    First time Chuck...

    Wrote yesterday that I got boneless chuck ribs and chicken thighs. Then all that I read last night and this morning about Chuck roasts? I'm in, just went out and got a 3.3 lb Angus Choice Chuck roast. I'll attach the pics shortly.

    I've seen the PBC chuck discussions and love it. I will report back how the big green egg does.

    I typically use royal oak, my neighbor surprised me with a big fat bag of BGE charcoal which I also like alot, just a bit more exp. Anyway, the firebox is lit, the flameboss 200 set at 250 and the chuck is probed. Cooking on the to-p setting of adjustable rig. One piece of split locally sourced (back yard) red oak.

    coffee/sugar/salt/cayenne rub

    Happy Super Bowl Sunday, looking forward to eating and reading and pics of indulgence.

    Bit more thorough an introduction. My name is Chris and I suppose I am not a vegan but wanted to a show a face behind the name. I live in Southwick, MA and have a wife and 3 carnivores.

      That's surely not Southwick, MA in the pic?

    I especially like a little house BBQ sauce to keep chuck interesting. Regardless, it's a wonderful way to cook chuck. Excited to see the results!

        Where I call home base. Plenty of prep space outside and umbrella if I need it for rain or whatever. Inside I have a pool shed/cabana deal that has toilet h/c running water and the fridge holds plenty of protein. Spice Rick and butcher paper on a roll overhead.

        Just added thighs to rack under chuck. Everything looking a little anemic right now.

                Chuck is 189 here. Rib pcs still need 3 hours. No drip or water pan and no heat deflector used, 250 as mentioned earlier, and a VERY humid cooking environment. Whatever it is so far so good. Overloaded the 8 lbs of ribs on the bottom 18 inch grate. Who knew what 8lbs would spread out like on the grate??? Anyway, thighs off and now plenty of room and air for the ribs and chuck and things are humming along nicely. I just informed the Warden (that's the mrs, get used to reading that, everyone in town calls her that, even kids, not sure that she likes it much but oh well it stuck and I'm not unsticking it) that I'm making nachos. She said she is making them w organic ground turkey and I said no they will be made with pulled angus chuck. Turkey is fine. Just not for nachos, and not for super bowl nachos.

                Mhmm, maybe I'll pull the meat and serve the chips ontop of the meat. The chips are invited guests not the other way around.

                Ok, the beef no longer looks anemic. The chuck is taking its time approaching 7 hrs and at 195. I'm I. No hurry.

                The nachos, complete w pulled chicken cooked earlier before .... really, really good. And a boatload of chicken meat ready to add to plates of nachos.

                Facefuls of chuck and ribs in my future.

                Ribs........ fantastic. Some more tender then others of course. And those that were, were great. Those that weren't were great.

                If walmart. Had those on a regular basis, boneless, they could become regular snackers. Not dry at all and great beefy flavor. Some had sauce and some didn't. Both vvg.

                Chuck in the cambro. Came off the egg at 205.

                    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                    the good one grill
                    The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                    Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                    Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                    The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                    The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                    Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                    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.
