    Wow...this is truly meat candy!  I can't believe how great this is.  Rubbed with Paul Prudhomme's Meat Magic.  Put 3.5# chuck roast in at 11 p.m. for an overnight smoke.  By noon it was at 185 and ready to be taken out for a rest, then cubed and sauced and back in for a couple hours.

    The family absolutely loved it.  I think this is one of my all time favorite MES meals ever.

    Thank you for sharing! I'll be trying this! My brother-n-outlaw takes us to a place that has something like this that they call "man candy" they won't share recipe though so I'll see if this does it! Great Q view!
    • PaRRot-HeaD  - How much smoke was the roast exposed to? Since you put it in at 11pm I assume you didn't tend to the smoker until the morning. Looks great!

    Smoked the whole time using the AMNPS.  It was still going when I got up in the morning but had burned out not too long after that.  I used chips for the rest of the smoke because

    I didn't want to light another tray at that point.

    Those look great and my family always devours burnt ends when I make brisket so I am definitely going to have to try this.  I even have a chuckie just that size in the fridge!

    Dang, that looks like fine dining to me.

    Like b-one I've tried them a couple of times, they were

    OK but not great.

    They look so good, I will keep trying until it comes out right.

    I've recently read about smoking a boneless chuck roast for poor man's burnt ends. You've inspired me to try it myself.
