Beef roast is often a cut overlooked when it comes to smoking. Roast is usually top choice for slow cookers, crock pots and pot roasts. However, this method for smoked beef roast uses a similar technique to keep the meat tender, juicy and bursting with flavour.
This recipe uses several tricks to keep the meat tender, this is; injecting the meat with beef broth, cooking the beef in broth and basting every hour. Using one of the best gas smokers such as the Weber genesis ii lx s-340 Together these techniques ensure you will be left with a deliciously tender cut. Not that dreaded tough, chewy roast that haunted my childhood!
I love this smoked beef roast recipe because it's just as simple as setting the slow cooker, but you get that beautiful true smoky flavour that we crave in our roast. Now lets get started!

What is the perfect smoked beef temperature? That is the most common questions I get however it really comes done to preference, so I have put a guide below. To accurately monitor the temperature ensure you pick up a thermometer, personally I use the Weber igrill 2 which is apart of my best thermometer for smokers guide
Note: Always keep in mind your meat will continue to cook once it has been taken off the heat source. I always take mine off around 10°F below the temperatures below. This allows the beef to continue to cook while it is resting. This ensures you don't get a nasty well-done piece of meat when you were aiming for a medium.
You might have noticed that this beef can take upwards of 5 hours! After spending 5+ of your day smoking this bad boy the last thing you want is for your temperature to drop. I always use one of the best propane smokers when I know I have to go looooow and slow all day!

This simple recipe allows for the flavour of the meat really stand out. My favourite flavored pellets to use when smoking beef in my pellet smoker are mesquite pellets, I find they compliment beef well and do not over power it.

You will more often than not find me tinkering around in my backyard. I will have one hand tightly gripped around a can of beer and the other hand tightly gripped around my spatula. Not so long ago (almost 8 years now) I got obsessed with Grilling, smoking and BBQ-ing. I can't get enough of it.. and neither can my family!
