I need tips on cooking a beef roast in about 3 hours. Do I need a "V-rack"? How can I do an indirect cook without a plate setter or second grate for the drip pan? Cut is about 4 lbs. How long and what temp?[p]Thanks as always. Love the forum.

    <p />Big-R, These eye rounds were done using two grates and a drip pan but you could use a v-rack over a drip pan just as well. I have done it that way before, these just wouldn't fit. I forget how much these weighed but they were done at 375* for less that 1-1/2 hours until about 130* internal for medium. [p]You can get a cheap v-rack or an extra grate for about 8 bucks at Home Depot. [p]Good luck with the roast.[p]Chuck <><

  • Chuck,it's been told before (I just don't remember), but why the foil over the thermometer cable?

    CaptTable,[p]I helps shield it from the heat. I guess it acts like a insulator and or a heat sink. Anyhow, I have been using it since I got my first BGE 18 mos. ago and have never lost a cable yet. [p]Chuck <><
