  1. Start off by melting 1 cup of wagyu beef tallow https://amzn.to/3ShoW4t and inject the chuck roast in the fattest sections. 
  2. Apply a tablespoon of melted wagyu beef tallow as a binder and season generously with your favorite all purpose bbq seasoning. 
  3. Fire your smoker up at 250 degrees F. Add a few chunks of hickory wood chunks and add the beef chuck roast. 
  4. Smoke for 3-4 hours (until 165-170 internal temp F.) and remove to wrap. Be sure to spritz with apple cider vinegar every 45 minutes.
  5. Lay out butcher paper and apply a coating (the size of your meat) of the wagyu beef tallow on the butcher paper and place your chuck roast on it. Apply another 2 tablespoons of wagyu beef tallow on top of the chuck roast. Wrap and place back on the smoker. Let it roll until it is probe tender (another. 1-2 hours).
