First Chuck on the Egg (updated pics)

So starting tonight we are expecting some bad weather here in Dallas. Nothing like the rest of the country has seen this winter, but people down here can't drive in rain and sleet and snow. So as much time as i have accumulated here at work I decided to take the day off to avoid the crazies on the road and try my hand at a chuckie. Think it was just short of 4 pounds. Maybe 3.9lbs.

So I read up on some different forums and this is what I think my plan is going to be. Seems like 250 is the way to go till it hits 160, then foil till it hits either 200 or 205? Do I need to add some liquid when I foil it? Any basic guideline on how long it generally takes per pound? Just trying to figure out when I need to get it started to have it done in time for dinner.

Don't worry, I'll post pics. Got nothing else to do tomorrow except watch some movies and sip on a bloody mary or two.

Wish me luck.

    Can I ask a newbie question what is a Chcuk?
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.
    Inbetween Iowa and Colorado, not close to anything remotely entertaining outside of football season.

    Jaso, I think if you allow 45-60 min per pound youll be ok,you can always wrap it in a towel and put it in a cooler, it will hold qite a while.

  • It's the same as a chuck roast, only the u and the c are reversed.

    Sorry I didn't post up the final pics last night. Started watching a movie and just didn't get around to it.

    So here is a pic of the beef after it had been pulled and the juice had been added back to it. Didn't seem like it got much of a smoke ring to it, although it had plenty of smokey flavor.

    Here's the final picture. Pulled beef tacos with some onions, diced japs and some cheese. Notice the nice fresh asparagus from the Farmer's Market?

    All in all a pretty tasty meal and a good way to spend a snow day. Think I'll go make me some breakfast tacos with the leftovers.
