If you are searching for a traditional BBQ menu for the upcoming weekend, you can try this cooked Beef Chuck Roast to create a delicious sandwich. Also, you will have to plan it before 6 hours so that the chuck roast is cooked thoroughly, as it takes time similar to the brisket. 


  • Half cup Salt
  • One eighth cup Black Pepper
  • One fourth cup Garlic
  • One teaspoon Ground Oregano
  • One fourth cup Chili Powder
  • One fourth cup Onion Powder
  • One teaspoon Ground Parsley
  • Bread buns 
  • Mayonnaise
  • Caramelized onion


  • Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and rub it on all the sides of the chuck roast.
  • Light up the fire and add some pecan wood chunks in the smoker. After the smoker is at 250 degrees F, place the beef on the grate and close the lid properly. 
  • After one and half hours are over, change the beef’s sides, and let it continue smoking. For maintaining the temperature, continue adding pecan chunks to it.
  • Now, after three hours, remove the beef in the pan. Take the beef’s internal temperature, which should be around 140-150 degrees, and now remove it in a large steam pan and pour some beef broth or red wine to it so that the meat remains juicy.
  • Now cover the steam pan with aluminum foil and keep it back on the smoker. Let it cook for 2-3 hours, at least till the beef is cooked. But make sure that the pit is full of the fuel needed. Also, the final internal temperature should be 195-200, but a little temperature rise here, and there won’t make a difference. Remove it from the heat and let the steam escape. Let it rest so that it cools down while breaking. So while you are breaking it down, make use of hand gloves as it is still hot.
  • Now for shredding it apart, use a pork puller or couple of forks. If the meat is done nicely, the meat itself will pull out fine, and you can break down the pieces for separating the fats. If you want to have some moisture in the pulled meat, add some beef broth to it.
  • Also, you can make a pulled beef sandwich from the smoked roast chuck.
  • Toast the buns on both sides and apply mayonnaise on it. Scoop some pulled pork on it and top with some caramelized onions and close it with another bun.

  1. Rinse the chuck roast with cold water and then pat it dry using a paper towel.
  2. Use one or two pieces of twine to secure the chuck roast around its circumference. And then use three to four pieces of twine for tying it around the width so that a grid pattern is formed with the twine.
  3. Whisk all the ingredients in a small bowl for the rub. Mix it using a whisk, so no lumps are formed. Take the rub mix and rub it on the chuck roast on all the sides. Wrap the chuck roast in a plastic wrap and let it marinate for 4-5 hours in the refrigerator. This marination process helps the meat to absorb the meat.
  4. If you are doing it on an outdoor grill, make sure the coals are hot and then add the meat over the centre of the grate with the drip pan below filled with water. Add some soaked wood chunks and wood chips on the hot coals and cover it well.
  5. Use the vents with dry and wet wood chips so that it reaches a temperature of 225 degrees F. Add coals or soaked wood chips so.smoke and temperature is maintained for first four hours.
  6. Make sure the temperature is nearly 225 degrees F every hour and do not open the lid frequently so that the temperature and smoke are maintained.
  7. Smoke the Roast till the internal temperature is about 190 degrees F after 6-8 hours, and after the chuck roast develops a dark bark on it.
  8. After you remove the meat, it's temperature may rise to 200 degrees F, which is the perfect temperature. But if it increases more than that, then the meat may become dry and chewy, which is very well disappointing.
  9. After removing it from the smoker, wrap it in double layers of aluminum foil and let it cook in the smoker for one hour more till the internal temperature is 225 to 250 degrees F.
  10. This process helps in the tough connective tissue's meltdown and lets the outer surface parts get juicy due to the dripping of the juices.
  11. After one hour, unwrap the foil and remove the chuck roast on a cutting board with the foil below it. Let it cool down for half an hour till the temperature drops to 150 degrees F.
  12. Cut the chuck roast when you want to serve it, or else it dries quickly. Use a sharp knife to cut it into one fourth to one eighth inch pieces.
  13. Serve it simply on a plate or drizzle some BBQ sauce over the smoked chuck roast.
Recipe Notes

Cut the slices from the smoked chuck roast of the parts you want so that it does not get dry.
