    Still in love with PMBE..so damn delicious.

    3.5# chuck roast rubbed with a brown sugar (substituted turbinado sugar) rub.  Started at 11 p.m., smoked with Hickory pellets.

    This one took a little longer than I had expected.  Probably because I kept the temperature lower overnight figuring I would have plenty of time the next day to finish

    it up.

    When I got up the next day, it was at about 150 and just hitting the stall. By the time I got up, the AMNPS was just getting to the end of the last row, so I started with

    Apple chips to finish it off.

    Finally around 2 p.m. she hit 185 and was ready to come out for a rest before cubing and saucing.

    2 hours later.....yum.

    Looks great! Unfortunately in my neck of the woods there's nothing poor about Chuck! $9.99 per pound!!!!

    Points for the bark!

    Thanks.  I know..with beef prices these days sometimes I wonder why they call them "Poor" man's.  I bought several packages at Meijer when they had a sale for $2.89/lb.

    I have yet to try these.

    I've seen several threads on them & I think this has to be the next thing I smoke.

    Point for a great looking meal!

    I did this with a Coulette and it was AMAZING. Great job, now I am hungry for some beef!

    That looks awesome and I have to try it soon!  Is that a custom handle install you got there?  I've been thinking about doing something similar but was afraid of drilling into the smoker...

    Yes, just a couple of Home Depot stainless 6 inch or so handles.  I had no other way to transport it from the garage, thru the living room and into the screen room without lifting it.

    They work great.

    Newbie here..so sorry for the simple question......once you got everything cubed and sauced and back in....am I reading it right that you left it at 150 for 2 more hours?
