Can't go wrong with a smoked chuck . Looks good .
I just bought a whole chuck pectoral at GFS 2 days ago . $5.50 a pound . Should be a couple chuck eyes , a petite tender maybe a flat iron steak . Couple roast , then the rest I'll grind .
I stick it in my beer helmet and drink it while I am cooking.
Makes a good bloody bull . Bloody Mary with beef stock .

That looks awesome Steve! Gonna make some dang good sandwiches, makes my mouth water just thinking about it. Beef here is expensive also, but a local store has briskets on sale for 2.99 lb I finally snagged one yesterday.

That Chuck looks wonderful Steve, I could just about live on FD sannys, Like! I'll be off to Sam's Club later this morning to maintain supplies, we've kept everything stocked to the max the last few months waiting for another shutdown. Chicken and pork have stayed roughly the same, beef might be slightly higher overall. I have cards to the three large grocery stores here in Gilbert and keep my eye on the weekly sales, something can always be found at a decent price. RAY
Thanks Ray. I usually just get deli sliced roast beef to make it. I think that is coming to a end.

Thanks Bear! I'm not buying any either because of the prices. I have a few left for now.

Thank you Ryan! I'm watching the brisket prices too. But, I have zero room for one at the moment thanks to Lowes.

Thanks Robert! I guess I just got lucky. That, and researching how to do this without screwing it up too much!

Steve, can’t tell you how jealous I am of (what appears to be) beef on weck! Virtually impossible to find down here. Made it a couple times when we lived where there was a bakery run by Buffalo refugees, gone now. :emoji_disappointed:
Going to have to try to modify the hamburger buns recipes been seeing on here.

That's what it is. Though on steroids. The smoked chuck takes it to a whole new dimension. I make beef on a weck often. They are great sandwiches.

Used to be my favorite (lived in western NY) ... heck, still my favorite, just can’t find here.
If I can find or make kimmelweck, I will be doing a chucky with appropriate seasoning in the SV hot tub :emoji_yum:

I'm guessing it is the rolls you can't find. PM me your address. Next time I see a pack I'll seal um up and send them your way.
