Certified angus chuck roast was on sale today for $2.99 a pound! I promptly asked the butcher if he had a trash can for my shopping list and bought 0.8 stone (11.25lbs).
Naturally, the best looking ones were 3" thick, freshly cut, and sitting in the display case. I took all of them. The butcher looked annoyed by that, which didn’t dampen my mood in the least. He should have hid them if he didn’t want me to take them all. Anyhow, now that I have this mountain of meat, I plan on eating nothing but meat all weekend just for fun. I’ve never done that before, but it sounds lovely.
So here I am with roughly 12,000kcals of chuck, which coincidentally is exactly how many I plan to eat in the next 3 days during my refeed. The question is, what should I do with these beauties? My first thought was just to smoke them all low and slow at 225 over a mix of cherry and maple. But that takes half a day and I’ve just come off a 90hr fast. I’m hungry. I’ll smoke two tomorrow and cook one now.
Chuck roast is usually something that benefits from a long cook time. I’m trying to think of something that will put a 4lb chuckie on my plate in the next hour. Any ideas?
