I made it a month ago for my monthly poker crew and it was a huge hit. Six guys killed 2 4lb roasts with no leftovers. It took a bit longer to cook than the book notes, but it was a great meal.

Since I was raised in east Baltimore and eastern Baltimore county, I have fond memories of eating pit beef from many different roadside stands. I definitely need to try Steven's recipe to see how it compares to the meat I remember.

If you don't like the food, have more wine

Paul, it didn't seem the same to me and I've done it twice since I got BBQ USA. I think it's got more to do with the rub as the places I got it I think just used salt and pepper.

Unfortunately, I was only able to obtain Eye Round, not Top Round, however, the flavor was outstanding. As with the other poster, the cooking time was somewhat longer than the book estimated. I think next time I will cook it at slightly higher temperatures than the medium I was at.

The sidebar in the book recommends an indirect cook to replicate the modified direct grilling. I may try that as well.

Does anyone have any suggestions on slicing this meet thin? I tried the food processor ( as the book suggested) and that was a total failure. The meet would rotate in the processor and end up cutting with the grain rather than across it. I was using the slicer blade in the cuisinart.
