  1. Preheat oven or smoker to 275 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  2. Cut chuck roast into 1-2 inch squares. 
  3. Once cut, apply Dirt Nap Hot Sauce or Mustard 
  4. Season with Big Mama's Dry Rub generously 
  5. Once oven or smoker is ready, add chuck roast squares directly on grate
  6. Cook until internal temperature reaches 175 degrees
  7. Every so often, open the beer and spray burnt ends, rotating them as well 
  8. Once cooked, throw the squares into a tin foil tray and add barbecue sauce and butter. 
  9. Cover the tin foil tray and cook for an additional 1-2 hours in the smoker. If using an oven, keep an eye on the meat and sauce. Make sure the sauce is either bubbling or meat is tender enough to pull apart. 
  10. Serve and enjoy!
