SMOKED BEEF ROAST

This smoked beef roast is soft, juicy, and as flavorful as a smoked brisket. However, the use of a chuck roast is simpler and faster to prepare.

Ingredients

  • 3-pound chuck roast
  • 1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard (or as needed)
  • 1/4 cup BBQ dry rub (or as needed)
  • Wood chips for smoking

Instructions

  • Preheat the smoker to 235 degrees. (You are aiming to keep it between 225-250 while smoking.
  • Rub chuck roast with yellow mustard then generously dust it with a BBQ dry rub. Use your hands to rub it into the meat.
  • Place the chuck roast in the smoker and add wood chips. Smoke for 6-8 hours, adding additional wood chips as needed.
  • Chuck roast is done smoking when it is tender and the temperature reaches 180-205 degrees. It will get more tender the longer it cooks. Remove the chuck roast at 180-190 degrees for slicing, or 205 degrees if shredding.

Notes

You can use any of your favorite wood chip flavors for smoking, however, hickory is a great one to start with if you are looking for some guidance.

You can smoke a larger or smaller chuck roast as desired. Expect a larger roast to take longer to cook and a smaller roast to cook faster.
