    Feet are up, waiting for the final results. It's 10* here so I'm inside staying warm.

    Spring like temperatures here in Northern Arkansas. Not typical for February.
    Well, still deciding how to finish this smoke: pulled, sliced or cubed. I’m going to do a family vote.
    So far kettle temp is holding steady at 250-260 for over 2 hours now. IT is 102. Still a ways to go.

    I'll be waiting [somewhat] patiently for the Q-view!

    What's your plan for temperature and method? Slicing or pulling?

    The vote is in:
    Dad: Poor mans burnt ends
    Mom: pulled
    Daughter: pulled
    Son: pulled
    Chris: pulled

    Getting ready to pan it and foil it with zesty Italian dressing mix and some beef broth.

    Man, am I disappointed in DAD on this one. At least your family has taste. :emoji_sunglasses:

First time doing a chuck roast. I have plenty of left overs. And the kids loved it. Thanks for watching.
