Chuck Roast?

edited 8:34AM in EggHead Forum
Have an inexpensive 4 12 lb. chuck roast. Any suggestions as to the best way to smoke it? Thanks.

    BamaQue,[p]There are a couple ways to deal with a chuck roast. Either sear it and cook it until done at 300-350 then slice thin for sandwiches or slow cook it to make pulled beef. Maybe others have more ideas, its not the best cut for doing much with.
    I guess you could use it for jerky too.[p]Tim

    I beleive that it was Gfw that had very good results in doing a chuck roast to pulled state.

    JJ, I agree, chuck makes great Pulled BBQ Beef!

  • BamaQue,
    You could do the BGE pot roast thing - Cook low & slow for a couple hours - then wrap in foil with a little marinade for a smoked/pot roast/beef au jus hybrid. Really easy, & really good. Did an English roast that way Feb 19th - reported it on forum & it led to quite a few responses & comments - check the archives - it's all there. Gonna try pulled beef tomorrow with a slab of chuck I got today - will see how it goes. Hi Gretl! - ERIC
