    I cooked them both, is that cheating?

    Anyway, I am wondering which of these two you would pick to cook as a roast and why? Trying to get better at picking meats.

    My pre-cook thoughts were that I like the marbling on the right but it's got that very pronounced sinew which I fear will be tough. No pronounced sinew on the left, maybe some fat that I should have trimmed but minimal marbling. I thought the one on the left would be the most tender and juicy coming off the grill. This photo is post 18-bour dry brine.

    I'll post my observations on the cook a little later after I read some tips and observations about the two cuts

        I'd braise th LH one as a Roast, due to less interstitial marbelin, smoke th RH one to as close to perfecktion as my limited abilities will allow....

        As a side note, th twain of em, ground together, would, most likely, make fer some dang dang good burgesas...

        Wha??? Trim??? Trim Wha??? Fat???


        Gasp!


        Phewwwwwww...............

        >Breathe In,...............Breathe out, .....Think bout how wonderful puppies smell, warm Summer rain, an even how a Dolphin's kisses feels..........<

          Also, Troutman NEVER underestimate how incredibly Life Changin a Dolphin's kisses can be...there is, in my global travels, no other such an experience, or even comparable ...

        Right one if I'm smoking it. I like the marbling flecked throughout.

          Well if you could chuck wood with smoke. Than you could probably smoke chuck with wood. Right.
          Or is that if a wood chuck could chuck wood.
          Somebody please help me. 😳😂😂

            I suppose it depends upon how many Chuck’s a woodchuck could chuck.

          #8
          One of these days I'ma gonna smoke either a whole clod or roll. Since I cook for only 3 might wait until fall to freeze the rest for winter.

            Definitely the right one due to the marbling.

              How much chuck would a beef chuck cook if a beef chuck could cook chuck?

              Smoke both of them then cut into cubes, and make "Chuck Burnt Ends", or "Poor Man's" burnt ends. Enjoy them with PBR.
              Now if I were to roast one it would be the one on the right due to the marbling.
              Better yet, roast both and compare. Learn by trial and error.

                Not funny.

              After 60 hours in a 138* SV bath, it won't matter. They will both be fork tender, and delicious.

              Yes to both. Lol. Not helpful, I know, I just love cooking chuckies. Pot roast, ground for burger, grilled, smoked..... don’t matter much to me. Just get it to safe eating temp somehow and I will devour! Looking forward to your observations from the cooks!
