It is the collagen in the meat converting to gelatin that makes it pull-apart tender, from my understanding. That can be unpredictable. I've had it done at 195, and not done at 210.

The probe test is pretty good. A thermometer probe should slide into the meat almost like butter -- very little resistance.

The salsa is not a pico de gallo. It's a legitimate salsa made from scratch with tomatoes, peppers, onion, etc. And it's put in a blender to liquify like u see in restaurants for chips n salsa.

How long do you cook it? Since it has a lot of fat and connective tissue, I have never found chuck roast to be dry unless it's been overcooked.

It is always fall apart tender when done but I find the added fat helps that. I just meant it's not my go to choice for slow cooking. I prefer lamb and pork for slow cooking and a lean beef roast prepared medium rare. Beef cuts for slow cooking is better with fatty cuts like oxtail or beef short rib.

After about 4 hours, I flip it over. Add more salsa, I like it hot. 4 hours later I pull it out, and end up cutting the meat with a knife. What am I doing wrong??
I don't care about modern fads in cookery. A lump of meat that falls apart in the crockpot (or anywhere else) is OVER-COOKED!!!

Do NOT get me started on "pulled pork"!!!!
