How can I keep my pot roast (chuck) from shrinking? I cook it in the oven at low (250) heat for 3 or 4 hours but it usually shrinks by half

It shrinks because it renders fat and loses moisture -- so you can't really prevent it. Think of it as a good thing, because as it shrinks it also cooks through and becomes more tender.
