A friend of mine had a steer butchered and told me he slipped a couple of pieces into my freezer. The labels say “chuck roll (eye)”. They are almost round, about 3 ½ - 4 inches across and roughly 16 inches long 8 – 10 pounds. Because of the way they are frozen and wrapped I cannot see what they look like so I went over to the butcher shop to ask about them. The butcher told me they were chuck eyes, very lean, and I would really like them. My nephew and his family will be coming up from Missouri in a couple of weeks to buy my mother’s car and I’d like to smoke one of the chuck eyes for their visit. I’ve done chuck clods and chuck roasts, but this one’s new for me. The way the package looks it reminds me of a full tenderloin. Any ideas on this one?
