These things were fantastic. Only took one picture due to not knowing how they would turn out. Will do again for sure!

    +1. I would like to slice the point when I make brisket, but SWMBO loves burnt ends. If I make the burnt ends out of chuck roast, everybody wins!

    Hmm.. I had a friend try it with poor results. Said they're wasn't as much fat content in a roast as the point of a brisket.  Maybe I need to try for myself. Did you cube before cook or after. How long did you cook?

  • Not to hijack @Rac 's thread, but I did these recently as well with some pretty good results.  I put two 4-5 lbs roasts on (in hindsight WAYYY too much meat for just two people) indirect at 250dF until the roasts read 165df IT.  At that point, I pulled and foiled until 195dF IT.  Then I cubed each, transferred to two drip pans and sauced them, then put back on the smoker at around 300-350dF for about two more hours.

    Pretty good stuff and I ate a lot of it cold/reheated.  Hickory was used for smoke.

    This was only 1 chuck about 4 lbs. Only me and my wife.

    I used Bad Byron’s butt rub.

    Rubbed and put in refrigerator for a few hours

    Cooked indirect @ 250-260 grid temp till about 160-165 (about 3 hours)

    Pulled and foiled and back on till 190-195 (about another hour)

    Cubed (about 1 inch pieces) put in pan then added a little more rub and BBQ sauce

    Back on uncovered for about an hour

    Mixed everything up and started bringing temp up. I cooked for about another hour and ended up with a temp about 375
