    I was up before the sun and put this boneless chuck roast on the smoker.  One full smoker box filled with soaked apple wood.

    Smoked it until around 1:00pm and then let it rest for about 45 minutes.   During the third quarter as the Bears were losing again we enjoyed the tender juiciness sliced on some fresh rolls.

    I tried a new sauce for the sandwiches made by A & W that has root beer richness to it.

    I am so happy with the results this time everyone loved it, we finished it before the end of the game.

    Now the important part the q-view...




    Thanks for viewing,  I am so happy I found this forum and the all the great tips and instructions.

    [​IMG]  Good question...  Why as in????   

    Store bought, basically I am trying to learn this smoking and low and slow cooking in steps.  Once I get the feel for good results on the meat I will think about creating my own sauce.


    This Brand/Flavor, We have the advantage of  a Jewel grocery store by our house that has a big selection and the label caught my eye.  Plus the idea of a root beer enhanced sauce sounded good.  I would give this sauce a thumbs up in taste.  


    The using any sauce at all,  I do know about the big divide between those who like'em wet and them who like'em dry....  I do enjoy the sauce and will finish my ribs with the sauce at the end to add a glazing layer.  In this case sliced for sandwiches was the goal and I left it up to the family  to choose if they wanted a sauce and which one.  We have a bunch of brands started in the fridge.

    Having the electric Brinkman allows me focus on the meat and not have to add fire tending to the mix.  Which will be my next step, to learn to control the fire.  At some point sauce creation will become a priority.

    Congrats on the first success. One thing I noticed in the video is that you did not save the meat juices to pour over the sliced meat. Try that next time and you will be one really happy camper.
