    Looking for some general info here. I purchased two chuckies, one is 2.8 lbs and the other is 2.6 lbs. I am marinating overnight in Yoshidas.

    Based on the weight of the two chuckies, both bone in, can i get some rough estimates on how long you think it will take at 225 - 240 to get them to around 200 degrees. Figured i'd bring them to 165 then foil.

    I have to leave in the middle of the day tomorrow but am leaving the wife at home to tend to the smoker(her 1st time) and just trying to minimize the time she needs to keep an eye on things if i can.

    Thanks for your input!

    About 4 to 5 hours depending on the meat temp going in to the smoker.

    I'd say count on 6 hours - if they get done before that then you are good. Chuckies can have a wicked stall that you just have to wait out if you want pulled beef.
