5lb. seasoned wrapped and set overnight in fridge.  Roasted low and slow 225* -230* indirect. Pulled at 130* internal. Foiled toweled, and rested for two hours in cooler. Sliced thin and served warm,was WAY better than any store bought deli beef I have ever had. Fridge overnight and will slice into 1lb sandwich packs vacuum sealed and then frozen until needed. This stuff was super tender !! :D image

Yes, this is the biggest one they make.

    That is a mighty fine looking piece of cow. How did you decide on a bottom round roast over a sirloin tip?

    THANK YOU !!
    When I went to Winn Dixie ( local grocery chain ) they had the meat marked down from $30.00 to $23.00 plus buy one get one free. I figured this was just right for a first time cook. The meat was USDA Choice. The forum seemed split on their opinion of what cut to use , so I just bought some Bottom roast and went with it.

    Thanks for the info. At todays beef prices that is a great deal. All info is saved to the note pad for a future cook while I search for a good deal on beef. ;;)

    XLentEGG...your roast looks delicious. How long did it take to get to130* internal? We want to plan a similar cook and wanted a time frame. Thanks.

    I believe that it was three to four hours. The clocks were still out of wack from the time change and i'm not real sure that my wife did not reset the clocks during the cook. I rested it for two hours foiled, toweled and in the cooler. This was to let the juices settle. Don't know if it really needed that long of a rest or not. This was my first one.
