    Ok so who has some good cheap beef cut recipes?

    I mean like good ways of smoking and eating some cheap cuts. Recipe / meal ideas?

    Briskets are good, but, expensive. Optimally I'm looking for something that could freeze well for winter lunches, or larger scale meal ideas for bbq parties that I can bring, but not break the bank smoking 2 briskets.

    Thanks for the input!

    Beef ribs seem to always be cheap around here.

    Any recipes / cooking temps to hit to cook one?

    I'm thinking I want to try a lot of smoke for X amount of time, the wrap in tin foil and braise, etc.

    You want to be carefull about too much smoke, as they say"the thin blue smoke" is what you want, too much smoke can cause a creasote taste, chuck roast is a good choice and wont break the bank,,, Good Luck to ya,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Chuck roast....Smoke until about 160ish deg. Then foil and take out to 190 for sliceing, or 205 for pulling. Put some of your finidhing sauce in the foil.

    Make a finishing sauce using butter, onion, beef boulion, and worsty sauce. Yum.
