[QUOTE=landarc;1118992]I am wondering if you had the perfect roast last year, why change?
I prefer sear at the start of the cook,QUOTE]
I agree with the first statement Bob. If it works, don't fix it... But on the searing issue, I always sear at the end. Reasons? #1 I suspect, (no knowledge, just suspect) that by searing at the beginning you have created a minor crust which can make smoke penetration difficult. #2 By searing first you have increased the speed at which the meat will no longer accept smoke, especially for those who like their meat medium to well done.
