Recipe: Bacon Wrapped Roast Beef in the Smoker

So I was talking to my brother and asked if I should wrap the beef roast I was going to make in the smoker with bacon. His reply; “Why WOULDN’T you wrap it in bacon?” My brother’s logic is flawless. Making delicious roast beef with your smoker shouldn’t cause you to worry. Like most thick cuts of meat, you will want to smoke it low and slow for the best results. This recipe is pretty strait forward, so just follow our simple step-by-step D.I.Y. steps and you will be enjoying delicious slabs of juicy roast beef by the time the game starts. 🙂

Here we go…. Enjoy!

2.5 lb Beef Round Rump Roast
1 lb Bacon
(Thick Cut)
Your Favorite Spices (salt/pepper)

Hickory Wood

3) mix salt and pepper together with your favorite seasonings and cover all sides of the roast. Don’t be shy with the spices! We want a nice THICK layer of seasonings for our beef. Allow the seasonings to sit on the meat at room temp for at least 60 minutes before placing in your smoker.

4) Wrap in bacon and place beef roast on rack with the “bacon side” up.

This is just so beautiful… sniff… no… I’m not crying… I… I must have something in my eye.

5) smoke on 220-225 F for 4-5 hours (make sure your pan has water, and don’t forget to load your wood) You want the internal temperature to reach 145F. A digital meat thermometer comes in very handy here.
