My First Smoke; Chucks.

Discussion in 'Beef' started by tripwire759, May 18, 2014.

  1. Well the time has arrived and the two Chucks are on. Set the MES to 250 at 900 and put the meat on at 1000. Looking to get 165 the WIF and put back in until 205-210. Pulled beef is what I'm shooting for.
    I noticed I wasn't getting a lot of smoke out of her, and understand that you want a thin blue smoke so I cracked the chip chute a little to get a little more air in there. Hopefully that works.

    Now time to cut the grass, clean the grill, and wipe the chrome on the Harley.

    Here are a few pics.

  3. Got the to 165 and now WIF'd. Sprayed with Apple juice and put back in. I'll wait to about 190 to start the jalapeños.

    I really hope they turn out.
     
  4. The ABTs look great however the chuck in foil would not push over 200. I had the smoker at 250 and pushed it to 275 to offset the amount of ABTs I put in. I finally pulled them off and have them resting I the cooler right now. They are very tender as the probe sliced through them but it never reached the "pull" temp. We will see in 15 minutes.

    I put 10 jalapeños in the smoker and the two chucks. Did I over load it and that caused the stall?

    Nope, each piece of meat is a little different.... I've had some stall for 45 min, & some for a few hours... IMHO, it would have happened with or without the ABT's... Ya did not overload !
     
  6. Ok that works for me. Well I must say not too bad. Both pulled very easy and was just as tender as any other I have ever had. Good smoke flavor on both the meat and the ABTs and the family loved it.

  7. If you got good smoke flavor & your family loved it then I'd say you did an excellent job!  [​IMG]
