How to smoke 7 bone-in chuck roast
Now I’ll walk you through it…
Quick look at this 7 bone roast smoker recipe
- Season 7 bone chuck roast with BBQ rub.
- Smoke low for 2 hours at 225 degrees.
- Wrap in foil and smoke until done (190 degrees F will be fall-apart tender).
- Rest and enjoy.
Detailed recipe steps
- Preheat Traeger Grills or Pitt Boss or whatever pellet grill you’re using to 225 degrees F.
- Prep smoked 7 bone chuck roast. Pat it dry with a paper towel if needed, then massage BBQ rub into the beef, all over, including the sides.
- Smoke 7 bone chuck roast on low, at 225 degrees F for 2 hours.
- Remove from the smoker (leave smoker on with lid closed) and wrap 7 bone chuck roast in foil.
- Return 7 bone beef chuck roast to smoker and continue smoking wrapped in foil, until done to your desired temperature, which I recommend at 190 degrees F so it is fall-apart tender. (In the Sip Bite Go demonstration, the smoked 7 bone chuck roast cooked in about 3 hours. Then it was cooled for a few minutes and the bone popped right out!)
- Rest beef in the foil for 15-20 minutes, slice, and enjoy.
Serve this pot roast style with side dishes like carrots and potatoes. In the recipe video, you’ll see it cooked with smoked red potatoes.

Meat thermometer recommendations
Every home chef needs a reliable meat thermometer to cook food perfectly.
On Sip Bite Go, you’ll often see me using:
- Meater thermometer – a fancy wireless thermometer that connects to a phone app – gifted to me from a Traeger partnership.
- ThermoPro digital thermometer – which has a wire that connects the thermometer to a display box outside the oven/grill.

It’s like being psychic! The great thing about either of the thermometers above is that I don’t have to take the food out of the oven to know the temperature.
How to use ‘em… What I do is stick the digital thermometer in steak, pork, chicken, whatever… Then put the food in the oven, on the smoker, or grill.
While the meat cooks, it reads the temperature so I know exactly what temp meat is as it’s cooking. Without having to take it out and check. It’s really difficult to overcook food when you know exactly what temp it is inside!
