  1. Hi all,

    I smoked (small charbroil offset) 3 x 3 lb chuckies on Saturday. It took me more (5 hrs) than usual (smoker issues) to get them to 160ish before I wrapped them in foil with apple juice, but, except for one (very dry), they were moist, easily pulled, and family loved it. Further, I tried to slice those two and they would fall apart!!. So, I wondered: Had I been able to cook a perfect pulled beef? Or they were just overcooked? Where is the line between pulled and overcooked? See slices on board in picture below.

    By the way, I took them out at 203 IT.

    I think they were unwrapped before the meat's IT dropped back down to 140 ish....   which would have allowed for the juices to redistribute throughout the meat....
