Default temperature

i know a butt can cook at 275 and up, but what about a chuck roast; I am doing one of each and wonder it th roast can take the heat like a butt due to its fat content

A chuck roast can definitely handle 275...it's not that extreme of a temp.. Still, unless you were pressed for time, I'd think you would be pleased with dropping your temps down a bit..

If you can keep the temp in the 275-300 degree range, you will be happy with the results. Just watch the internal temp, shoot for 195 or so for pullable meat, and remember that the real test of done-ness is when a probe goes in with no, or very little resistance.
