Let me start by saying I sucky at chuckie. (give me a break,I'm a carolina boy) That is what inspired this idea. The last chuckie I did was not quite tender but tasty, so I figure why not start it on the smoker let it take on some smoke and transfer to the crock pot. So I've got the meat on the ECB right now and I've got the crock pot goin with carrots, celery, beef stock and onion. I'm also going to make some mashed taters and gravy. I'll share the final pics when shes done.

gotta have my beers

On the ECB with a few apple chunks



Chuckie's bath warming up



Plated



This picture doesnt do the dinner justice but I was half in the bag by dinner time. I made redwine gravy with mushrooms. I also made mashed taters from some nice yukon golds.

That'll make it nice & tender & tasty, but you're gonna soon have to try the ALL smoker way again.

You can do it!

We'll help,

Thanks Bear. We are having guests tonight so I really didn't want to mess up again. I would hate for the money shot on this thread to be an open Papa John's box! I am definitely gonna get back up on the horse though. Thanks for the support buddy.

I bet it turns out good, But I agree you have to try again all the way in the smoker.  I did one last weekend and it was great. Smoked @225-250 to 160 then foiled to 190.  Sliced it after a rest in cooler and it was great.  I know you can do it too

That is going to be de-lic-ious, hey there's no shame in using the crock pot, all that matters is your guests enjoy their meal.

Next time, you might try putting the chuck in a foil pan on the smoker, that's how I do all of mine now, I still have a smoke ring and smoke flavor and I save all of the juices from the chuck to make au jus or gravy, you might also want to consider cutting a sample at 165°, that's when I pull mine when cooking for slicing and see if you like it, if not you can always leave it on longer.

Enjoy,

Gene

Thanks brotha man! I think I can do it too. My original failure I believe had more to do with the roast's minimal marbling. If I were cooking for just Amelia and I, I would have been happy to go all the way in the smoker.

At first thought I thought that you were smoking a beer but as I continued I see you were smoking the chuckie. Great job.

Smoked beer might be pretty darn good Mark.

I checked out those threads and that is some great looking food Scar. If Rob doesn't mind send me that rub recipe. Thanks buddy.

 
Hey Steve it is looking good but try this one next time and you can have chuckie 3 ways

Just substitute your favorite rub for the one I used - if you need some help PM me

Thats where the cigarette names come from Bear, they are made here. I'm a Camel man myself.

That's funny, Two "smokers" from a place called "Winston Salem".
 
 
LOL---I knew that.

I meant that you are both meat smokers from a place with two cigarette smoking names.

Kinda like two Bears standing next to a sign saying, "You are now entering Bear Creek Township".

Oh well, I thought it was a little funny.

twas funny, I just wasn't sure if you knew about the town! Everyone from Winston has had people ask about the correlation of the names of the cigarettes and the town and I find that most people don't know thats where the names come from. This town was built on the back of RJR. I went to Reynolds High School. I should have figured a wise bear would know.

 It tasted like liquid smoked ham.
