Well good people, the boss did it. She pulled out a 3# top round roast from the freezer and said I should "Egg" it tomorrow. Does anyone have a good way to cook this peice of meat? Lather? Rub? How long? I am sure it must be low and slow. That's ok as I enjoy a beer or two. Thanks for any help.....

    enok, we're not being too responsive here. Maybe the problem is that not many of us ever get TOP round roast. I think a very simple way to do this would be to coat it with a good rub (JJ's comes to mind) and just cook indirect at about 225 for a few hours. Figuring on the 2 hours per pound would indicate about 6 hours. Bumping it up to around 350 the time should drop to about 25 minutes per pound. You're going for an internal temperature of 145-160 in either case. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

    Wise One,
    At 145 to 160º the roast will be getting tough.
    Cook to 130º and I think you will be happier.

    Jim,and Mr. Wise One[p]Thank you for the info. It just now dawned on me that beef is beef is beef when it comes to a roast so they must be cooked pretty much the same way. Thanks again guys.
