Chuck Roast Plans

Planning on making some beef enchiladas.  My plan is to smoke the roast on the egg and take it to about 200 internal, shred it, fill tortillas with it and then bake it for a little while in the regular oven.  I haven't smoked a roast before so, will this plan work??  I don't want the meat to be mushy but fork tender.

    Sounds good! I sometimes go a little higher IT on my chuck roasts.  You can feel it when you are probing whether it is ready to pull or not.

    When I do a chuck roast I will smoke it at 250-275 until the IT temp is 160-165 then pull and foil and raise the eggs temp to 350 Your good pulling temp will be between 210-220. I start checking for tenderness about 205. It generally will take about 6-7hrs for a 3-4lb chuck
