comment Tough roast.. what's going wrong?
I think that's what happened last night Davy - it certainly wasn't fully defrosted when I put it in the oven, but my housemate was rather impatient to eat so I put it in at 60degC for 20mins before the rest of the cooking process. Doubt that did the trick though. Cheers.

comment Tough roast.. what's going wrong?
Great answer, I'd +1 you if I could...! I'm not sure it's overcooking; my brisket this evening was pink on the middle - and still chewy! The tent idea however is a good idea. What would you suggest for timings if I'm using foil? Happy to use a thermometer - I do actually have one somewhere.

That looks like exactly the answer for the brisket. Any ideas for the other cuts?
