Greetings Smokers! I haven't posted anything in a long time but decided to jump in again. I smoked something today that was a first time for me and boy it turned out really good. 4.5 pound chuck roast. Really simple and easy 6 hr 45 minute smoke @ steady 250 degrees on the Bayou Classic stick burner. 4 hours in I placed the roast in a pan and added some beef broth and covered with foil to braise for a while. The last hour or so I had removed the foil and let it bark back up. The roast was so tender it was falling apart when I tried to plate it. Was happy with the smoke ring and the bark. Plenty of chopped beef sandwiches in the near
future. I will definitely do this smoke again soon. Here is a few photos.
