Got a top round roast, pit beef or pulled beef?

Topic says it all guys and gals, found a top round roast in the deep freeze that needs to be cooked.  So let me know what you think. It's about 3 1/3 rd pounds.

    Pit beef. I don't know if there is enough interstitial fat for pulled.

  • That's what I was thinking, chuck roast would be better for pulled wouldn't it?

    Did a top round pit beef tonight. One of my favorite cooks.

  • Any suggestions @Tjcoley? Never done pit beef before and my neighbor is from Baltimore so I would like for it to be decent.

    Here's the first one I did. Tonight I went indirect at 400 to IT of 90, then seared to 125. Still a little more done than I like, but great flavor and great sandwich. http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1143360/baltimore-pit-beef#latest

  • That's a great looking cook @Tjcoley when you said garlic, I'm assuming fresh garlic and not powdered or junk in a jar.?

    Actually used ground dried garlic.  Fresh would be better, but just wanted the flavor.  Kept it simple.

  • Nothing wrong with that, keeping it simple is sometimes the best way.
