Chuck Roast, Fatty, ABTs, & Morels = A good day

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Did a chuck roast some ABTs a fatty and a few morels We found yesterday All was excellent. The chuck was amazing, Took a little longer then I expected, The chuck plateued for almost 3 hours at 140 and made my total cook time 8 hours, so I didn't get to rest it as long as I wanted but it was still good. Does anybody know how to shorten plateau times?

The pics

Bottom line - there isn't a way to shorten the plateau time. It's the natural process of the meat fibers breaking down to create the tender/shreddable results that everyone loves. This is the time to crack open a beer (or drink of choice) and watch the TBS chug out the top of the smoker. biggrin.gif

By the way - your pics looked great!!! Nice looking grub, especially the roast!

I typically shorten my plateau times with captain morgan. Doesn't actually shorten the time, but takes my mind off the wait!

What did you do to prep the Chuck Roast? Did you marinate it or rub it?? Foil it??

Inquiring smokers want to know...
