Slow-cooker Smokey Beef

Rick's cousin has a bit of land on the outskirts of the city. They grow some beefs and some sheeps. We bought a quarter of a beef beastie from him. Nigel and Andrea delivered it on the Saturday night.
That critter was HUGE.
We now have no space in our freezer, the beer-fridge freezer part is full - and we've taken some to store in Mum and Dad's freezer...
We will be eating a lot of beef in the next few months. :-)
I'm cooking a topside roast in the slow-cooker for dinner tonight and it's smelling really good.
I made a rub based on the one here I don't have ground chipotle - so I just used chilli seasoning (which will probably make it not quite as spicy - a good thing because I made a pork curry on the weekend that blew the top of Rick's head off... I need to be on my best behaviour!), and I also didn't have any garlic powder... so I left it out :-)
The roast seems to have cooked down quite a bit, but I think there will be some left over for me for breakfast and for Rick for lunch.
I love that it is ok to eat left-over roast meat for breakfast!!!

Sounds delish! I did that once too...and had to be on my best behavior - we are wimps when it comes to heat! :)

OK, I have to ask. What's a topside roast? BTW- Would you like some chipotle powder? It's everywhere here.

Fuzzy Tales - Hello! I would LOVE to be able to beam myself places... I do hope someone somewhere is working on the 'how to's'...
Ina - Spicy food is eaten with a lot of huffs, throat clearing and nose blowing here (from Rick!) :-)
BB - I googled it... I think you may know it as Top Round, or Silverside?? I'd love some chipotle powder, but I suspect NZ customs dept would have a conniption... might be worth a try though?? :-) xx
