I also find chucks very difficult to cook. I theory that part of the problem is the smaller size. Maybe some of it is which end it is cut from. Putting them in a pan with a lot of liquid certainly makes it easier, but isn't my typical method for any bbq. For a while I was cooking them to a little less then probe tender and pulling them out and slicing it more like brisket flat. That can work well too.

My method is close to Bluesman's. Last week I made two and they came out very good. I wrapped mine at 160 and foiled with beef broth seasoned with garlic powder and freshly cracked pepper. I have found the meat probe tender at around 205. Sometimes I pull at 190 and slice thin and then reheat in broth so there are slices that are almost falling apart but not quite. On another note I really like smoking the chuckies with pecan.

Good anwsers I see here.
I've done it only once and I've have seen other Dutch Brethren do it live.
I think you need some (more) liquid and Phoil to Phinish the product.
I maybe wrong but I think you can't pull a chucky easily like porkneck/shoulder aPhter you hit the right internal temp.

4.) Cover with foil and put back on the smoker, or in the oven at 250*275* until it is falling apart.
5.) Remove from cooker and shred to discard all of the fat
6.) Put back in cooker to reduce the juices by 1/2
7.) Mix it all up real good
8.) Eat

Try this it may get you closer to what you want.

I am doing this today. IT is at 145* right now and doing nicely... Thanks for this. Wifey and I can't wait for it to be done!!!

I'm attempting one as I type.......marinaded for 24 hrs , no rub....we'll see how it turns out. I have done Round Roasts in Smoker and pulled at 190 IT and rested for 1 hr and they were Tough so I put all the slices in glass casserole dish and added half a jar of Spicy Brown Mustard and about half a Carton of Beef broth and popped in Oven at 250* for 2 more hours and it was REALLY Good.

I think you gotta cook it proper and rest it proper - I'm guessing there are some folks who can nail a cook that way but at this point I ain't one of 'em.

IMO it wouldn't hurt for you to simplify your process - you have some great advice here in this thread.

I've done one chuck roast, so I won't give any advice at the risk of sounding like one of those "internet experts".
But Here's my thread. I had some stress and resulting questions as the cook took place. Hopefully, you and anybody else can learn from our combined noob-ness.
