    Planning on my first Chuckie tomorrow and was intrested in your recommendations for a finishing sauce after it is pulled. Thinking of trying Rivet's KC style.

    Let me bump this post. I can't offer any suggestions, perhaps someone else can.

    I'm sure Rivet's sauce would be great on the chuckie, go for it!
    How are you cooking it, meaning temp and such.

    Thanks, FIU. I don't have it on yet. Rubbed with a light application of my standard rub I use for ribs and pp - brown sugar based with onion, garlic, herbs, etc. Not heavy like I do ribs.

    Plan to smoke at 225-250 with lump and hickory to 165 then foil to 205.

    Sound OK? This is my first one.

    Will do Qview.

    Sounds like a great plan, good foiling time and temps.
    You don't technically need to use a sauce for a chuckie, Rivet's is a good choice if using one but they are usually so tender than you could go either way.
    Since it is your first be aware that there is a good chance you will run into a stall during the smoke, depending on the size and thickness of the chuckie will make a difference but normally they will stall for 45 minutes to an hour+

    Good luck, you're going to love it.

    Easy. Jeff's Sauce, Dewey's Dirt Road Sauce, Bone Sucking Sauce or Blue Front Sauce. [​IMG]
