I'm thinking about bbqing up some beef. I'm looking at sliced beef, not pulled beef. Any suggestions on types of cuts I should use? I'm guessing the 250* range for several hours too....[p]I recently bought Smoke & Spice book and LOVE it....[p]Tried the Alabama White Sauce and thought it would be good on sliced beef sammie.[p]Thanks for any feedback.

    <p />Wardster,
    Pit Beef can see it in my cooks is awesome...I think it is more of a local thing around these parts, but anyone that tries it usually loves it...gotta slice it really thin, and it`s made from top round..I wouldn`t consider it BBQ however....[p]Wess

    My man!!!! Done and done![p]That is exactly what I'm looking for. So do you like the tip roast or top round better?

    I prefer top round, and it should be a little cheaper than a tip roast...ENJOY..[p]Wess

    I just bgt a whole sirloin tip (10.5 lb) for 1.78 per lb. I think I'm gonna go for this shaved pit beef. Looks good. [p]Well actually, the one I bgt is spoken for, but I believe Ingles still has the sale and I'm gonna pick up another.

    Thats a damn good price...wish I could find em that cheap..[p]Wess

    Wardster, if your just slicing, then Tri-tip lo and slow, hot or cold it's great.

    Yeah, it was half off. I cut that one into 12 1 1/2 in steaks. Grill 2 Sat night and they were darn good for buck and a half steaks. not like a ribeye or t-bone, but good red-meat for a poor man :-)[p]I'll be checking the sign at Ingles as I head to work in the morning. Gotta try this pit beef.

    I used top round, injected with a blend soy sauce, garlic powder & some water (taste for flavor & adjust with water)
    sprinkle outside with favorite rub.
    sear all sides direct heat then do indirect 7 remove when 145F. slice thin against the grain

    <p />Wardster,
    250 is more for making deli roast beef, pit beef is done 375-425 dome. here is both done with rump roast, good cheap cut that can be found in a size for feeding a small crowd [p]100_0584.jpg
