Hints & Tips
This is so easy to make and so good! Also good using a boneless leg of lamb. For best results you will need a proper smoke/cooker that has a water tray for moisture.

Smoked Eye-Of-Round Roast Recipe
Barbecue, Grilling and Smoking
Yields: 6 to 8 servings
Prep time: 15 min
Smoke time: 2 hr
1 (5- to 6-pound) eye-of-round roast
Your favorite dry rub
Prepare your smoker according to manufacturer's directions. I have an
Electric Smoker and I like to use either alder or cherry wood. Set temperature to high and
then turn down the temperature.
Trim all excess fat from roast; rub all over with your favorite dry rub. Place prepared roast on the oiled smoker rack. Smoke for approximately 2 hours or until
internal temperature reaches 125° to 130°F for medium-rare (using a good
What constitutes rare and medium-rare cooked meat? To satisfy government home economists, the Beef
Council says rare beef means an internal temperature of 140 degrees F. Well, that is ok if you like well-done and dry meat. If you like moist, rosy meat (like I do),
rare begins at 120 degrees and starts to become medium rare at 125 or 130 degrees. To cook your meat properly, you must purchase and use a good instant-read digital

asking what cooking/meat thermometer that I prefer and use in my cooking and baking. I, personally, use the
Thermapen Thermometer shown in the photo on the right. Originally designed for professional users, the
Super-Fast Thermapen Thermometer is used by chefs all over the world. To learn more about this excellent
thermometer and to also purchase one (if you desire), just click on the underlined:
Residual Heat or Carry-Over Cooking: Remember, the steak will continue to cook as it sets. The
temperature will rise to 125 degrees F. to 130 degrees F. internal temperature (medium rare) at 15 to 20 minutes. So, pay attention to how long you let the cooked
steak sit before serving.
Remove from smoker and let it rest at room temperature for 15 to 20 minutes before carving (meat temperature will rise 5 to 10 degrees after it is removed from the oven).
To serve, slice very thin.
TIPS: As to the temperature of the smoker, I keep it fairly low (250°F). Do not raise the lid of the smoker any more than you
absolutely need to (it reduces the temperature inside every time you do).
