    Both the boys are out of the state working right now and couldn't get home for Mother's Day, so I knew a great day was up to me.  I had asked Mrs. Red a few days ago what she wanted me to do for her today:  Her favorite restaurant?  Wine and Dine her?  Prepare an extravagant meal at home?  Nope, none of the above.  She stated that she wanted to keep it simple:  she wanted me to smoke a chuck roast for sammies and whip up a batch of tater salad.

    So, she's in charge today (as if there's a day when she's not).  Chuckie it is!

    Here is today's victim.  It's almost 3 lbs.

    Last nights prep work:  coated him with some L&P's thick Worcestershire, then dusted it with Montreal Seasoning, wrapped and overnighted in the fridge.  I chose not to inject this one, as it was a pretty fat-marbled cut.

    8 a.m. this morning:  into the smoker @ 230* with an AMNTS mixed with hickory and apple pellets.  This photo was taken about 2 hours in when I inserted the Maverick meat probe.

    I foiled it with a splash of apple juice and a splash of Worcestershire,when it reached IT of 165*, then back into the smoker.  Total cook time to reach 205* IT was just about 6 1/2 hours.  Then wrapped and rested for a little over 2 hours in the warm oven.

    Thought this one turned out pretty...real nice smoke ring...

    Mrs. Red's simple Mother's Day plate...chuckie sammie and freshly made tater salad.

    I must be doing something right, she is requesting my smoked meat more often than ever, and she did brag a bit about the chuckie.

    Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there!

    Your prep, the L&P and Montreal is exactly like I do chuckies and a lot of beef! Love it! Keep it simple!

    Couldn't agree more Dave!  Allows the flavor of a good piece of beef to shine through.

    When a chuck roast is done right it is some real good eatin'. And yours sure looks right, Red. As I've said before, I'm a big fan of letting the meat be the star and that sure looks like your philosophy for that roast. Nice .

    Thanks for all the compliments, folks!

    ATS32, I smoked this on my new Rec Tec pellet smoker.  My first pellet pit and I'm really liking it.

    Your method is just about the same as mine!!

    You must have used an electric knife-----The only way I have found to "slice" a 205 degree Chucky>

    Nice Job!!!
