Smoked Chuck Roast

Grilled Jawn Step By Step Smoked Chuck Roast

Smoked Chuck Roast is one of my favorite cooks. Learn how to Smoke Chuck Roast like a Roast – how it is meant to be done.

Smoke this like a brisket or that like a brisket is all well and good. You can definitely smoke Chuck Roast like a brisket, but you can also smoke it as it intended — like a Chuck Roast.

Coming from the Cow’s upper shoulder and lower neck, the Chuck Roast is a great cut of meat for stew, pot roasts, Texas Chili or grilled or broiled as a steak. But how about grabbing a nice slab of Chuck from your local butcher and throwing it on your Smoker for a couple of hours slow and low.

Brisket is King — sure. Beef Ribs are King — agreed. But, if you are looking for a delicious cut of meat with good marbling flavor don’t snooze on a Smoked Chuck Roast.
