A couple more questions
I am smoking a chuck right now and am using a thermo to know when to foil and when it's done, but I have a question. What is the average time it takes to smoke a chuck? Is it about the same as a brisket @ 1.5hrs/lb?
I have the smoker going at approx 225, and am going to foil @ an IT of 170. Then bring it to 205 before doing the towel wrap & cooler method for an hour. I plan on pulling it this time around.
I am just trying to guesstimate when to get the other fixin's ready and since this is my first time, I haven't a clue on the timeline.
Also, what kind of sauce do you like with the chuckies? Sweet, vinigar based, etc.?
