Quick question about chuck roasts for the pros

Discussion in 'Beef' started by whitepony99, Oct 18, 2010.

  1. Alright guys learned a ton from you guys so far but have a question. Whats the biggest chuck roast you would dare smoke? My butcher can cut me a shoulder blade chuck roast to size and I was wondering what is some of the biggest you guys have done with success.

    Thanks in advance

    biggest one I have done is about 5 # but Im sure you could do a larger one

    it would just take a little longer is all

    How big are we talking? People do huge briskets so I don't see any reason you can't do a big chuckie say 10-12 lbs or more if you can get one that big???????

    I would say any size that you had the time to smoke. Like rbranstener said, people are doing large briskets all the time.
  5. I was thinking a 8 or 9 pounder and hopefully it wouldn't take over 13 hours but I don't know. I really want the bone in it for the flavor of it I think it would be great
