    I wanted to slow cook a beef roast to pull and make Green Chile, and you all overwhelmingly voted for the Chuck Roast.

    I have made this green chile in the past, but always done it with a Boston Butt. So this weekend, I decided smoke a Pork Butt, AND a Chuck Roast and see which people liked better.

    Here is the seasoned Butt, which I then wrapped and set in fridge over night. I didnt go too heavy on rub since it was goin in the green chile

    I got my fire started at 8:30 am, and got the meat put on @ 9:30.

    Here is one of the only times I was happy with my temp gauge. It got so windy out, that the gauge was goin way up, and way down with every big gust.

    Great looking burritos. Sam's Club has the Stokes Green Chile Sauce here. I keep a good supply in the pantry. I also lather up my burritos with Tabasco green.

    Was going to ask which was the winner but 2-2 seems about right.
    I don't think I could make up my mind if I had to choose between the two.
    [​IMG]for a delicious experiment!

    Nice job, I eat a lot of green chili stew here, not smoked though. I did make smoked chicken green chili soup and it was delicious, made with a cream base.

    Thanks for sharing.[​IMG]

    First off those both look great and I really love the green chili part the best. And then you used it in both so I win both ways. [​IMG]Have to go out for you pulling it off and you ended up with a tie. Well looks like you'll have to send some down here and we will do the tie breaker thingy. Great Job.
