Well guys I've been wanting to do some kind of pulled beef and dont know which way I shall go with this. On one hand I think brisket would be awesome for this but the last time I tried brisket it turned out ok but not what I expected. I cooked it all together and didnt separate the flat from the other part and it cooked uneven. So now I want to try beef again and dont know if I should do a brisket or chuckie. I want to do a brisket to get it down but money is kinda tight and I dont want to mess up. I heard a chuck roast is easier and comes out somewhat better. So what should I do? And which is better for pulled beef? I've read so much on here but it really hasnt gave me any conclusions...some people like one or the other. So if you had a choice what would you do giving you wanna impress some people and not buy a big chunk of meat?
HELP!!!! I'm torn and dont know what to do!!!

They are both awesome and around here they are pretty similar in price per lb. A brisket is usually bigger so it will usually cost you a bit more but that is because you are buying more lbs of meat. I normally find that Brisket and Chuckies are pretty close to the same price per lb. At least that is the what I have found around here. I always keep my eyes open for chuckies to go on sale then I put a few in the freezer.
Ive read if I were to pull it, to do it just like a butt....is that correct? Take it over 200 degrees?
Right now I'm doing a whole chicken and think I'm going to do a chuckie tomorrow....hope she comes out good.
