Smoked Chuck Roast

I love smoked beef brisket, but sometimes I’m looking for something a little quicker. And cheaper. Smoked chuck roast is a great way to make a lot of chopped or shredded beef in a short amount of time. Just inject the roasts, add a little rub, and onto the smoker we go! The end result is a nice beefy flavored tender and moist meat.
Smoked Chuck RoastI chopped most of the chuck for use in tacos, nachos, and BBQ beef sandwiches. Some I sliced for beef sandwiches. It freezes well so I can always defrost a serving for a quick lunch. Just heat with a little BBQ sauce and toss onto a bun! Lunch is served!
