7 Bone Beef Roast

So I was in IGA the other day and I seen what is call a 7 Bone Roast. I for one do not have any experience with this cut. according to Wiki: 

"The 7-bone roast or 7-bone steak is from the chuck section of the steer or heifer and it includes a cross cut of the shoulder blade. The bone is shaped like a "7", which gives the steak its name. The steak differs from the 7-Bone Roast only in thickness. 7-Bone steaks are cut 1/2- to 3/4-inch thick. This cut is also known as "center cut pot roast".

Like most of the chuck, the 7-Bone roast or "steak" is generally considered a rather tough cut of meat and is most suitable for a long cooking in liquid at a low heat such as braising."

It was such a beautiful cut of meat and had some nice marbling in it that I had to try it. So I picked up a smaller one 3.5lbs (10$). 


I coated it with olive oil and then rubbed in Costco steak seasoning. I got the tip somewhere that if you use oil instead of a vinegar it causes the spices to open up and be absorbed by the meat. Instead of just siting on the surface. And it does.  And I let that sit on the counter while getting my egg ready. 

I set the egg for indirect with a drip pan (I have the BGE round drip pan) underneath about half full of water. I ran it about 210 until the meat hit 150. Then i wrapped in foil and pored a little water into the drippings to get moving (I stirred them) then poured the water /drippings into the foil. (I read somewhere that this piece likes to dry out, But it sure didn't seem like it to me). And i cooked for about 2 more hours and it hit 150.  I didnt want to let it go much longer as the bones were already pulled away and it was starting to shred nicely. So I pulled it and let it rest for an hour or so. Then I shredded it. I did it with my hands it was so tender.

The eat:
I was blown away at how good this was. It had a few different textures in to it which made it nice, not over powering or chewy. This was something I will defiantly do again.
