We have done a few big chuck roasts now, because they taste great. What I like most about doing these big roasts is that someone always has them on sale. This is a big 8 ½ pounder that Patti found for less than $2.50 a pound. We ate roast beef burgers, BBQ beef sandwiches with a little Country Bob’s and stringed beef burritos all week. Patti likes to just put a piece of the meat in a bowl with no sides, just great beef. She calls it her hunk of cow.

That is a lot of good eating for very little cash and with that full beef flavor. This guy was tender and juicy with a nice smoky coffee kick. I made some changes to the rub and how I smoked it, all good…

Mix all the ingredients in a container, cover and shake to blend.

Directions: Coffee Injected Chuck Roast

Inject all the sweetened coffee that the roast will hold. Then, shake your rub onto the meat and work into the meat with your fingers. When you have a nice rub on it put it back into the fridge to let everything get happy. Put a heavy coat of your rub onto the meat, you want to form a crust. About an hour before cooking, pull it out and let meat come up to room temperature. (It will cook more evenly.)

Directions: Coffee Injected Chuck Roast

Shake your rub onto the meat and work into the meat with your fingers. Then, put meat back into the fridge to let everything get happy. About an hour before cooking, pull it out and let meat come up to room temperature. (It will cook more evenly.) 

Apply a heavy coat of rub for a good thick bark and then onto the grill. I smoked this guy at 225 degrees (107c) for 6 hours until I had an internal temp of 160 degrees (72c). Then, pulled the meat and put it into a pan with a few cups of leftover coffee. We added garlic and sweet onions to the pan also and covered it with foil returning it to the grill. Smoke for about another hour looking for an internal temp of 200 degrees (93c), pull and let rest. I use a Maverick ProTemp Instant Read Thermometer for checking meat temperatures.

Now, you can either slice it or string it. We did both. Ken wanted to string it to mix with barbecue sauce for BBQ sandwiches and plain for burgers and burritos.

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need follow closely like when you are making bread but, most you can do anything you can dream. Our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also, you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees, anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

Cooking In the Oven:

We have been getting requests for recipe conversions for the Pacific Living Outdoor Oven. I tell folks all the time that cooking on a Grill/Smoker is just as easy as cooking in your oven. Just about anyone can do it and do it well. Think about it. You set your control knob to the temp you want, put your meat in and leave it for a set time. It is the same thing, time and temperature is what it is all about. The Grill is just like your oven except it has wheels.

Do this for 7 Hours @ 225 degrees (107c).

Note: The Pacific Living Outdoor Oven also has a smoke box.

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Louisiana, Green Mountain, Royall, Memphis, Traeger wood pellet grills, Char-Griller, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Pizza Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can even do some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….

Live your Passion,
Ken & Patti
