Bold Chuck

Well, I pulled a small chuck outa the freezer yesterday. Had a little concern about how tender it might be when it finally thawed. It just had that feel. Covered it in Wolfe Bold and put it on. Cooked it like I always do, even let it go slightly longer since it just didnt "feel" right when I pulled the temp probe. Finally wrapped it up tight and let it rest for about an hour and a half. I could barely get a fork in it. It was the toughest piece of meat I have had in years. I sliced off a bit to check the flavor. My daughter and I both loved the flavor the bold gave it..but I dont think the market will be there for Bold Chuck chewing gum. I have to go pick up another chuck so we can actually enjoy it this time. Great flavors Larry, thanks for the sample. I'll use some more this weekend. but this one...well it was just a waste of good rub and a few pounds of lump.

It looked great and had a wonderful flavor. But someone chased that poor thing around the ridge too many times. I dont think a good ole Irish boil would've made it tender.

That is indeed a shame Curtis.

That chuck is a stubborn piece of meat!
I'd do the crock pot thing.

I'd try the crock pot also! Might work out fine in a crock of chili!

I totally thrashed a brisket but it made great chili. Chili rescues many things.
