Default The chuckster

Trying out a ~3 or so pound chuck tomorrow (with a fatty also!).

I think i have a game plan:

Rub it down with something, unsure right now, but ill see whats in the cupboard.

Throw it on the UDS at 250 till we hit 165, then place it in a foil pan with worschereteehreerr sauce and beer maybe a cup or two?? finish it off at ~325 till its tender.

Any other advise? It seems chucks are hard to get down, especially small ones. And im trying to keep it plain, because ill be saucing it after the pull for sandwiches, So the stout method is out for me.

If you're going to sauce it, I would go with beef broth in the foil pan, if you have some.

Don't need to search. It is in the Q-talk Roadmap thread.

I almost did this same thing. 3lb chuck, 275F in the UDS until it hit 170. Used Stubbs Beef Marinade on chuck and used leftover marinade from bowl and a beer in pan. Brought UDS up to 325 and pulled it at 215, turned out great. Using it for gameday chili.

Go Ravens.

So, im thinking, i just peeked inside to get a temp on the fatty 145 same as the chuck coincidentally. anyways the chuck is still so moist there is grease and blood still sitting on the top, im thinking of not putting it in the foil and letting it roll on, maybe ill sauce it down in the pit itself. thoughts?

I'd let it roll some more and do a poke test as it climbs. Then you could finish it in a roasting pan with your beer and worchesherererererer sauce mixture in the smoker. Just foil the pan if you keep losing liquid.
