Sedagive - If you still have one left, you might want to consider cooking it on the grill. If it's not finished cooking to your preference (mine is medium rare), you can quickly finish it in the oven.
Chuck roasts are highly underrated for flavor. Maybe it has a lot of fat? But you don't have to eat it if you don't want to. I'm certain you can find a deserving pet in the neighborhood that would love it. Often I'll cut the fat into little pieces, and add a Tb or so a bowl over a period of time. My dog's coat appreciates it as I am stingy, and feed him a healthy dry food only for the regular daily meals. I lied. sometimes I'll add a Tb of bacon fat before putting the rest in the refrigerator jar for cooking eggs, etc.
