I treat them like Brisket - same rub - and smoke till probe tender usually 4 - 4.5 hrs at 300* (3.5 lbs each) pan no wrapping then rest them 1/2-1 hr.

I also treat them like a brisket and cook at 260-270, foiling when the bark is the color that I like and cook until probe tender, usually about 75 minutes per pound. then I rest them in a cooler for at least two hours.

There is also a great recipe that involves braising the beef after smoking it for a while...

I did my first one last weekend.
This is how it happened:

Got a 3.5 lb Chuck roast from Wally World and Thought I would try it.
Found a few recipes so I decided to do it at 330 or so until 160 internal then put in a pan with 1/2 cup of wine, onions, bell peppers and carrots. From all I read it would take about 2 hours to get to 160 IT.

Put it on at 11:00 am and by noon it was at 160 IT. Wow! Lunch isn't until 2:00, so I shut the vents on the Big Joe down, bottom completely, top at 1/8th inch. By the time I took the Chuckie off, panned it and got it back on the Joe was at 270 and the IT dropped to 152 IT. Back on with the grill at 295 and the meat at 152.

12:30 Pm now and the Joe is stable at 304 and the internal is at 158 IT. Should be on target for around 2:00 pm now. I plan on taking it off at 200 IT or so to be able to slice thick slabs.

210 and took it off to probe. Slides in easy, but not like butter, so I put it back on for a few more minutes. Might go to 215 or so.

Final result:

I agree - treat it like a brisket. This last weekend, I then took it an extra step for the first time and put it in a dutch oven with a bottle of Chianti, some spices, some chicken stock, along with a mess of brussels sprouts, garlic cloves, mushrooms, and baby carrots.


This went into the oven at 350 until the vegetables were soft. I substituted red palm oil for the usual butter (as I can't have dairy protein). It turned out really well.


Too bad there wasn't a throw-down on that this shot could have qualified for.
