Pulled Chuck Roast

edited February 2014 in EggHead Forum

Chuck roast was seasoned with Tatonka Dust.





Then smoked with cherry indirect in the Big Green Egg on the grate at 275º.

When the meat temp hit 140º it was panned and basted in juices we had left over from 9 Hour Burgundy Mushrooms and then turned over in the juices at 180º to keep everything moist until the roast reached 205º for pulling.


Here is the chuck roast being pulled after it had rested.





Sautéed onions and peppers and then added the pulled chuck roast.


Put the pulled chuck roast/green pepper/onion mixture on ciabatta buns, added swiss cheese and heated in the oven till the cheese melted.


Here is the pulled beef sandwich, the flavor was outstanding!


Thanks for looking!

  • Looks great. I've thought about smoking a chuck roast like that and using the meat for a "smoked chili".
  • I gotta try this soon. Haven't done a chuck roast yet, but all the recent posts are driving me crazy!

    Looks outstanding.  I googled Tatonka dust and it looks like this is one of those rubs that actually contains charcoal.  Definitely sounds interesting!

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

  • Strong work!!! Did one myself sunday and did Tacos, but those Sammies are next up!!

    It appears to contain lots of things that, umm, aren't food.  :D  Still, that's one of the best looking chuck cooks I've seen in a LONG time!

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    The trick to chuck roast is to take it up to an internal of between 205º - 215º.   The easiest way to do it is to keep it simple, cook it exactly like a pork butt but leave it on longer (205º-215º).  At that internal finishing temp it will pull easily with 2 forks and you can then mix it with whatever you want to.  Works every single time assuming you have chuck roast and not arm roast, bottom roast, etc. - The "cut" makes all the difference.
