Any ideas for chuck roast on BGE?

edited 8:26PM in EggHead Forum
I wanted to try a chuck roast on the egg but I haven't found any ideas yet. Does anyone have something they've tried before?

    venona7,[p]I make Clays pulled Beef BBQ all the time. It's great. If you don't have any Dizzy Pig substitute your favorite rub.[p]

    Qbabe has a great recipe for chuck roast in a dutch oven. I had to search the archives. She posted it in 2003. Hope this helps.

    venona7,[p]If you don't happen to have a Dutch oven, as in the previous posts, a double thick heavy duty aluminum foil pouch works O.K.[p]gdenby

    Hey Rumrunner,[p]Ever cooked a whole chuck roll? I keep eyeballing them at Sams. Something like $1.91 a pound for the whole ones. I've had them cut me pieces 3 or 4 inches thick which cooked up really nice.[p]~thirdeye~

    thirdeye,I think that would be a great low and slow cook. Maybe inject the roll to keep it moist.

  • Yesterday's chuck roast barbacoa was based on this:[p]
    SOUTH TEXAS STYLE BEEF BARBACOA[p]1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder
    1 ½ teaspoons black pepper
    1 tablespoon dried oregano
    1 ½ teaspoons chile powder
    1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
    2 ½ - 3 ½ pound bone-in chuck roast[p]Didn't feel right without some cayenne, paprika, and cumin.[p]Smoked it over apple, basted it with some Goya Ginger Beer, for grins.[p]No tortillas on hand, so pulled some with a pair of forks and made a sandwich with some bbq sauce. Awfully good eatin'.
