Smoked Roast Beef Recipe

I am always looking for ways to save myself time in the kitchen. One of my favorite ways to do this is by purchasing a large cut of meat, cooking it up over the weekend, and enjoying it throughout the week.

The less time that I have to spend cooking, the more time I can spend doing other things that I love.

Why a Traeger Grill is Awesome

If you aren’t familiar with the Traeger pellet grill, you are missing out. Seriously, the first time we used our Traeger, I was blown away!

Unlike a typical gas or charcoal grill, the Traeger uses wood pellets. You can keep track of the entire smoking process from your phone. You can even control the grill temperature and smoke setting. We use our pellet smoker all the time!

Tips & Tricks

  • Ribeye roast, rump roast, boneless chuck roast, and rib roast are tougher cuts of meat but may be used for this recipe.
  • When it comes to slow cooking, you can use a tougher cut of beef, because the longer cooking time allows the connective tissue and muscle fibers to break down, leaving you with wonderfully tender meat.
  • Red wine or beef broth may be combined with the meat juices to make a gravy later.
  • Our homemade beef rub is easy to make with a combination of spices like coarse black pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder, but you can use any rub of your choosing.

  • It is always a good idea to confirm that the internal temperature of your meat has reached a safe level. The best way to do this is by using a digital meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the smoked beef roast.
  • The type of wood chips or pellets you use during the smoking process will affect the final flavor of your meat. Try different kinds, like apple wood or cherry wood, to find out what you and your family like best.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
