Okay. The Chuck Roast went off quite well, except I didn't use enough foil for the end part.
I seared it well, and cooked it well, but for the last 1/3 of the 1.5 hour cooking process, I didn't foil it enough. As a result, when shifting it I lost alot of juicy goodness, when a hole ripped in the foil. I fixed it with more foil, but it was already too late. It came out good (moist and tasty) but alot of fluid was lost which was the point of the foil. It was good, but it could have been awesomer.
So my recommendation (using a 3 lb chuck roast) is to sear it for 10 minute per side (so a 20 minute sear), then roast it off heat for about 40 minutes (turning and flipping if it appears to need it) and then FULLY wrapping it in foil for the last 40 min and keeping it off heat.
The ribs were great. 1/2 hour boil with about 45 of low-heat grill, basting with bbq or whatever for the last 15 min.
Now, Sheepherder's Salt.
I've done some looking, so you better goddamn appreciate this, cuz apparently no one has this mix (or is willing to share it). Pay attention, this is the ultimate all-purpose seasoning. Its not a "never use anything else" seasoning, its a "use it with everything else" seasoning, especially in place of salt per recipes.
