First Chuckies w/ Qview

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
OK... so after watching Dude turn out all those amazing looking chuckies I had to give it a try. Safeway had a buy-on-get-one (BOGO) on chuck roasts, so picked up two, one was 2.87 lbs. other was 3.23 lbs.

I picked up a spice rub from Winco that is roasted garlic, sea salt, dried red bell pepper, and crushed hot red pepper flakes.

This one is my old standby - Stubbs BBQ rub, it is a no salt rub, but very flavorfull, and I did add some kosher salt to it as well.

After rubs were on I hit them both with a tiny bit of EVOO to get the magic going. Here is a shot of the ingrediants:

Got them on the Char-griller, ran at 225-250° for 3 hours, adding 2-3 chunks of hickory to the fire box every 45-60 minutes. Was gonna do some chicken leg quarters to fill up the extra space, but never got round to them icon_rolleyes.gif:

I foiled them at 165(ish)... one was up to 175... lol. I put a very small splash of Pyramid Heferweisen in each foil - happened to be the beer I was drinking at that time. biggrin.gif

Let them cook for another 2 1/2 hrs. Pulled when internal temp hit 205 on one and 210 on the other. Rested for 1 1/2 hrs. in a cooler, and here is the roasted garlic rub one (forgot to take a picture of the other):

... and garlic one pulled:

... and Stubb's rub one pulled (rememberd this picture.. lol):

Both very tasty and moist! Thanks to all the posts that showed how to do a good chucky!

LOL.. at practice in the rain... no kidding, got a downpour today!

Discovered Stubb's a few years back, I really like it on poultry and pork. If you like sweeter flavors just mix it with some brown sugar, salt, and cracked black pepper - I use that mix on my ribs... really tasty.

Nice job. I 've gotta try these this week.

Was there much difference in taste between the two?

They look mighty tasty, love those BOGO deals when they are good.
I have a shaker of Stubb's rub, I enjoy his line of charcoal but was a bit disappointed with their rub and BBQ sauces.

Nice looking chuckies, they sure do look tasty.

Yeah I find adding a little salt to the rub makes a huge differance. But I do like the fact that there is flavors like fennel seed in it - when I am in a rush I can either use it straight or doctor it up a tad. And I agree... not a fan of the BBQ sauces.

Dang JIR! Those look awesome! I love pulled chuckie. I'm humbled that you gave me a mention. That was very kind of you.
