3 Chuckies w/Qview

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
So I'm gearing up for the 4th of July! Plus I'm in the garage all day with my helpers making a cornhole set for the 4th.

I bought 3 good roasts at Meijer:

I rubbed 1 with the following Rub:
4 TBS Paprika
4 TBS Dark Brown Sugar
2 TBS Kosher Salt
2 TBS Coarse Black Pepper (CBP)
4 TSP Garlic Powder
4 TSP Onion Powder
2 TSP Ground Cumin
2 TSP Instant Coffee
2 TSP Cayenne Pepper

Mix all ingredients in an old coffee grinder and grind until fine

The 2nd roast was rubbed with Montreal Steak Seasoning and the 3rd with Kosher Salt and CBP

Here they are in the smoker (Drippings pan includes 2 cups of Apple Cider Vinegar and 24oz of Beef Broth):

And here's one of my helpers:

I'm off to build the cornhole set now with my helper. More pics as we get along throughout the day.

Lol I thought the same thing when I first moved to Indiana. Cornhole is an outdoor game where you throw a bean bag onto a box that has a hole in the middle. In illinois we called the game "bags" , here it is called cornhole.

Brad's right...it's a very Midwestern thing...specifically Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.

My buddy at work who is from LA laughs every time I say it. Then I hear dueling banjos and it all goes downhill from there.

It's like horseshoes but they're portable. Same rules basically.

Yeah, where Im from "cornhole" is something completely different!icon_eek.gif
I think it got its name from people using dried corn in the bags.

Good looking chuckies Mike!
see ya on the 4th!

Yeah the bags are 4"x4" and have dried field corn in them. Hence the cornhole...

Now when I used to think of cornhole, I thought of the movie Deliverance but that's just me.

Gettin' close

The chuckies are looking good and I'm about 75% done with one cornhole board.

The chuckies are foiled now and I'll take them out of the smoker at ~200F.

My other 2 helpers:

Just pulled the first chuckie out at 202. It's wrapped up in foil and an old towel and off to the cooler! the other 2 are coming along nicely!

Well everything came out right at 200/201F. Overall, I'm impressed with the rub I concocted. I'm still disappointed in the chuckies not pulling very well even at 200F. I'm going to re-calibrate my therms again, but they were checking out before the smoke.

Here's the chuckie with only S+P

Pretty good smoke ring on this one

And this one has the Montreal Steak Seasoning - kinda got carried away and forgot to take a picture...thanks to my lovely wife for taking all these while I was workin' on breaking the meat down

Damn taste testers suckered my wife again

Good smoke ring on the Montreal Steak Seasoning one

Here's the fatty with the new rub...great color, good smoke ring and great flavor all the way through...totally my favorite, but still disappointed I couldn't pull any of these very well

And finally everything chopped/semi-pulled:

The S+P and Montreal one are going to be used for sammies and the rubbed one is going into some of my chili tomorrow or Tuesday.

Thanks for lookin'!

P.s. The cornhole board project made some more progress, but I got tied up with the smoker. Anyone got a good way to cut a 6" diameter hole cleanly? The Dremel and I are not working so well together so the hole is jacked.

Nice looking chuckies. I did one today and took it to 205 for pulling, it pulled well. I go by the feel of the meat more than the temps.

In Chicago corn hole was x rated so I won't tell. All I can say is you didn't want to get corn holed. Nuff Said.

Back to the subject, the chucks look good.PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif
