    Is chuck the only cut that would work here?

    I love this recpe i've done it 4-5 times! I like your Garlic and Chipotle twist on it. Did you finish it in the oven or continued in the smoker?

    I just followed the recipe but Im sure any fatty tough cut would work. Chuck is good though especially since I got it .89 cents/lb.


    Thanks, and yes I finished in the oven because my smoker doesn't go that high.

    Looks great! 7 bone roasts work great for this recipe too!
     
  10. I have a 3.5# chuckie looking for a home and this looks like a good one.

    Was there a rub or any spices on the roast before it hit  the smoke? SPOG perhaps? Did it marinate for a spell or rub and sit overnight?

    How much of the beer? A whole can/bottle? Don't want to pour out more than necessary, the cook gets what's left...

    Once pulled did you mix in the veggies, serve on top or are they just for the cooking and juices?

    Any further info is appreciated, Gonna toss this on the smoke tomorrow A.M.

    The seasonings if I recall was just kosher salt and LOTS of coarse ground black pepper. I used a whole 14.9oz can of guinness(of course make sure you pick up an 8-pack). And yes all the veggies and everything is mixed together at the end. My advice is be patient with a chuck, it's pretty stubborn the 3 times I have made this they havent got tender until 208-210F, when you can stick a fork in it and twist out a chunk of meat without any effort it is done. Also if there is too much residual liquid after its mixed up you can uncover it and reduce.

    Hope it turns out great, this is one of my favorites!
     
  12. Curious about the chipotles, did you use the canned ones in adobo sauce? This looks great, I wish I would have seen this sooner. Would have been perfect to make this afternoon.

    Sure did, about 2 of the peppers mashed up and a couple spoons of the adobo.
     
  14. Sweet! This is next on the smoking to-do list.

    Great QView Brandon! Simply awesome...this is now on my list of upcoming smokes!
     
  18. Thanks Brandon. This goes on tomorrow, weather not cooperating today and I can't spend all day babysitting. I have it zip up tight with some Dr. Pepper at the moment, I thought the sweet would add a  little contrast to the Chipotles. I like the rub with a lot of GP, that's they way I'm going with this as well. Then on with some hickory for a low and slow cook.

    I'll post an update and maybe even a pic or two if I can figure that part out.

    Thanks again, really looking forward to trying this.

    That looks really good! Great job.
     
  20. On the smoke now, wind, rain, weather. Joy. BUT looking good and off to get the stout I've forgotten on the last 3 trips to the grocery. They know me by name there...[​IMG]

    Also did Jeff's Chicken Lollipops and they came off at 165 and spot on 2 hrs. Look kinda great, but a little labor intensive. I'll try and post some pics if I can figure it out.

    No iphone here...
