    I thought I would take a chuck roast and mix in a little smokie okie method.
    I had to add some fat to the fire to get it to flame though. I didn't sear it as much as you would a brisket.

    first I started out with some of Jeff's rub, injected it with some Italian dressing and seared it.(sprinkled some rub in the dressing)

    Smoked with pecan for two hours and then put it in a pan till it hit temp.
    I let it rest for an hour, sliced it up and put it back in the juices.

    Then I mixed the juices with some Au jus and voilÃ*!

    French dips!

    Looks pretty darn tasty! Although I won't be smoking I will probably be making some french dips as well using the crockpot.
    Might do black beans and sausage. Not sure yet. Both good for a cold day. I think we have a high of 74 that day.[​IMG]

    that does look great. Take that puppy up to 200 internal next time and pull it, then do the au jus. Bet that would be amazing. Gonna have to give that a try. [​IMG]

    I've been doing my beef roasts using SmokyOkie's brisket method and just won't do them any other way. I like your idea of injecting the beef first... haven't tried that yet.

    Man, that Au Jus added to the meat juice is AWESOME!!

    A french dip is a thin sliced beef hogie sandwich (usally with oinions and cheese) that is dipped in broth, traditional the blood is reserved and boiled making an Au jus
