Roast Beef in the Smoker

Making roast beef in the smoker is something that you will want to try. Like most thick cuts of meat, you will want to smoke it low and slow for the best results. Here is the simplest method with the least amount of prep time. Follow this simple recipe and you will be enjoying delicious slabs of juicy roast beef before the day is over.

2-3 lb Chuck Roast
1 Tablespoon Salt (kosher)
1 Tablespoon Pepper (coarse)
Your other favorite Seasonings
Hickory & Cherry Wood (50/50 mix)

Total prep time: About 60 minutes
Total time in smoker: 5-6 hours

1) Rinse beef with cold water

2) 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

3) place beef roast on rack with the “fat side” up

Put the fat side up so as it cooks the juices flow down and around the roast.

4) smoke on 220F for 2-3 hours (make sure your pan has water, and don’t forget to load your wood)

5) quickly remove beef from smoker with tongs and completely wrap with tinfoil then return to smoker

6) smoke for an additional 2-3 hours depending on the thickness of your roast. You want the internal temperature to reach 145F. A digital meat thermometer comes in very handy here.

7) Remove from smoker (keep wrapped) and allow to rest for 30 minutes prior to carving. This allows the juices to redistribute though the meat.
