First Chuckies

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Found some manager specials at Kroger so I thought would try some Chuck Roast. Quick marinade in Moore's with Butt Rub and Tony's and on to the smoker. Also giving me a chance to try out my Maverick ET-73. Very nice so far except for the length of the probe wires. Can't get the unit very far from the smoker - afraid it's going to melt. icon_neutral.gif

Popped them in the smoker around 6:00 last night. Figured on around 1.5 hrs per pound (4 lb x 1.5 = 6 hrs or midnight). Smoked around 225 using hickory for first 2 hours - too much white smoke (have trouble with the hickory, don't know why) added mesquite and got the thin blue. Sprayed chucks about once an hour for the first 4 hours with a mix of water and Worcestershire. Went to store and got some beef broth and added to the spray mix and continued the once and hour spray until around 1 am. (fell asleep). Woke up at 3:30 it was coming a flood and smoker was down to 170. Meat is at 150. Decide I have too much to do (have to get fruit and dip ready for all day volleyball tournamet - leaving at 7:30) to keep poking along and put chuckies in pan with rest of spray and cover with foil. Back in the smoker, sometime around 4:30, and crank the heat to 315. Take them up around 7:00 at 210 and this is what I got

Out of time, decide to go ahead and shred (they were falling apart anyway) and ended up with this

Daughter, who doesn't like crock-pot roast, tried it and thought it was great. I can say it was the best one I've ever had - no brag just the only one I've ever had biggrin.gif Oh yeah, the Maverick was great made the experience much more enjoyable.

Bad News, I had planned on making some enchiladas out of the roast BUT it's all gone. Sammies (for me breakfast, lunch and supper) and just plain pick snacking. Looks like I know what my next smoke will be - chucks Thur night for ENCHILADAS.

Suggestions for improvements?
