Arm Roast wood selection

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Have a new, seasoned Masterbuilt electric smoker and ready to break it in. I've selected an arm roast, a dry rub of paprika, black pepper, salt, mustard seed, nutmeg, garlic, allspice, sugar, ginger, thyme, sage, red pepper, cinnamon, and vanilla bean. The only thing I'm stuck on is the wood selection. My wife doesn't like a strong smoke flavor but I want to know its been smoked. I was thinking Pecan but wasn't sure if there was a better option. The meat is still thawing in the fridge so I have time to get some input.

apple is pretty mild.. and may complement the spices you're working with there well.

What's an arm roast?

Apple is mild as well and cherry IMO.

Good Luck

Pecan is a great flavor wood. Goes well with just about anything and isn't too strong....especially for beef chuck.....which is where the arm roast comes from.

Mesa Dave, it's a cut from the chuck, in the forequarter also known as a blade. Typically slow roasted, stewed, or ground.

Turned out nice with Pecan. Added some stuffed cherry peppers for the last half hour.

Looks real nice, Smoke. Interesting cut of beef for smoking. Might try it some day. Prime Rib for today.
