CRAZY GOOD Poor Man’s Burnt Ends Story

This is an incredibly easy recipe to make on your Traeger that I hope you will enjoy!

{Traeger Style!}

Prepare the Chuck Roast for the Smoker

Start by cutting the chuck into cubes that are roughly one inch thick.  Don’t stress out if they cubes are not all the same size.


Place the cubes into an aluminum foil pan and season with Traeger’s Garlic and Chili Pepper rub.


Let the rub soak into the meat for about 30 minutes and then season with a light dusting of Traeger’s Beef Rub for a little bit of sweetness.

It's time to smoke

Turn on your Traeger and set the temperature to 250F. Let the burnt ends smoke for two hours.

Let's get saucy.

After the burnt ends have smoked for at least two hours it is time to add the sauce.

My Secret Sauce

1 cup Traeger’s Texas Spicy BBQ Sauce 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce 1/4 cup steak sauce

Pour it on!

Coat the cubes well. Tightly seal the pan with aluminum foil and return the pan to the grill.

Almost there!

Raise the temperature to 275F and cook for at least two more hours. The burnt ends are ready when they are tender enough to let a fork easily slide through.

Let's eat!

These burnt ends tasted like succulent steak bites and were incredible. You'll be making these burnt ends often!
