Can anyone tell me about how long it will take to cook this roast, and what temp to stay at to get it to finish with a rare to medium rare finish?
I have rubbed it down with a mixture of rosemary and salt n pepper and minced garlic. Thanks for the help.
also is it better to sear it in the beginning or after the cook?
never cooked one this huge

    I would cook at 250, indirect and pull when the internal temp hits 120 internal temp then rest for 1/2 hour wrapped in foil. I would guess you are looking at a 4 hour cooking time. Give yourself an hour buffer. You can always hold the meat wrapped in foil in a cooler for 3 hours. There is really no reason to sear, it will develop a nice "bark" by the time it is finished.

  • I think 250 may be a little to low, it could take forever. Max cooks his at 325, so I would also recommend doing it his way too.
