I just found a frozen 5lb. Bottom round Roast chillin in the corner of my meat locker. I am planning on egging it tomorow. It will be my first fairly large hunk of meet on the egg. Should I do it like you guys do a Briskit or a Boston Butt?[p]Suggestions?

    I haven't cooked one in a long time. But when I did, I cooked about 250 indirect. I beleive I pulled around the 135-140 mark for sliced BBQ Beef. If it is fairly lean, I think it would be dry if you took the meat to a 195 internal temp.
    Not much help, hopefully someone else will chime in.[p]Mike

    Car Wash Mike,
    Sound like a plan. Slice against the grain and he'll be all set.

    I was sure hoping you would check in. We cooked goosenecks (that is beef in my land), sold the heck out of it.

    Duckegg,[p]I have done whole bottom rounds (20 pounds) several times for roast beef sandwiches. I would not use the same approach as with a brisket or butt. What I did was to cook indirect with lots of smoke and 250 heat for about 2 hours and then bring up the temp to 350 until meat hit 140. I cut it into pieces for slicing and let it stand and cool. This kept the meat from becoming well done during the standing period. This worked well for me. Your times will be less because of the smaller size, but smoke first then cooking would be my approach.[p]BillT

    <p />Duckegg,[p]I'm with everyone else on pulling at 135°, and slicing thin against the grain. I cook a little higher on ones that are really lean.[p]~thirdeye~

    Happy Trails
