Smoked Chuckies and pot roast

Yesterday I got a wild hair and decided to try my hand at smoking 2 chuck roasts.  Together the weight was just a bit over 7 pounds.  Cranked up the Smoke vault and prepped the chucks.  I used Lawrey's, Fresh ground pepper and a little bit of Old Bay Seasoning.


Here they are waiting to go into the smoker.


This was about 2.5 hours in and they smell like good steaks with a splash of hickory.



I really only wanted these to get some good smokey flavor and one is going to be sliced.  The first/larger one is going in a pan with Beef Broth, Carrots, Onion, and taters with a bit more salt and pepper....for an oven roast.


Ready for the oven...going to put in there for a few hours at 350*.  They had 4 hours in the smoke vault.


Close up of the yummies.


I have to work today..so this is going to be dinner for the next few nights.


Sorry about the blurry....it was close to Midnight.  Tired Puppy!

The chuck got a nice smoke ring and tasted great.

Thanks for looking!

I am hoping tonight when I re-heat it....will be tender.  The piece I cut off...was like steak.  Had a good smoke ring too!

Smoker was running between 250-260*....had a bunch of wind yesterday afternoon.  The IT...(checked with my therma-pen) was 159*....they had stalled a bit and I took them out.

make sure theres enough liquid in there and it should be nice and tender when its reheated....i often do the same thing you do with chuckies..i let em smoked for at least 4-5 hrs also and them move the meat over to the crock with veggies and some stock...when i come home from work dinners ready. lol. good thing i got the wife at home to watch it while im away. :)

Wow, those look so good. My missus isn't big on chuck roast. Maybe doing one of these will convert her. Thanks for posting, Kat.

I may get some more for the freezer too if Lynn likes this way.  The little slice tasted like a good steak to me.  Lynn went back yesterday...so he only had one day of Furlough....but they may get sent home again too.

The pot roast was sooooo good last nite.  Lynn complained (and he always does) about the smoke smell....but not the tenderness.  (Thinking he doesn't like Hickory)

I loved it and the smell.  That is the best part to me!

Here is my plate from last nite...and trust me I ate all of it!


Sucks for Lynn....it's dinner again tonight.  Oh Wait!  There is bologna in the fridge too!  LOL!

Thanks for the advice on them too. Taking some for lunch today too.  Mine were boneless....and it doesn't matter for me.  

$2.99 per pound was cheap for here lately.
