  2. Season the chuck roast on all sides with salt and pepper. Smoke for 2 hours to an internal temperature of 140°F degrees. Let rest.
  3. Place a large pot on the grill over medium heat. Heat the oil. Sauté the onions and mushrooms, until tender.
  4. Add the onion soup mix, cream of mushroom soup and can of beef broth. Chop the beef and add to the pot. Cover and simmer until the beef is tender, about 2 1/2 hours.
  5. Add potatoes, carrots, water, wine, bay leaves, garlic and onion powder. Cover and continue cooking for 1 hour, until the potatoes and carrots are fork tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
