We’re taking an all-time household classic and injecting it with wood-fired flavor. This easy recipe starts with a chuck roast that is rubbed with a blend of spices then smoked directly on the grill for 90 minutes. Drop the roast in a Dutch oven with potatoes, carrots, onions as well as aromatics and chicken stock, and let it cook for up to 5 hours.
