I don't see how this could take such a short time to grill. Every other grilled chuck roast recipe I've looked at specifies 2-3 hours - even for a small roast - at a low heat to let the connective tissue melt. Won't this still be tough after just 45 minutes?

This chuck roast was delicious! However, I cooked mine in a slow cooker for 6 hours and served on buns. YUMMY!!

Our family and a guest loved it. I tried to sear it on both sides I think I did 5min on high for each side or maybe longer I seared a little to much. Most of is was perfect Medium rare but the very middle was rare. After searing I did 23min ish per side and let it rest well over ten min. We will make again. Its hard to find good ideas for this type of cheap roast, since its so fatty. My husband doesn't like stew so when i saw this I got excited and nervous all at once! We love to grill but I have never heard of grilling a roast. We will make again since we buy 1/4 of a cow every year and I have struggle w/ what to do w/ Chuck Roasts! Thank you!
