    hello, ive got about 8 pounds of chuck roast, and I was thinking I would smoke it, the fat content seems like I should treat them like a butt.

    do you think jeffs rub would be good on these?

    or do you have any good rub recipes for beef.

    I figured I would take it to 200 and pull it, does this sound good?

    You can definitely treat it like a butt and pull it. Some around here say they can be a bit moody about pulling, but I've always run mine right up to 200* and they pull pretty easy. I also foil them around 165ish. As to rub, I think Jeff's Rub would be good on there, or any other rub you want should be ok.

    EDIT: Scratch that, I started taking chucks to 210 to 215* in foil and they fell apart.

    I 2nd pack on the chuck. I've done a couple of chucks just like a pork but and they have turned out just fine. Pulled real easy and tasted good.

    Is 2nd pack just a double wrap on the foil?

    Chucks are awesome. I treat em like pork butts, I use a different rub and injection, but the heat and timeline/temps are almost the same. It really helps if ya can rest em for an hour, two is better(leave em in the foil and in a cooler)[​IMG]
