Roast beef is great when made on the grill. Add a little extra flavor to your roast beef by doing it true barbecue style.
Servings 6 people
- 2-2.5 lbs ball tip/beef rump
- 1 tsp salt
- 4 tbsp Hank's Bonafide Beef Rub
- The ball tip or beef rump very rarely needs trimming. Just pat it dry
with a paper towel. Now apply an even layer of salt on all sides. Then
add a (liberal) amount of rub all over the meat. Let it rest overnight
in the fridge. It pays off to give it time, so the rub has time to
settle in and work the meat.
- Fire up your grill, prepare it for indirect grilling. Have it running at 265° F. We want to do a low ‘n slow so the smoke has time to flavor the meat. But at the same time we don’t need to go too low, as this cut of beef doesn’t need tenderizing. Use the snake method if you’re using a kettle grill, or even better, a Slow ‘N Sear. Place the meat on the indirect side and close the lid. Add 1-2 wood chunks for smoking on the glowing embers. I use cherry, but oak, pecan
and apple works just as well.
- Leave the beef on the grill for roughly 1.5 hours. It is ready when the
internal temp hits 55° C (130° F). Remove it from the grill and let it
rest 10-20 minutes. Now slice it and enjoy! Leftovers are kept in the
fridge and enjoyed the next few days as cold cuts.
