my new friend chuck

Finally found a decent butcher with chuck in stock. He cut me out a 9 lb boneless on tuesday but I had to fly out to NYC. Got in yesterday about 8:30 and fired up the wsm. Rubbed it with some S & P and then went about my day. foiled about 162 and pulled it off at 205. Waited a couple of hours then pulled .... this is certainly something I will cook again soon, what a wonderful flavor,

I'm with Larry on this one -- pulled chuck has a great flavor.

All this talk of Chuck got me to want to try one. The biggest I could find at the market is just 3.5LBs. As I understand it, a guy should Q it like a butt. Foil at 165 and pull at 200+?

I don't know about a butt (I don't foil them) but do it like you said which is how I do a brisket point.

I dont foil my butts, but this was my first try with a chuck so I took Larry's advice (I am sure Finney taught him) but I wouldnt change a thing. Plenty of bark and a nice texture and flavor. I did chop it a but after I pulled it. Not sure how it would stand up to a pro, but when the wife says its the best roast she's ever had thats all that matters....the smoke is justified
