    Decided to do a chuck roast today. Never done one before so I fiqure to treat kinda like a brisket.

    Pic one is of the set up. Just put the roast on. Will show another pic in 2 hrs at the flip. Exciting isn't it.....[​IMG]



    Not using the BDS due to the small smoke (3.5 roast). Good view of the TBS. One chunk of hickory.

    Chuck's are a favorite of mine. I will be doing one tomorrow. I have also had success taking them to a higher internal temp and pulling them for sammies. Either way, very good eats! [​IMG]

    I agree with WVSmokeMan, a higher temp (190-200) will allow you to pull very easily if that is your goal. I've made Dutch's Smoked Beef Enchiladas with pulled chuck roast. (The recipe can be found as a sticky in the beef forum)

    It depends where your pics are hosted. Check out this thread where several folks helped Walking Dude get his pic posts figured out. I hope it helps.

    Two hrs into the smoke. Temp at 140* and just flipped. Now, to foil or not? Any suggestions?

    If you're going to 195, I would foil at 170!

    Hope this helps.

    That's just it. I always foil my butts and briskets. Thinking of trying this one with no foil. How will it turnout not being foiled?

    Something that makes you go HHUUUUMMMMMM.....

    Chuck roast or arm roast just the same, from your pic i cook these all the time in my smoker, i pull them at 150 deg Med well and there fantistic, angis beef is more tender then the iowa beef but both have the same flavor and both are good.
