    Chuckie help.

    I'd like to do a chuck roast so that it turns out like a Sunday dinner roast. Juicy and able to be sliced, not pulled. I have a PBC, and a Weber kettle with a SnS. Ideas please.

    We should prolly get David Parrish to weigh in on this... but I think if you take it to 195-200 you will end up with a nice slicing roast.

      I was going to ask Pit Boss... But he'll just tell me to use the PBC. 😳

    Definitely needs 200+, sometimes 205+ to get pull tender.

      Hmmm... Slicing VS Pulling.

      I'd cook it to 203° just like a brisket😎.

      Just my humble opinion.

        David Parrish here. I will NOT say you have to use the PBC=). (though PBC does a great job) I've made many an awesome chuckies using the SnS. I'd take it up to 203F and let it rest in a Faux Cambro at least 30 minutes. It'll slice real nice. Come back with pics!

          Cook it just like a brisket. Low and Slow with Big Bad Beef Rub. Yes to water. A basket full of charcoal should be plenty.

        Well, I'll try the Pit Boys method with the Pit Boss SnS and hopefully it goes well. Costco has a 2 pack of nice thick Choice chuck roasts for about 25 bucks. How long do you think the cook should take? David Parrish I'll probably cook one and FS pack and freeze the other.

          Go for the best marbling and BIG uniform sized pieces you can find. Chucks cook faster than brisket, but I'd plan on cooking them 10 to 12 hours just to be safe. Here's our recipe for the SnS: http://www.abcbarbecue.com/#!pulled-...ck-roast/c1482

            Followed the directions to the letter. 12 lit briquets, chimney worth added after 20 minutes with a few pieces of applewood and 1 qt water in trough. Temps hit 225 10 minutes in and stayed between 225 and 233. Foiled at 145 IT and back in until 203 IT. Total cook was 4 Hours 10 minutes. Removed roast and wrapped in 2 folded bath towels in a small box while finishing my sides. Cooked a foil pack of celery root chunks with remaining coals. Water lasted just over 5 hours. Pan juices were greasy and too smokey/bitter to use. Juices in the foil were very good.

            Thanks for the help.

            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

            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.
