Chuck Roast Tacos (pics)

I had a 4 1/2 lb Chuck Roast and a free Sunday afternoon. I made a dry rub consisting of Cumin, Garlic powder, chili powder, black pepper, salt and a touch of Cayenne. Put it on the Egg at @275 with some pecan wood until temp reached 170. At that time put it into a tub with some garlic cloves, onions, red peppers and about half a dark beer.  Covered and back she went until temp reached 215.  Pulled and put back on the Egg for about 15-20 minutes uncovered at around 350 for the liquid to render down a little.

 Made a batch of Pico and served with some corn tortillas.

 Kids loved them and even I have to say they were pretty fantastic!! ( I am my own worse critic!)

Can't wait to try them again!!

    Those look outstanding!  


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Chuck roast is my nemesis. Haven't made one that wasn't leather.

    Mmm...  Looks delicious!  I have a chuck roast to cook up this week too.  Nice idea of using it for tacos!

    Strong cook & prolly one of my more favorite cooks. We generally do a chuckie and a chicken for mixed tacos.
