    First Chuck Roast

    Been doin' this a while, but today was my first chuck roast cook.

    Had a 3# nicely marbled Angus chuck roast from Costco here, and wanted to do something other than pot roast with it. SWMBO didn't think smoking it was such a good idea, but I invoked the "Trust Meathead" clause and proceeded.

    It dry-brined for two days days uncovered, and a third day covered with plastic wrap (rain yesterday, it IS Seattle).

    Went on the Weber and SnS today about 1PM with a BBBR coating, and some Alder chips. The SnS combo was great as always, and held temps rock solid the whole cook. Hit a stall at 172F that lasted a bit long, but finally pushed through. I pulled it at 178F as we were getting tired of waiting and the rest of dinner was ready, and rain was threatening again. Did I mention we're near Seattle?

    SWMBO declared the sliced result one of the best things I've ever cooked, which is always good for the ego. It was indeed moist and tasty. A total success. I'm instructed to go find some more chuck roasts, and maybe cook two at a time. OK by me!

    Sorry, no pics

            Great job, Chucks are becoming my most favorite smoke. The little critters sure can take a while to cook all the way through though. Costco seems to have the best selection for these in my area.

              I did a chuck roast just on my gas grill a few weeks ago. It cooked a little bit uneven, but for the most part, came out great! Will have to try smoking one next.

                That is a great cut of meat if cooked low and slow. Nicely done.

                    It's hard to beat a good chucky.

                        One of my favorite things to make with leftover smoked chuck roast is some breakfast hash to go with fried eggs.

                        Oh so good!
