Monday for tuesday Pot Roast 
Almost 3lb. Patted dry and coated with course Kosher salt, RT for 50 minutes while egg stabilized. Removed salt patted dry and seasoned with Das salt free, lemon pepper, pepper, Rattlesnake dust and garlic powder. 
On small at 1300 and cooked indirect @ 285+ until IT reached 195, around 2030. Decanted the grease from drip pan and used ½ bottle of Wild Hare Ale to scrape up the brown bits. Wrapped roast in foil and poured in the ale and bits. Back on the egg (temp about 200) for about an hour. 
We decided not to pull but put in fridge for over night rest. 
Sliced, on small until warmed through. 
The beef was tender, just like a braised pot roast, but taste was all beef. (no wine , veggies or other tastes to interfere with the intense beef flavor). The mouth feel was very velvety. Normally I don’t eat beef fat, but what fat was melt-in-your-mouth good.

The glistening is from the meat, nothing added

    Pot roast looks great. Nicely different way for a pot roast.

    Nola, go for it.  Tonight's leftovers were pretty darn good.

    SWMBO is out at Drago's (best grilled oysters in the country).  Professional meeting.  I'm on house cleaning duty - self appointed.  I'm gonna go for it, need to pick up the pot roast.  Worked from home today - pulled a late night 3:00 AM finishing up some deadline work for a chemical company client we have a big contract with.  Gotta love crunch time.

  • Nola, Had to look up SWMBO....in our house it's  "if mama ain't happy, no one is happy"  I have been in crunch mode since May, but is is starting to slow down.  Looking forward to the Texarkana Fest, making it a very long week end. Thinking of cooking a couple of turkey breasts.
