    Chuck Ideas

    Hello everyone! I’m going to be cooking up a few chuck roast in the coming days for the family. I was wondering if any of you had some recipes to recommend of how we could use that smoked chuck roast in different ways throughout the week. We certainly plan to have some straight up, and we’ve had plenty of smoked chuck roast chili over the winter, so I plan to skip that one. I was thinking maybe a taco bar, and maybe smoked chuck roast mac & cheese. Beyond that I’m drawing a blank, so any recipes or ideas you could suggest would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all!

    Pulled beef sandwiches come to mind as do quesadillas

      Tacos would be great. Another thought would be pot pies. And you can sub it in just about anything that calls for ground beef. Lasagna come to mind as does spaghetti sauce. You could also try it in fried rice. I think nachos would be great with smoked beef.

        Digging the pot pie idea. Maybe Shepard’s pie since we have quite a few potatoes. Thanks!

      I just had shredded beef tacos last night. I dry brined and made a Mexican style rub with Chili powder, pepper, garlic, cumin, chipotle, Mexican Oregano, and Cilantro. I wrap those in foil instead of butcher paper though to soften the bark a bit and usually sprinkle a little more rub on after shredding. Next time I'll probably cook two or a bigger roast and make enchiladas the next night.

          WAIT! WHAT? Burnt ends from a chuckie? What is this voodoo you speak of?
          Seriously, I do at least two chuck roast a month, and it never once occurred to me to turn the leftovers into burnt ends.

          When I smoke chucks I'll do two at a time so I can slice or pull one and turn the other whole roast into burnt ends. Depending on how much time I have, will smoke to anywhere between 170-190, cut into cubes, toss in a pan with some sauce, and either let 'em smoke another few hours or toss on a hot grill until nice and sticky. Sometimes will sauce a second time while finishing. Again, it all depends on how much time I have.

        I love omelettes with shredded smoked chuck roast and sharp cheddar cheese.

          Also making creamed beef with smoked chuck roast makes the best SOS

            Ha! I doubt I could sell the wife (Army vet) on that one. Though she’s always happy with my smoking adventures 🤔😂

            I ate SOS quite often between first watch and middle watch while I was in the Navy.

            25 years later, I still make it at home.

            A lot of things made with ground beef are better when you use pulled chuck roast instead.

              I enjoy pulled pork omelets so I'm sure shredded smoke chuck ones would be yummy too.

                I love tossing leftover pulled pork into a big pot of red curry lentils (I mix the rice right into this dish to make one giant pot of goodness). I see no reason why pulled chuck wouldn't be great in there.

                  Treat like a brisket but take it to 208° to pull. And throw some of the pulled beef in a hot skillet with chipotle or ancho sauce to make barbacoa like Ernest did the other day

                    Oh no that's not barbacoa. That's chipotle restaurant fake barbacoa. The real barbacoa is beef cheeks

                    Ernest, I like dirty barbacoa, ever heard of it?

                  Large cheese pizza from Papa Murphy's with smoked chucky on it is a huge hit at our house.

                    Dang! That is simple and easy. I think that would go over very well.
