    My "chuckies" usually go into a pan with some liquid, aren't you worried that it might dry out?

    Nope!!! Every chuckie I cook is done this way. Kinda my "turbo" twist on beef but it takes about 7 hrs. I add no liquid whatsoever @Griffin does them like this as well.

    Sounds interesting, then it comes out like pulled pork?

    What size chuckie do you start with? I see you guys talking about 8#+ chucks all the time but I can't find that anywhere. Costco has some that look like two packs that are 5#but that's the biggest I've seen. Really want to try this...

    Cheers-

    @ CharlieTuna - yes.

    These were 3lb chuck roast. I have a hard time finding anything over 3 1/2 lbs around here

    I started put them on at 9am and pulled at 4pm. They rested for 45 minutes then we ate. I pulled at 218.
