"Just made this tonight and it was excellent! We used Jack Daniels barrel pieces to smoke the meat during the 1 3/4 hours on the grill. Great recipe!"

"Excellent. Cannot believe how tender and perfectly cooked this cheap cut of meat became. Mine was 1.6# and a little over an inch or 1.5" thick and 1hr 45 mins was great. I did sear it first six mins on each side prior to shifting it over to indirect side of grill. And my grill temp stayed around 275-300."

"I used the marinade from this recipe on cheap round steak instead of a roast and it was awesome!"
