I have tried several cuts of beef and while I try to choose ones that are marbled and look good, I have had poor results. looking for a roast beef. I have had excellent results with rib roasts, just looking for input on better cuts of meat. Did a bottom round tonight, great flavor, perfect internal temp, but tough chewing. Thanks in advance!

    Rich, Have you read this.

    When I did peppered beef it took close to 5 hours on the egg. I'm not a beef expert but maybe you'll find something there.

    I do most meats at 250*. Try it once and I think you will be pleased.

    Try a Tri-Tip roast. You need to cut against the grain after cooking. Tri-Tip can be cut into steaks as well. Rump roasts can be pretty tender.For most beef roasts I will cook at 375/400 direct to an internal temp of 135. Let thm rest for 10/15 minutes so the juice will redistribute through out the meat. Make sure you are buying choice or better grade meat. Good luck to all. BajaTom
