    Can I confess I was getting a wee bit fed up with pulled pork.

    Saw a lovely looking 2kg piece of chuck in Turner and George on Saturday and impulse bought. 

    On the Weber OTP this morning around 6am. Rubbed with Pitt Cue beef rub

    10 hours at 225-230F. Started off with some mesquite chips for a bit of intense smoke followed by some applewood chunks. 2x2 snake with aussie heat beats. Temp held really well. Foiled after 4 hours with a splash of apple juice. Took it to 203F, then into a cool box for a few hours waiting for the folks to arrive. Pulled into big, moist, meaty chunks.

    Well I'll do that again. Maybe next time just salt and pepper no mesquite.

    Never uploaded photos before and not exactly David Bailey, but you get the general idea.

    That chuck looks great to me!  Hope you all had a fine meal out of it.  Keep Smokin!

    Mesquite also burns hot and is great for steaks.  I like it but most don't so I never use it for smoke.
