Chuck Roast T-Rexed?

Have a 3 lb chuck roast that is marbled pretty good. About 1 3/4" thick. Was thinking about doing it like a big steak T-Rex style. :huh: Pull the fire ring and drop the grill on the fire box. Any ideas? Thanks in advanced.

    Sounds good, and I know that thing looks like a steak, but it's not! You could probably do something kinda like a TRex. Sear, rest while you cool your egg off. Set it up indirect, wrap it in foil with some beef broth, and cook it for an hour or three until it's tender.

    Just an idear.
    Good luck!

    I with Natureboy you can sear it on the egg but braise it in another egg for hours or a cockpot or oven.

    i cook wegman's prime chuck "eyes" like i would cook a rib eye but with lots of hickory, rare and sliced 1/4 " but this is prime meat marbled like a rib eye. $8.99/lb
    i would not do this with regular grade meat and i have never gone past rare. i will do one next sunday and post pics.
    and wegmans here finally got tri tips but they seem like weenie pieces not the hunks o meat that others have posted pics of . if i remember, you did some, how? and were you happy with the result.
  • Thanks for the info. I decided to coat both sides in Montreal Steak and T-Rexed it at 700 dome for 1 1/2 min per side. Pulled it and have dropped the dome temp to 350. Double wrapped it in AF and added a can of golden mushroom soup, chopped onion, splash of Moores marinade and sliced shrooms. Cooking it indirect for a couple of hours and will post pics and results later. :whistle: Should I check with a Thermapen stuck through the foil in a couple of hours? Have left over Baby Backs in fridge for back up. :ermm:

    Forget the thermapen, and just use a toothpick. When it slides in and out and doesn't tug back on you, it's done. Happy eatin'.
