    Poorman brisket love

    Well, this turned out amazing. Grabbed a 2.5 chuck roast “steak” at my local grocery and decided it was time to kick up my Smokin’ game another level.

    Basically prepped it like a brisket. Was out of my homemade “Meathead” rubs, so decided to try a local Quebec rub dude.

    The Apollo was rock steady at around 250 for the entire cook. About 5 hours in the pit and then foiled for 1.5 hours. Faux cambro for the rest. The BBQ Quebec Bourbon chunks were amazing.

    Long story short: my family flipped out at how good this turned out. And I got teary eyes at the smoke ring. My Meathead “Texas Juice” was splattered on top, and I think my wife will actually let me upgrade smoker next year after cleaning off her plate!!!

    Sorry for my thumb in the pic. I am not a pic wiz yet!

    quick edit. Added a pic of the cut right after unpacking and before the dry brining.

              Very nice! I can't see chuck roast ever taking the place of brisket for me, but they are both great in their own way. Also, the "poor man's brisket" around here would cost at least 50% more per lb than actual brisket, unless it was on sale, in which case it would be about the same price.

                Same here. Prime brisket is $3.49 @ Costco. Chuck roast about $5.99

                It's the hackers' fault, not yours. You probably did everything right.
