    This turned out to be my best Chuckie yet, so I figured I'd do some "Splainin'"
    Got a 3 pound, 6 ounce Chuck Roast.
    Coated it with "Thick" Wooshy Sauce, then rubbed it good with McCormicks BBQ Rub (wife doesn't like it too spicy).

    Wrapped it in plastic wrap & into the fridge over night.

    6:45 AM---Preheat MES 30 to 240˚.
    8:30 AM---Put meat in smoker, Fill A-MAZE-N-SMOKER with Apple Dust, lit on both ends and put it in smoker.
    12:30 PM---Sterilize Meat probe with alcohol wipe and insert probe in meat & other probe in smoker. (Meat at 152˚ at 4 hours)
    2:25 PM---Chuckie at 165˚ internal---Double wrap in aluminum foil, add mixture of 2 oz of Wooshy & 4 oz of Apple juice, and put back in smoker.
    3:45 PM---Chuckie at 205˚ internal---Cut temp setting back to 100˚, but leave Chuckie in smoker, instead of putting in cooler.
    4:50 PM---Kill power to smoker, remove Chuckie from smoker (had dropped back to190˚ internal temp).
    Take pictures, pull Chuckie apart, add wife's taters, and eat.

    Note: This was done with a small 6" X 6" Amazing Smoker, so when I say I lit both ends, that was to get about as much smoke as when I light one end of my 5 X 8 AMNPS.

    Stopped smoking when foiled, after 6 hours.
    Went from 165˚ to 205˚ in only 75 minutes, due to foiling.
    This was my first Chuckie that did not stall.

    Everything great!

    Still have some for sammies next day & enough for 2 sammies tonight.

    Looking good Bear. Nice tutorial. I  choose another flavor as I can not stand the taste of Whooshy sauce but this is pretty much how I do mine too. Last one was with some Mexican seasonings. There is nothing like a chuckie taste wise -

    Thank you all for the real nice comments. That's the bonus I get, along with the good food.

    I hope my posts make it easier for some.


    No sammies for the stink bugs.

    I'm trying to starve them out![​IMG]

    Won't be long they'll turn into Stinkcycles here in good ole PA.

    Two of my favorite things about PA in the Winter--No snakes & No bugs![​IMG]

    That's funny you should say that:

    My son lives about 200 yards away, down the driveway, through the woods. He pulled in my driveway, when I was on the front porch checking the smoker. He got out of his truck laughing. He said he was working on his deck, and he smelled smoke. He said he thought somebody was burning something. Then he thought, "Damn that smells really good". Then he thought, "The old man must be smoking something again!" Dropped his screw-gun, and up to my house he comes!

    I gave him & his wife some. He always gives me a good portion of his Pulled Pork.

    Bear, nice job on the beef.  I need to do a Chucky.  Thanks for the post, that just boosted beef sales, in which I have stock in.  (the pantry)

    Nicely done Bear!  The one chuck roast I have tried didn't turn out so well and I'm not sure where I went wrong but this post will surely help me "get back on that horse" and give it another try!

    Thanks Rob,

    The only thing I didn't like about the old stuff was "Too thin"---This stuff is perfect!


    Thanks Nick
    Thanks Mac,
    This was the best & easiest Chuckie I have done.

    That looks so good, I've got to try a chuckie soon!  And like Squirrel, I'm gonna bookmark your great Qview for directions and inspiration!  [​IMG]

    That's a smart boy you got there, he knows when to come check on what the old man's up to! LOL [​IMG]

    Curse you Bear (but in a manly sort of way[​IMG]).  SWMBO was looking over my shoulder as I was viewing your QView and said "Now that looks good!!".  So, now I have a chuckie thawing, for tomorrow.  I'm thinking that a certain Red Bell Pepper Rub might just be the ticket.  I'll give a review of that combo but almost anything goes well with Beef.  Well, off to the store to get some kaiser rolls.
