Guess what I’m making? 

5 1/2 lbs of chuck roast that’s about 3” thick + coffee rub + homemade-ish adobo.



Now I wait some more.  This is for a party tomorrow.  More pics to come.

    I swear there is nothing that smells beefier when cooking than a chuck roast.

    Update - temp went up pretty quick and it gave up a ton of “water.”  Yup, that’s what we’re calling it until it congeals and it betrays me.

    Temped at 205, but not really pully.  Pulled off the water and reserved in case I need to add some back when I pull it.  Flipped and recovered with the rest of the adobo.  Resting, covered in the kitchen while the peppers and onions cook down more.  Will put the meat on again later after it’s cooled a little so I can cook it more without running the IT up too much.  Egg is sitting at 350 and not much chance of lowering with the crack in the base.



    Dirty as hell from doing the yard.  Time for the big bathtub and a beer.  Cheers.

    Nice! I think I’d be tired of life before I’d be tired of tacos.

    Nice - how did it finish?  Also curious about the CRACK in your base . Pics?  I got a crack in my base ttoo and debating it I cook on it and risk all of Humpty Dumpty crashing down.

    edit:  I can’t stop looking at that beaver leg butt pool picture  :o

    Got lazy and on to other things last night, so I put it away until this morning.  Party isn’t until late afternoon.

    The crack runs down from the vent across the bottom of the base.  It’s been there for a couple of years maybe.  Egg is in a nest, so it’s not going anywhere.  I can hold low temps for a few hours and then they start to drift up and usually settle near 350.  I think it’s just expansion doing this.  I have a new base, just haven’t done the switch yet.

    What a shjtshow.  Super tough and couldn’t get it to pull.  25 minutes in the instant pot and it finally loosened up.  Cow drives the cook comes to mind.

    Just about late to the party.  Pulled pic later, had to run out of the house.

    You are moving the right direction soon (Beaver Creek, CO). Best liquor store name ever.

    Wouldn’t “Liquor Beaver” be even better?

    Depends. “Beaver Liquors” implies there are multiple liquors of the beaver (if you are in to that kind of thing). “liquor beaver” is more like a command (a different deal altogether but still...)
