Hawaiian Inspired Burnt Ends, Tropical Coleslaw and Herby Potato Salad

Hawaiian inspired burnt ends; a vacation on a plate just in time for Memorial Day Weekend, you're welcome. 
Tender, flavorful, delicious burnt ends made with chuck roast! The summer rival for pot roast! Coleslaw for the mayo haters – inspired by a slaw from Maui using coconut milk, pineapple, cubed cabbage, and green onions and cilantro. It’s a party. The potato salad made with bright herbs, springy lemon, and buttery ‘taters!
This is how we will be spending Memorial Day – everything can be prepped in advance, executed fairly hands off, and there is plenty of time to pay respects to the brave.
We love this recipe and taking a page from Cook By Color's book and fueling our colorFULLife moments with all the good food and experiences!

To start, remove Country Natural Beef Chuck Roast from the fridge & from packaging to come toward room temperature.

    • Place the roast in the center of the smoker.
    • Insert the temperature probe into the center of the roast.
      *You can use a regular barbecue as along as you can monitor the temperature and do indirect heat. 
  • Spritz or brush the meat generously with the apple juice and beef stock mixture every 1½ hours until the roast internal temperature reaches between 150 and 160 degrees.

    • Create a foil boat to set the roast in and pour in the remaining juice and broth mixture.
    • Seal the foil pouch to lock in the liquid.
    • Return the meat to the smoker and reinsert the temperature probe.
    • Turn up the heat up to 250 degrees.
