    3# boneless Angus Chuckie, rubbedi it down with a rub I made: rosemary, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne, kosher salt, black pepper, dry mustard, thyme.

    Gonna take it to 195(no foil on the smoker is the plan), then wrap it in foil and toss it in a cooler for a while.

    rubbed:

    I like your wood combo, I use it often and it's a keeper. Those are going to be some savory tacos. Thanks for sharing.

    thanks

    the tacos were really good. 1 on a soft white corn tortilla and 1 on a soft flour tortilla.

    I pretty much use Hickory for everything. If I can get cherry, apple or oak I like those as well..

    I am looking forward to the hash tonight.

    gonna run some of the chuckie meat through the food processor(a couple pulses), then add it to some pan fried potataoes and onions. topped with a couple sunnyside up eggs. Should be good eats.
