    Do you wrap chuck roast?

    I have a chuck roast on the smoker. I've only done a couple chucks in the past, and always followed the same process as brisket which (for me) includes wrapping with foil. Out of pure laziness, I'm thinking of not wrapping this. What do you say, pit dwellers?

    I've never wrapped a chucky either, and they always turn out great.

      I usually do. I'll pop them in a covered foil pan after they come out of the stall around 180 if I like the bark. Also add a little beef broth. I know...……..brazing it but that's how we like them.

        I have done this one time just as an experiment. and somehow, the bark got even more intense... I need to try it again just to see if results are the same. Was not my intentions. I was just hoping to keep some of the juices. (did not put broth in) just put it in a foil pan with tin foil cover.

        Doing a couple today as a matter of fact. 7.5 hours hanging in my Black Beauty (PBC) just put in foil pan with a little beef broth and moved to the oven.

      I wrap chuckies now because I always end up with such a significant bark on them compared to everything else. This is true in both my PBC and kettle. I’m a big fan of bark but I need to be able to chew it! Wrapped my last one and it was awesome, still lots of bark but it softened up a little for me.

      I think my last one I put in a foil pan after the meat had enough smoke. I left the meat uncovered and finished the cook that way. I don't remember if I added any liquid to the pan, but I don't think so. Just getting the meat in an open pan will create some juice and slow evaporation. It turned out well.

        I don't wrap. I have never wrapped anything and I can say once or twice I have had some chewy parts of bark. I have been meaning to do a wrap cook but always seem to forget. Think it might have something to do with age.

        FishTalesNC After a looooooong stall, the bark was getting pretty treelike, so I wrapped to finish off like you said. Getting close to pulling.

        As with everything except ribs, I wrap chucks too. I treat them like pork butts with brisket seasonings.

        I've followed Huskee's lead and wrap both chuckies and butts at 180.
        In foil, haven't tried butchers paper yet.
        Bark has been really good and they disappear off the table really fast....

          Alright - here we go. The result is good but not great. My chuck game is not up to the level of my brisket, pork butt, etc. Just need some more experience. And the practice is edible!

          Nothing wrong with that.
          I sometimes get bark like that depending on the smoke or the piece of meat I buy.
          I'd eat that every day of the week.

            Me too. Which is good, because I'll be eating it every day this week!

            Edit: the bark is actually good. Overall it's just a little dry. Next time I'll wrap a little earlier.

          Looks great!! I wrap mine at 175, remove at 208 or so. Love the chuckies!!! I usually chop rather than pull. Those tacos look great!! This site is not diet friendly, lol.

            I always wrap chuckie. My first one i didnt and it was dry as a bone. Now i wrap in foil and use that as an excuse to pour a little beer and hot sauce in there.

            maybe i need to wrap because i get them from costco
