We all love using a slow cooker to make Pot Roast for Sunday dinner. After all, a beef chuck roast is a classic recipe. We take this beloved classic and elevate it to the next level by putting it on the Traeger for a Smoked Pot Roast.
The result is a tender, juicy, melt-in-your-mouth beefy flavor with a wood fire-infused taste that is simply irresistible. The smoky flavor will leave you drooling for more with each bite.
By cooking this roast low and slow on a smoker pellet grill, the flavors are enhanced by the wood pellets, and the naturally tough cut of beef has the chance to break down, creating the tender pieces of meat we love. It has so much flavor.
If you are new to smoking foods on a smoker grill, this recipe is a great one to start with. A chuck roast is less expensive than brisket and can be less intimidating for many to cook with a smaller cut of meat.
The prep time for this chuck roast recipe is only fifteen minutes! First, rub the roast with the dry spice rub, smoke it for two hours, then place the roast in the dutch oven with all the veggies and smoke it for an additional five hours. After tasting this Smoked Pot Roast, you may never go back to the traditional crockpot cooking process again!

- First, preheat the smoker to 180° F for fifteen minutes.
- Next, using a small bowl, mix together the garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, marjoram, coarse black pepper, and coriander seed.
- Then rub the mixture onto the chuck roast.
- Set the roast directly on the grill grates.
- After smoking the roast for two hours, increase the temperature of the smoker to 275° F.
- Then, add the roast to a large Dutch oven.
- Add the vegetables, beef broth, red wine, seasonings, and remaining ingredients on top. Cover the Dutch oven and put the lid on the smoker.
- Finally, cover and cook for an additional five hours on the smoker.
- Remove the roast and veggies when finished and serve!
- Instead of red cooking wine you can use beef broth.
- We’ve used a variety of potatoes in this recipe with great success. So if you don’t have fingerling potatoes, then you can use Yukon gold, red bliss, or even russet potatoes.
- Tomato sauce or tomoato soup can be used instead of Bloody Mary mix.
Serve: You can keep the smoked pot roast out for about two hours before it needs to be covered and refrigerated.
Store: Cover and keep it in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
Freeze: We like to freeze the meat because the veggies get too mushy when you’re frozen and then defrosted. Place the meat in a freezer-safe container or Ziploc bag and freeze for about two months.

Smoking a pot roast is not just a good idea; it is a great way to make a roast! A pot roast does best when it is cooked at a lower temperature to allow the connective tissue, which makes the meat tough, to break down and become tender. Smoking it does just that, plus adds the fabulous wood fire flavor.
A 3-pound roast will take about 5 hours to smoke. Initially, start with the temperature at 180 degrees F and then bump it up to 225 degrees F for the remainder of the cooking time. However, each smoker grill is different, so the cooking time may vary slightly for the roast to get to the doneness you prefer.
There is no need to wrap the roast in aluminum foil when smoking it. Instead, place it directly on the grill grates for the first two hours. Then place it in the dutch oven with the veggies, cover the dutch oven with its lid and place it back on the smoker for an additional five hours. The juices that the foil would catch will be caught in the dutch oven.
