Hi - I am going to smoke two 4.5lb prime chuck pot roasts instead of brisket (cost abatement). The cuts are about 2 inches thick. I plan to smoke at 225 to 160 degrees then wrap in butcher paper to 200. Looking for cook time advice as I need to have these ready to eat around 1pm. I do want to allow adequate rest time. Thanks in advance. I am a new Cookshack smoker using a smokette sm009-2.

When I do chuckies in my SM066, I smoke them about two hours and then finish by braising in the oven for another two orso hours until tender. Search "chuckies" here. Never done prime though, may be ok with only smoking.

Jay1924 - thanks for introducing me to "chuckies". I ended up cooking today for a meal tomorrow. Didn't trust my ability to time it correctly. 7 hour total cook. 3 hours unwrapped, 4 hours wrapped in butcher paper. Resting now. Sure smells good. Looking forward to unwrapping in a bit.
