I always marinade at least 24 hours. That’s a minimum. I’ve done some 2-3 days before.I bought 2.5 lb beef eye of round and sliced against the grain into 1/4" thick slices. I read online to put it in the freezer for an hour or so to make it easier to slice and that worked.
I did (2) different marinades. First was (1) cup low sodium soy sauce, 1/2 cup of Worcestershire sauce, maple syrup, garlic powder and ground black pepper.
The second was Soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, A-1 steak sauce, onion powder and Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce. Both were very good but very different tastes.
I marinated the meat for 15 hours and I don't think that was long enough. Next time I will do at least 24 hours and make sure I flip the bags a few times to make sure all the meat coated.
4 hours on smoke boost seemed to be just right, I used Weber Grill Master pellets.
Those burgers look mighty fine to me. No shame in an honest burger. I was just waiting on somebody to put some distance between me and Dutchie. That guy is tough act to follow. I am going to ask him for some classes, but I don't know if I want to do cooking first or picture taking...Hey thanks a lot! Making my feeble burgers look even more pathetic.
Nice looking work!
