All kidding aside, try it. It's not that hard to make, but does require a little planning. The best cuts of beef, which USED to be considered "junk" are skirt or flank. Almost nothing else will work, (I've seen chuck, too greasy, and London Broil mentioned (it dosn't have the flavor) it needs to be a long fibered (NO puns dammit :tongue: ) so it will shred.

REAL Texas style chili contains NO BEANS  nor any tomatoes!!  :bird: [/chili purist mode]

Anybody that would use either is either a Yankee or simply disregards the history of chili or they're just sick in the head !

BTW, Wineslob, I often use chuck, but I trim most of the fat out of it. I've also used smoked brisket, which turned out wonderful (again, I trim a good majority of the fat away)

Usually with a chuck roast, you end up with no meat left.   :-)  I forgot about brisket. I'll have try that when beef isn't priced like gold.

I haven't had that problem with chuck roasts. Of course, I look for the leanest cuts.

As far as the brisket, I had smoked some a while back. It was getting old and it needed to be used up. I cut it up for chili. The chili turned out wonderful!!

Yeah, beef is outrageously priced right now. This drought in Texas has definitely hurt the beef prices.  Ranchers can't hardly afford to feed their cattle.  All of that gets passed onto us, the consumer.
