Smoking my first chuckie

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Finally decided to thaw out this 5 buck chuck roast that I bought a while back. Seasoned it with Worcestershire and Montreal steak seasoning. Fired up the WSM with frontier lump.


Used a foil wrapped brick for a heat sink this time....worked pretty well. Temps stayed pretty steady at 250 to 275 pretty much all day....spiked to 300 at one time , but only for a short bit.


The internal temp of the roast is around 180 right now. At 4:30 ish....I plan on shooting for around 205 but I will be probing for tender as I go.....still pretty firm right now. I will post some pix later after I (hopefully) shred this and make some nice sangwitches outta this.


Tasted really good! Made sliders and we had fresh corn on the cob with it.

Chuck roast looks great, but being a WSM owner, I'm also interested in your cart. Can you show a picture without the bag of charcoal in front? And...how did you make it?

theres a bunch of pics here. i dont really have a blueprint , but its just a wooden platform with casters on it from harbor freight. the drop down table idea i stole from other posts on the VWBB....if you have any questions , feel free to ask.

Thanks, Hambone. I see you're a Calvin and Hobbes fan. One of the best cartoon strips ever, if not THE best!

 

I haven't gotten around to making my WSM more portable yet, but I plan to in the future. It's always great to see how others have done theirs. Right now, I keep it in the garage, and move it in sections. It's not that difficult, and I saved the cardboard shipping pieces that were in between the sections: they're great for putting the lid and middle section down without getting grease on the driveway or patio.

Hey bob....calvin n Hobbes arguably the best comic strip ever. I can't disagree.

Having the WSM on wheels is very handy. A lot of folks just put casters on the wheels or opt for a simple metal platform , but this thing kind of took on a life of its own.biggrin.gif
If you do one , I would advise covering the deck with metal of some kind....I made mine of wood because I did not believe that sparks would fall from the smoker......well , they don't. But they DO fall out of the chimney starter when you dump it in the smoker.....and that can be a fire hazard. I think I gotta cover that wood with metal now.

That looks delicious, Hambone!  Very nicely done!  I was a fan of Calvin n Hobbes too...

That looks great!  Christmas several years ago...we had a record snow.  Made Calvin and Hobbs snowmen!

Thanks for the good advice, Hambone...I still need to decide where the permanent location will be. We have a brick patio, but I'm thinking of setting up another area in the yard for my Webers. Not too much room, though, as I have a lot of trees.

 

Kat: You had enough snow in Alabama to make snowmen? Are you sure you didn't use a Transmogrifier?  wink.gif
