Default first time chuckie not pulling

Tried a chuckie on the wsm, followed what I thought was conventional wisdom, smoke at 225-230 to internal temp of 160, then covered and braised it. I got the internal temp up to 195, but it doesn't feel like it is getting loose at all. It's a small roast, just under 3 pounds, and maybe 2 inches thick. Could that be my downfall?

Still needs a little more time on it. 205-210 is what I have found to turn Chuck Roasts Pullable

Just keep cooking it until you stick a fork in and twist without resistance. My last one loosened up at 208 degrees.

You can cook it longer to pull, but I've done sliced as well and it's pretty dang good - in fact, I'm not sure which one I like better.

As everyone else said, give it more time. You can check it at 195 or so... but if it is not ready, it is simply not ready.
