Beef shoulder question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, I was hoping some folks could weigh in and help me out. I was at the local bjs the other day and saw a 6.5lb hunk of beef labeled "shoulder muscle 2" was reasonably priced for beef so I grabbed it......although I'm not exactly sure what I have here, it's not a chuck roast I know that, perhaps a section of the clod.....anyway Im thinking about cooking it on the wsm, but I'm not sure which direction to go, I don't smoke beef often, and I'm uncertain of the characteristics of this particular piece of meat....should I go brisket method (smoke til 165ish IT, then foil) should I treat it like a roast and leave it medium rare? Should I make pepper stout? Anyway, planning this cook for Sunday, any advice is appreciated!!

Do you have any pics of it? Does it have fat marbled through it like a chuck or is it lean?

Here is a pic I found, I haven't opened the cryovac yet. It does have a .25" or so fat cap on both sides and it's hard to tell but appears to be marbled somewhat. Won't really know until I open it.

it looks like what we call a clod heart,it's a little hard to tell from the picture though.
