Chuck Roast w/ Au Jus

GunnarGunnar Posts: 2,305

About 4 weeks ago cooked the Pepper Bock (vs Stoudt) Beef.....it came out a little sweet for my taste. Same process for this go round.....250+ indirect until beef hit 165...then into the pan of RRP's Au Jus with a sliced Spanish till internal temp of 205,,,roughly shredded, back in the Au Jus and on the BGE another hour...first meal was sandwiches with swiss...then on some fresh pasta...and lastly some beef enchiladas....no wood chips used but still had a light smoky flavor.

3 1/2 lb roast covers a little territory for two of us........

    Nicely done, I'm looking to do a chuck roast or two in the near future for two of the three reasons listed above.

    BTW I never have what some people call "left overs". Instead I call them "make aheads". Great re-purposes!

    haha...we'll go with make aheads....your au jus is more what I'm looking for with the beef ...as the weather cools will be interesting to see what kind of gravy it makes.

    Beautiful.  What was your cook time beginning to end? 
  • GunnarGunnar Posts: 2,305

    Dome at 260 till internal temp hits 165 - 2 plus hours

    Dome to 350 in the hot tub till internal temp breaks 200 - 2 plus hours

    Rough shred back in the tub for an hour.....6 hours total.

    Damn those look good.

    What is RRP's Au Jus? I must have missed that one, but sounds great.

    Thanks for posting, but I have since tweaked it a bit more adding the tasty oyster sauce!

    RRP's Au Jus Recipe - 3-14-16 Version


    This began as a basic recipe off internet which I tweaked MULTIPLE times so it's mine!


    1  14 oz Swanson Beef Broth (box – not the can)
    1  10-1/2 ounce can of Campbell's French Onion soup
    ½  of the soup can cold water
    1 T Worcestershire sauce
    1   teaspoon of garlic salt
    1   teaspoon ground garlic powder

    1   Wyler’s brand beef bouillon cube

    1 T Better Than Beef Bouillon

    1   teaspoon soy sauce

    1   teaspoon oyster sauce


    Optional: 1 T Penzeys Old English Prime Rib Rib


    Bring ingredients to a boil in saucepan, letting it boil for 1 minute then
    simmer still uncovered for 30 minutes. Strain and discard onions.  Serve au jus sauce hot. Can be made days in advance.  Makes 3 cups.  BTW I also make a batch of this and then pour it in large ice cube trays and freeze. Note, due to the salt content it does not freeze rock solid. Also keep stirring during the pouring stage if you opt to use the Penzey’s.


    One melted cube make a wonderful Bloody Bull!

    based on the origin of the recipe I used Penzy's Chicago Steak Seasoning.....keep tweaking...just keep us up to date.

    LOL - it's a work in progress! BTW I really suggest not using more than the 1 teaspoon of oyster sauce. One adds a nice new subtle kicker, but more ruined a batch for me anyway.

    Not too surprising - that is a lot of sodium in there.

  • Do you just salt and pepper the chuck or rub it with other seasonings?
