    i bought a beef chuck arm roast to smoke sunday, along with two sage fatties, a pack of skinnies, 2lbs of jalapenos to make ABT's, and some meaty beef ribs. any tips for an arm roast? i have never seen one of them before. of course, i have never looked for them either. i had only done a couple of roasts in my pre-smoker days, and those were just regular old roasts. i am thinking it would be nice pulled. i also got some red wine vinegar to make a finishing sauce.
    i wanted a brisket, but they all sucked. like had a fat cap, and the other side was half fat; or they weighed like 20lbs.

    Here is what I smoked New Year’s eve. A beef chuck arm roast, weighing in at 2.66 lbs.; a package of beef chuck ribs, 3 small racks of ribs, weighing in at 2.30 lbs.; 2 sage fatties; a package of skinnies, 12 links total; and 2 lbs. of jalapenos, stuffed with cheddar cheese. I put it all in the smoker at 7:00 p.m. I pulled the ABT’s out at 9:00 p.m. I pulled the fatties and skinnies out at 10:00 p.m. Pulled the ribs out at 12:00 a.m., and finally pulled the roast at 2:00 a.m. I let the roast rest for a bit on the stovetop, and put it in the fridge. This morning I reheated it in the oven,set at 250°, to an internal temp of 195°. I would have thought the skinnies would be like fatties. They came out like the little smokies you buy at the store. I still liked them. For my rub, I put cayenne pepper; paprika; garlic powder; onion powder; turbinado sugar; and black pepper on the roast and the ribs. Naturally, the sage fatties don’t need any help in the flavor dept. for my mop, I put apple juice in a bowl, and added chili powder and garlic powder. I foiled the ribs at 11:00 p.m. I ate a lot of the ABT’s and some skinnies last night.
