    Thought I would try my hand at faux burnt ends with a 3.7 lb chuck roast. Smoked it at 170 degree for an hour and then upped it to 240 degrees. Chuck roast must have had a lot of connective tissue or marbling because after 8 hours it was only at 175 degree IT. So I took it in the house in our convection oven to take it to 190 degrees IT. Then I cubed it, dumped some BBQ sauce and more rub on it and stuck it under the broiler for a few minutes.

    Tasted great and the wife really enjoyed. I think next time I might cut it in cubes first. That should quicken things.

    Looks good.

    I wouldn't cube the meat first. You'll end up with some pretty dry meat. Burnt ends just take time. You can up the pit temp to 285-300 if you want to speed up the process during the initial smoke.

    So I am going to ask a stupid question here....as this is something I absolutely want to try.......when I see things like this on the site, does it make a difference if I have a Pellet Grill--GMG-DB or an actual smoker to how I cook it?   Would I follow the same guidelines on this recipe in this thread, or doe sit make  a difference if it is what I have vs. and actual smoker?

    Looks incredibly tastey by the way.....sooooooo hungry now!

    I don't think it matters how you smoke it, tiki (I admit I don't know what a GMG-DB is). Burnt ends are about the sauce & rub. Goldmine did his in the oven broiler and they came out great.....

    I would think there is some difference. Though I am not a smoking expert. I did these burnt ends in a GMG DB(Green Mountain Grill - Daniel Boone) and finished the last few minutes under the broiler. The pellet smoker/grill has been called a "convection" smoker/grill by some. That convection would be different affect than other types of smokers. I too am curious how these burnt ends would come out in a electric smoker that does not have the convection mechanism. If I could get the pellets to stay lit in my electric smoker, maybe I will try someday.
