Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 250° F.

Step 2

Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 3

Mix together all the rub ingredients in a small bowl.

Step 4

On the parchment lined baking sheet, rub the seasoning all over the rub so that no meat or ​“red” is showing.

Step 5

Pour liquid smoke and cold brew onto the baking sheet to create a ​“puddle.” Place the chuck into the puddle, so it’s surrounded by the liquid.

Step 6

Cover tightly with foil wrapped around the whole baking/​roast sheet at least twice.

Step 7

Bake for 3 1⁄2 hours, remove foil and bake uncovered for the last 30 minutes.

Step 8

Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before slicing.

Step 9

Slice to desired thickness for tacos.

Step 10

Top with red onion, cilantro, and cold brew BBQ.
