corner of Providence. We moved to Providence 6 months ago so my wife could walk to work. She is the suprivsor over Vocational Rehabilitation for Cache Valley and she works just down the street at the state building.

We may be new to Providence but we have lived in Logan for the last 9 years. When I first moved to Logan all we had was a regular Walmart with no grocery store attatched. Now we have a Sam's, Lowes, Home Depot, etc. etc. I could go on all day with all the changes I hav e seen here in Logan. Soon we'll have 2 Super Walmarts which does not make me happy. Is there really a need for 8 grocery stores in Logan? Man how time flies.

For the record, I am not a newbie, I have been a member for over a year and a half. Also I have been a chain smoker since 2002, when I got my first little Oklahoma Joe's smoker. Big Grin

You boys go ahead and fight for second place in the Cache Valley. Everyone knows that Hyde Park is the Promised Land! Sampson, North Logan is close, and yet so far :lol:

Where in the H [no cussing please] is Hoid Pork? That's how some of the locals pronounce it.

Mmmmm. I love Hoid Pork! Once you get past the glow-in-the-dark crust, you have all sorts of tender porky goodness Tongue

And for the geographically challenged: Hyde Park is just north of Logan. It's a lot like Logan, only with fewer cars parked on the front lawn :shock:

Hyde Park is just north of NORTH Logan... for the record you know! Therefore, as a resident of North Logan, I can claim that my Q is more of a southern thing than Gallo's :lol: :lol: :lol:
