7 Bone Roast X2

Well the in-laws were in town this weekend so I decided to do another 7 Bone Roast X2. Since it was such a big hit last weekend (http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1142408/7-bone-beef-roast). This time I got two ~5 pound roasts. I again coated them with a thin layer of Olive oil (NOT extra virgin olive oil). Then I rubbed in Kirkland’s (Costco’s) Steak rub. I let them set out on the counter while I got my egg ready. I started the egg out at ~300 with indirect plate setter. Put in my drip pan about half full of water. This time I slowly adjusted the egg down to 220ish during the cook (but that’s just me, I like the lower temps you could leave it at 300). Then I stacked the roasts on and let them go for about 8 hours (picture of roasts on egg is right before I foiled them). Then I wrapped them up in foil and added a little water to the drippings in the pan (since most of it had evaporated away. Stirred it a little then poured it into the foil. And let it go for ~3 more hours and pulled it at ~160 (my meat thermometer is acting up I got a new one coming) when we got home from church. I should have probably left them on for another hour to get them a little more tinder. But then again the French buns we used were harder to tear then the roast J.
