After deciding to do a chuck roast everyone else also had the same thought, so I held off posting this so as not to inundate you all with too much of the same stuff.

So here is the chuckie with mustard and Jeff's Texas Rub ready to go on the smoker.

Here is the Mac and Cheese with turkey bacon bits on top ready for the smoker also.

And the chuckie all on it's own 5 hours into the cook. @225 with Lumber Jack competition pellets.

Added the Smoke Mac and Cheese at 6 and a half hours into the smoke.

After an hour and 45 minutes looks like the Mac and Cheese is ready to pull. Look at the little cheese bubbles.
