Please suggest what type of roast to try, I like my meat "Tender". Can I do it directly on the grill???? Do I need to do something to tendrize the meat first??? (citrus marinade, or???)

    New Bob,
    What are you looking for? Beef? Pork? Lamb? all can be done very tender.
    Marinades help a little, but that is not the answer to tender meat.

    Nature Boy,[p]I did a simple beef roast the other day. This was the roast I was planning on doing during the "storm" we were supposed to get the other week where we were supposed to get 2 feet of snow but ended up with less than 2 inches. Spin had given me some great ideas for the cook. I ended up freezing the roast when I realized it wasn't going to snow and that I had to work and go to school.[p]Anyway, I did it the other day with a very simple method. Cut a bunch of slits in the beef and stuff with large cloves of garlic. Season simply with garlic peppercorn char crust and cook over a drip pan to an internal temp of about 140*. Medium rare and delicious! The char crust gave a nice outside coating to the beef and the smoke (hickory) penetrated the meat nicely. Last week, I had many sandwiches made simply of thinly sliced pieces of this roast on small buns with yellow mustard and some Q sauce.[p]I'll be trying the more elegant method in a week or so, but this simple method definitely has some merit.[p]Cornfed[p]

    Nature Boy,
    Sorry for the oversite, "Beef" tender and juicy. (That's if I, not the BGE, screws it up)

    New Bob, Today I cook/smoked a 3.5 lb tri tip beef roast at 275 for 3.5 hours. Rubbed it with Montreal steak rub. It was very tender. Had both med and med rare. tstick
