    Oh yeah, a big thanks to Ron.

    Ron suggested when wrapping my chuckies to use a foil pan and make up some beef base to put the chuckies in for the finish.
    So I made up 3 cups of beef base using Tones beef base and transfered the chuckies into the foil pan, added the beef base and covered with foil. Then I put them into the MES already at 190*, set it for 12 hours at 190 degrees (so they would be ready when I was, lol) and went to bed. Checked the MES when I woke up and it was going good so I did some office work and then took them out for pulling.

    Man were they tender!!!! I had to be careful when taking them out of the foil cause they just wanted to fall apart on their own. And talk about juicy, man were they ever!!!!!

    Out of the foil and ready to be pulled....

    Pulled and ready to eat, look at that juice....mmmmmmmm

    Made a big sammich with some american cheese on top and I gotta say it was the best pulled chuckie I've ever had!!!!! Mmmmmmmmmm good!!!!! [​IMG]

    Thanks again Ron for the tip!!!! [​IMG]

    Hope ya'll enjoyed the qview.... [​IMG]

    MAN oh Man there steve you get the medal for bravery and stick to it. I would have posted a picture of the smoker giving out alittle smoke and stuck it to the door to the porch and sat back in the comfy cousy chair inside in the warmth and dreamed about smokin something. My freezer is not at -6 degrees. Great job on your smoke [​IMG]have to go out for the superman preformance. Great looking food too.

    You can find them on Amazon. Just search 'bear paws'. They are about $14 bucks on Amazon. There are probably other places to get them as well.

    I found them at The Barbecue Store. Search for "Bear Paws" item 1001-BR. Took a lot of time "pawing" (Can't believe I said that) their e-pages to find them. Bought 2 pair 11.86 per pair, plus shipping FEDEX (the I'm REALLY not in a rush when they show up).
