First time smoking a chucky on my MES40 (or ever). This is an Angus chuck roast that was over priced, but this store is closer to my house so I said "what the heck". Was gonna go just salt and pepper but last minute added some garlic and onion powder. Starting weight about 2.6 lbs. Hoping for some tender pulled beef.

You're going to love it. Did one last weekend. Right on with your rub. Take it to 205 and wrap in foil for 45 minutes and you'll have some nice sammies!

I really like pulled chuck. My best smoke ever was a big roast with the neighbors this past 4th of July. 4lbs+ and it was like jello when I took it off.

Right before I wrapped it




After resting an hour

It got very black as most things do in my smoker. Maybe I should start wrapping?

I always wrap things that take a long time, like Chucks, Butts, Briskets, etc.
I like Bark, but I don't particularly care for a real Thick, Hard, Black Bark.

Yeah the barks a little to heavy for me also, but I'm a betting the meat still tastes real good.

Point for sure

I was surprised to see it that black with no sugar in the rub especially. How was the outer most texture?

Turned out pretty good, maybe a tad dry for my taste but over all a success. The bark was salty and peppery which was a delicious taste maybe a little to thick though. After it was chopped up it made an excellent sammich. With slaw and a side of beans it was a great dinner.
