    Hey all, already been to roll call. So I figured I'd post this one up quick. Did up a 5lb chuckie today that came out great. It was on for about 11 hours at 225-230 and was soooo worth it. Nothing special on the rub, just salt/pepper and a sprinkle of montreal steak. Spritzed w/apple juice throughout and fully basted also at 160 when wrapped in foil for the duration (took it up to around 195-200, which was cool cause some pulled and some needed slicing). For some reason, when it comes to certain cuts of beef, I feel less is more sometimes when it comes to seasoning/rubs. I'd love some feedback on that thought. One thing I did notice, was that the bark turned out pretty exceptional for a chuckie [​IMG]. Nothing exciting as far as sides with this one, just taters and some veggies. Next time I'll have more pics, I'm still new here, but here goes ...

    Thx - Dave

    Thx everyone. Ever try to move a 'hot' smoker when it starts raining? That experience made permanent room for them in the garage, it actually rained for the last few hours tonight, no probs here ... Lol!

    Looks great and I agree sometimes less spices added the better

    It does not matter in my book as long as the cook & those partaking of the meal are happy. Good looking smoke!! [​IMG]
