O Happy Day...And a couple of questions

My daughters sing a church youth choir; each Sunday night various parents do a lite dinner for the group of 20+/-. Yesterday was to be my turn so I did up 6+ lbs of pit beef Friday night with Dr BBQ's Herb Rub. Well Sunday AM I learned that the night's practice had been cancelled.

Oh well, their loss...cue up the Hallelujah Chorus!

Now a couple of questions:

- How long will an unsliced cooked eye of round roast last in a refrigerator; when do I need to eat it?

- The one I sliced up yesterday had a hint flavor that I can only describe as "hammy". I cooked direct at 350 dome with a couple of chunks of hickory over new lump. Am I being too critical or is there a chance of some residue on the walls from a recent ham loaf was activated?

A couple of before and after pics, sorry no sliced pics, we had one for lunch but didn't have the camera handy, but it was good.

    I don't know why it would taste hammy but I have kept sliced & unsliced iroast beef in my fridge for 6 - 8 days before. Actually it usually doesn't last that long because it gets eaten...but there was this one time it did.
  • Kim,

    Thanks for the info, I doubt it lasts that long too, but want to be safe...

    Possibly the wrong answer but I use my nose, if it has an "off" smell- I don't eat.
