    Beef, Roast, Top Round, ClayQ

    Jacqui McNaughton,Mornin Jacqui. Don't know why you didn't get some help by now....maybe everyone's busy cookin. Beef round roast is cut from a big muscle in the back leg, is lean and easy to cook. The tricky part is not overcooking this cut to keep it juicy and tender. So I'll suggest indirect (not directly over the burning lump but in a rack, in a drip pan) and cook to 135-140 internal with some hickory smoke. Let the meat rest after cooking for about 20 minutes before making very thin slices. You can marinate or brine this cut of meat....I've done both... I use a light brine ratio of one cup Kosher salt to one gallon water so it's not overly salty.Hope this helps. I'm cooking a beef roast today and it's gonna be good.Have fun,Clay
