HI,I want to smoke a boneless chuck roast.Any ideas on the best way to do this?Thanks.Also,thanks for the tip on the smokers at wal-mart.I have to order it direct,but at the price you can't beat it.Plus my wife works at wal-mart,so will get 10% off.So it comes out to where the shipping is free.I like that.
The others have given some great answers on your roast question. At this point, probably best answered with a question. What type of smoker do you have in mind. Vertical or offset, gas or charcoal? What's your budget range?
I have the charcoal Great Outdoors Smokey Mountain that precedes the Brinkman. I'm happy with it, after making some mods to the charcoal pan. (Replaced with a grate & ring.) And, from what I understand, either of the gas models works well. Plus, if you want to use both charcoal and gas, there's a modification using the Chargriller side fire box that will let you do just that.
For the offsets, I'd recommend the Chargriller instead. Check out the features comparison chart at http://www.chargriller.com
. If Northern Tools is still running their special, Lowes and Home Depot will price match it, plus an extra 10% off. Some people have found the CG at Kroger on close out for $79, if memory serves. L & HD may price match that, plus an extra 10% off.
FWIW, I've been using the CG for 3 years. Added the offset this past spring. Am well pleased with it. Would definitely buy it again.
Hope this helps, a bit.
