Ranch Raised with Karina Jones - Smoked Roast Beef EP 407

Karina Jones is a real-life ranch wife in the Nebraska Sandhills and one of the most highly sought-after speakers in the cattle industry nationwide!

Every month is beef month at the Jones Ranch! Thanks for tuning in to Ranch Raised.

I have been reading up on smoking boneless beef roasts. As we head into the busy summer months, I can’t be left relying on expensive lunch meat to feed my family. But now, I have found my solution! Yesterday I smoked a sirloin tip roast but I am looking forward to trying other boneless roasts in my freezer like the Pike’s Peak or tri-tip

I seasoned the roast generously with Rick’s Seasoning Salt of course, but you use your favorite rub or blend. I placed it on the smoker at 250 degrees. This was a 3-4 pound roast so it took around 4 hours to reach an internal temp of 160 degrees and it was PERFECT! I am looking forward to putting a couple of roasts on the smoker at a time, then slicing to use in place of lunch meat. In fact, my girls have already requested I use this sliced, smoked roast beef for their sack lunches this week for their field trips.

I also like the idea of cubing some of the smoked meat up to throw in hashbrowns for a hearty breakfast. And how about smoked beef salad sandwiches! YUM!

As we celebrate May as beef month, let’s make it USA beef month! If you would like to support your local cattle producer and friendly neighborhood meat locker but you don’t know how to find them, a good place to start is by visiting www.usabeef.org. Well, I gotta go! I have a brisket to put on the smoker.

Karina ranches with her husband, Marty, and 4 children near Broken Bow, NE. She grew up in western NE, with roots also in southwest SD. The cattle industry and raising kids is her passion.

Watching the cattle industry go the path that it has gone, she could no longer sit quietly at home checking cows, fixing fence, and doing all the everyday tasks wondering when some else was going to make it all better. As she became more active and outspoken on industry issues, she was asked to join the R-CALF USA staff in September 2020 as the Checkoff Petition Campaign manager. That position transcended into her current role as full time Field Director for R-CALF USA.

You can hear her almost every Friday on Your Ag Network’s Hot Barn Report, where she deep dives into cattle industry issues and industry reforms. Listen to Ranch Raised on a Your Ag Network hometown station or www.youragnetwork.com where she talks about her daily life on the Jones Ranch.

Cattle producers are her people. She will meet you at the county fair, at the sale barn, or anywhere the dusty trail leads.
