Smoked Chuck Roast Tacos on the WSM

  1. So I went ahead and took all y'alls advice and tried out smoking chuck roast.  I figured if they turned out right, they'd make good tacos.  Here's how it went:

    I went out and purchased two 3lbs chucks.  Didn't really know what to look for, so I went with the most identical meat selection.  I prepared them like I would a pork butt.  Mustard base and then I sprinkled a cajun seasoning over that.  Let that sit over night.

    After setting up the WSM , i cooked these puppies at around 260 degrees for about 3 hours.  Every hour i went and sprayed them down with a beef broth and worcestershire sauce blend. I placed an aluminum pan on the second rack to collect all the juices.  After they both hit a solid 170, i pulled them off and placed them in the aluminum pan, and then wrapped it in foil.  I cooked them until the internal temp hit 202.  All the while, spraying it down with the broth i made.

    After pulling them off the smoker, I placed them in a cooler for 2 hours to chill.  The end result was amazing.

    Hope to hear some suggestions on how to improve my concoction!!!!  Thanks for all the advice.
