Grilling a Beef Roast Drives the Dogs Crazy! (Who Knew?)

One of the greatest quotes about beef comes from the Gangster Rapper, Ice Cube (Don Mega). He said in one of his songs, “These 32 teeth will give your ass grief – – Bite you like a Fat Burger if you got beef.”

Lets face it, the guy can rap.

I’ve actually never eaten anything from Fat Burger but if its good let me know.

Anyways,

I can’t rap about beef but I sure can cook it. And cook it we did…

We decided to grill a beef roast on the weber grill the other night and it turned out to be the best beef roast I’ve ever eaten. It was extremely tender and juicy…just how you want it. The days of cooking it in the crock-pot are over.

So as you will see in the video, we used a top round roast. We covered it in extra virgin olive oil  ( we really like Kirkland Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Costco…the Tuscano), seasoned it up, and seared it on all sides before moving it off of the coals.

Once we moved it to the other side of the grill we left it alone for about an hour and twenty minutes.

It’s pretty funny that as soon as we started cooking it, the neighborhood dogs started going crazy… it smelled really, really good.

Alright, sit back and relax while you see how to grill a beef roast.

How to Cook with Charcoal

In this video you will see how to cook with charcoal using the “indirect” heating method.

Almost all of the cooking I do on the weber grill uses indirect heat. This allows me to get some other things done, or relax to a couple of cold drinks without burning dinner.

It will take a lot longer to cook this way but believe me, it will become your favorite way to grill.

I have learned that it is better to spend the few extra dollars on the name brand charcoal and lighter fluid. Kingsford Charcoal seems to give me the most bang for the buck.
