    Who can send me the right direction? I am doing a cook of 200lbs (uncooked) of pulled pork for my local Eagles Club. What I am trying to find is...is there a beef cut that is inexpensive and I can pull like boston butt? I don't mind having to remove extra fat when I pull it...in fact everybody loves my pulled pork and I haven't told them that with my rub and the bark on the fat they can't tell it's in there...not real healthy but tastes real good!! Around here the brisket is way too expensive and I'm not going to have enough time. I was looking at the Chuck Roll that was posted but I'm not sure what I can get that for... Any suggestions is appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    The chuck quarter or several chuck roasts would be your best bet. Cheap, a great fat content for taste. Also, my opinion, a combo of apple/cherry/mesquite spray in the last several hours with a apple juice mix of your choice. Lucky Eagles.

  4. Yep, chuck roasts are the way to go! Good fat marbling that helps with taste, and when it renders away... you're left with very pullable pieces of beef. I always rub mine and take to 140 on the smoker (no spraying necessary).... once it's there, splash with beer or other liquid and wrap in foil until you get to 200. Take it off and I always keep it wrapped and let it rest until the temp falls back down to 140 or so...... then you have some perfect beef for pullin'. Mix with bbq sauce or stuff into some enchilladas.... oh man is it good.

    Thanks for all your help...once again!! No better forum then the SMF!!
    Gonna see if I can find the Chuck roll or quarter to try it out. They didn't want to introduce it at this cook since they know everybody loves the pulled pork. I'm gonna try it to see if we want to do it for an OSU game this fall.
    Go Buckeyes!!! I know they choke on the big one!!!

    The cook is in Sept. I'm going to have some in the smoker and some serving all weekend!! Bands on Friday night and Saturday!!! My buddies band...The Mongrels...are playing on Fri. Good ole fashion classic rock!!! If you're in the area that is the weekend of the Heritage Festival here in Tiffin Oh.

Come up to the top of the Hill and visit the FOE say hi to the big bald guy that smells like smoked meat!

    I've done sveral chuck roasts .... think they were arm cuts. All have cooked up good, pulled easy and tasted great. Paid around $2.50 lb

    I cooked them using the same method as a butt and they came out fine.

    Just remember there are several types of Chucks. I know the underblade pulls well, but some don't.
