    Smoked Chuckie for Slicing

    I'm going to smoke a 3¾ lb Chuckie tomorrow for #stayincookout. This time I'm going for sliceable, not pulled been. Clint's recipe on the free side says the IT for sliceable is 180°F. Does that seem right to everybody? Or should I go a few degrees higher, like 185-190?

        SnS (original, plus and XL)
        DnG pans, 6 or 7 of these
        and, maybe some other toys as well

      I agree. I go a bit higher than 180 but try a probe test to see how tender it is.

          And people think brisket can vary, some chucks are like jigsaw puzzles.

        Chuck I did last Saturday was 3.5 pounds. Pellet pooper at 250 for 4.5 hours, and bumped to 325 for about 45 minutes.
        Internal was 185 when I pulled it and I plan to do it again tomorrow.
        Perfect slices. REALLY nice bark. And to my taste better than a brisket.
        No more brisket for me.

          I like the thought that brisket is overrated. Maybe I can keep buying them for $1.99/lb if enough people come around to that idea.

        I did some SVQ Chuck that's awesome. SV for... um.. 24 hours? 30? Something like that. Smoke to 140.

          I'm sure it was great. I love SV and SVQ cooking. But this is one I'm doing for #stayincookout tomorrow. No time for a lengthy SV step.
