Us folks here in west Michigan are lucky to have a lot of places with excellent brew.

      Glad it turned out!

        I smoked two 3 lb chucks today that I dry brined on Wednesday. I started them on my Kamado Joe Classic at 9:30 am after a nice coating of bbbr. By 2 PM they were in a stall at 157 degrees. At 4 PM they were still in a stall so I crutched them at around 4:30. I had company coming over at 6 PM and wanted to hurry things along but i couldn't hurry them on the Kamado because the chucks were sitting above two racks of St Louis ribs. I decided to fire up the PK Grill and finish the chuckies at 350 degrees. I quickly brought the chucks up to 207 and held them there for about an hour and a half. I grilled red, yellow and orange peppers along with onion lollipops on skewers for Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches. I grated extra sharp provolone and then assembled the sandwiches with the cheese and melted it under the broiler and then let people assemble their sandwiches from there. It was amazing and the chuck was shreddable and had some crispy crust even though I crutched it after 2 hours in a stall. The meat was extremely moist and flavorful and came from Costco. Thanks for sharing your recipe Pit Boss.

          Good idea about the onion lollipops on skewers, Don Jr . I'm going to have to give that a try. Thanks! Sounds like you had a feast with those chuckies. Enjoy the leftovers.

            Thanks Kathryn. I can also confirm after last nights dinner that the chuck does indeed make great nachos.

                I plan on doing a couple of these today on my WSM. Has anyone tried injecting them to keep the moisture up, or would I be better off just adding a little broth when I wrap them?

                  Injecting won't hurt for sure but I don't bother. A little broth at the time you wrap works great!

                  And welcome to The Pit! We're glad you're here.

                        Chuck Roast has a nice beefy flavor and you can't beat the price compared to other beef cuts. Where I live brisket costs $8.99 per/lb for choice, but chuck is usually only $3.99 per/lb and tastes great. Nice cook!

                          In Hermosa Beach, Ca, Whole Paycheck, aka Whole Foods sells a usda choice grade brisket for $9.99 per pound. 5 miles down the road Costco sells a usda Prime grade brisket for $2.79 per pound. Personally I refuse to buy anything but usda Prime briskets. I will not pay more the $3.50 per pound.

                          Whole Paycheck--I like that, Breadhead. I wish we had a Costco nearby. I have to settle for whatever Walmart or Sam's Club has, which is NEVER the prime cut. Fresh Market sells prime flats for $$$ but I like to smoke packers anyway, even if I wanted to pay their exorbitant price.

                            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 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.

All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.
