Now ya went and done it hilbilly. Stopped in to see my butcher today(and drop off a pulled pork butt sampler). I told him I was gonna hafta smoke me a chuck roast this sat while the wolverine are beating on the buckeyes
! He walked me over to the cases of Chuck and said which one do ya want. "whoa", I said. "i am NOT smokin that whole chunk of carcass there". He just laughed and asked me how big of a chunk I wanted to try. Come to find out that Chuck steaks are on sale this week for about $ 2.69 a lb. I told him to keep an eye out for some good looking stuff about 4-5 lbs. He said he had to cut up at least 15 or more of them great big pieces into chuck steaks and chuck eyes( my favorite steak to grill for very little money), and would keep the best lookin chunk out for me to get on friday.
I can't wait, I guess them little pulled pork samplers are starting to pay off. He said he would only charge me $2.49 a lb.
My question is this, is a 5lber gonna be too big, should I ask him for a 3-1/2 or 4 instead?
