Chuck Roast Burnt Ends

Had some chuck roast in the freezer and decided to try chuck roast burnt ends.

Very tender and quoting the wife..."WOW..these are really good!" I think I will count that as a success!

Used Oakridge Beef rub, that stuff is awesome.

250 at the grate indirect.
When the chuck roast hit 165 I foiled and put them back on and let them go to 190 - 195.
Cubed them, into an aluminum pan, added a little more rub and sauce. Aluminum pan back onto the egg uncovered for 2 more hours. I did stir the cubes at the one hour mark and again at the 45 minute mark. No real reason other than I cannot break the habit of checking on what I have cooking.
Took about 5 hours.

  • Nice!  That's in interesting variation of pulled beef.  I could see serving them this way with a group of people on occasion instead of serving the shredded beef sandwiches.  Good idea.

    Dave did you end up with any bark on these?

    These look great.

  • I've been itching to try a bone in chuck roast side by side with a pork butt.
  • Curios on the bark. The cook looks absolutely awesome!!!

    Awesome! I so want to try this. SWMBO loves burnt ends, but I like to slice and eat the point. Now we can both get our favorites. Thanks!

    Some of the pieces had a nice bark to them and some didn't.  Those that had that nice char on them were my favorite.  I went to get some last night for supper and they were almost gone.  I asked the wife if she had given some to her friend?  Reply "no, those things are just so darn good, I keep eating them like popcorn."  I'll can see I will be making these again.
