Hi there[p]I am cooking a 3+ LB chuch roast about 2 1/2 inches thick or more. What internal do I need to have a medium rare center? Thanks in advance for the info. Using a 20 year old recipe. I will post when I'm done.[p]MAC

    i cooked a thick 2 lb chuck roast at 700 degrees....2 minutes each side...then closed both vents for 4 minutes. I was swimming in the juices.
    So i would do a 3 lber for 3 minutes each side at same temp, then close both cents for 5 minutes.

    Smokin' Todd,
    Way to go ther ST!! And big points with Mrs.MAC too!! Nice to tap into the forum, and see the sweet progression of the thread. The QUESTION. The ST ANSWER. The RESULTS and BIG POINTS. I like it.[p]I would have never known to do a chuck roast like that. Is in tender like a steak?? I used one in Chili once that was great, but haven't cooked one fully like a steak.[p]Well, y'all enjoy the weekend. I'm outa here.[p]Nature Boy. In nature. Tootaloo.

    Smokin' Todd,[p]Qin' is like SEX. You don't have to be good at to have fun. I should have used new lump. Couldn't hold 700 Deg. so it wasn't quite done when I pulled it off. So back on the EGG it went for a few more minutes per side and it STILL came out wonderful. Marinated it in a sweet and sour for two days. Soy, Brown sugar, white vinegar, a can of crushed pineapple, fresh ginger a little garlic and Wishesterire sauce. It was GRRR...ATE! Thanks for the help. Isn't NB a riot. Sorry that's a bad word at MSU. Mateen told everyone he is going to do it this year. GO GREEN ! ! ! My prediction is MSU & DUKE in the finals. [p]MAC
