Default 60 lbs. of chuck and a packer - Failed Pron fix (I hope)

Went home for a little vacation and memorial service for my grandfather. Was asked if I could smoke some meat for it. My family had never really had anything smoked but my dad found a homemade smoker at an oil field camp. Made from 3/4 inch plate metal clear around it was a little heavy.


Took a little bit to get it going. Were burning oak splits. Luckily we had some dead oaks just up from the house. Set up a fan to create our own makeshift, high volume guru.



After awhile we finally got it dialed in. Took a lot to get the whole thing up to heat but started rolling TBS and holding right around 246.



Threw on three 20lb. Chuck Roasts for the service on Sunday and a packer for us that night.







Started basting the chuck every 1/2 hour with a table sauce, beef base, worchestshire mixture.


Finally pulled the beef about 2 a.m. after a good 13 hours. Internal temp was 203. Just fell apart. One of the best things I've ever smoked.




Everybody loved it. Served it on some homemade buns with a ton of different sides. Hard to beat a week of BBQ, family, and great views.

Wow! very cool-
Cool looking smoker, looks like the brisket was very moist with good smoke, and the pulled chuckie-yummmO!
Beautiful views, too bad you had to come together under such circumstances.
Sorry for your loss.
