BEEF plateau

I am doing Clays' pulled beef as I type this .... two 2.5 lb. chuck roasts on the egg per the recipe. They are slightly touching each other laying in a v-rack being cooked indirect.[p]The recipe states to cook at 250 dome for about (5) hours and until the meat temp is 160, then go on with other steps in the recipe. The chuck roasts have been on for 7 hours and have not surpassed 140 degrees.[p]Does beef hit a "plateau" like pork butt?


  • meinbmw,[p]Well, brisket does and I imagine your chuck would too. [p]Tried moving your probe?[p]

    BabyBoomBBQ , Moved the probe a couple of times, then confirmed the GURU's meat sensor probe temp with my Thermapen ... both in agreement within + - 4 degrees. [p]Looks like anicipated (8) hour cook could end up being (12) or more?[p]Thanks for your input ....
