My first Chuckie Burnt Ends

    There were some decently marbled chuck roasts at our meat locker so I thought I would give chuckie burnt ends a try for the first time.

    I seasoned them with SPG and Maggi Seasoning (sort of like a strong soy sauce). Smoke was AMPS hickory. Probably averaged 240F smoker temp. The chuck roasts hit 195 in about 8 hours. Cut them into chunks. Sauced half and left the other half naked. Turned up the smoker to 275F. They were in there for another hour.

    Both the naked and the sauced burnt ends were very good but the sauced burnt ends were the better of the two. Simply put - the sauced burnt ends ran out and the naked burnt ends were the ones that were left over....sauced wins.

    A few of the chuckie burnt ends were a touch on the dry side whether sauced or naked - like you can get with chuck roasts. The next time I do this I will call ahead to Sams Club and have the butcher set a point or two aside for me.

    I like that you went with experimentation. It really is the only way to figure what you and yours like best, which is then what creates anticipation everytime you crank up the smoker, and memories long after the food has been digested. BBQ is an event that brings people together. To me, that is the end goal of BBQ. The methods and recipes are just the fun process to getting there.

    Good job! Like for sure!
