    Yesterday's PBC chuck roast cook

    Inspired by the earlier thread here I smoked up a 3lb and a 2.6lb chuck roast which where purchased from my butcher. Rubbed them with BIG Bad Beef Rub and smoked with applewood. Overall it took about 6 hours. I got the stall when internal temps hit 145°. Removed and wrapped wirh some New Belgium porter at 155°. Maybe should have waited until 160 but the cook was taking too long. (Read other's where totally done in 4-5 hours. Was a warm but windy day and had to crack the lid a couple times when the barrel temp fell below 240°, but the temps in general stayed in the 270 range. Overall, they turned out very well and we made Philly cheesesteaks.

    Looks great Steve! I have done a couple of chuck roasts on my PBC but still am to chicken to hang them.

    Hard to beat a beef sammich with onions and cheese my man!!


      Very nice looking cook, Steve. Of course I expected nothing less. I bet those sammies were tasty indeed.

      HC I hung the chuckys that I did using the double hook method (hook in a hook) that Noah uses for briskets so that the meat hung with its long axis vertical. I didn't worry a bit about them, thinking that the double hooks would provide adequate insurance. That said I have yet to have gravity do its pesky thing on a piece of meat in the PBC so maybe I'm just foolhardy.



        Steve, what IT did you take them to?


          Oh, yeah. Forgot to mention. Thanks. 205°

          I did a chuck roast back in November for the first time and this round turned out much, much better. Me thinks my roast last fall sat in the freezer too long...was dry. I didn't like the coffee rub I used either.

          I used two hooks in each as show in the one pic.

          Just had a sammich with some of the leleftovers. .. superb!

          Thanks Kathryn. Tonight it's chili with the the rest of the leftovers. Copycatting you! :-)

                Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
