ClayQ Pulled Beef Question

Now into phase 2 of the cook. Phase 1 shown here:

I doubled the recipe - all the meat did fit in my 9 quart DO. (Bacon and 3 roasts, then more bacon and 3 more roasts in the DO.) Added 2/3 cup maple syrup and 4/3 cup water, plus the juices from the drip pan.

Now the question: Is this too full of liquid for phase 2? I can remove some liquid if so.


Here was the beef and bacon a few hours into the cook:


Just a few hours to pulled beef goodness.

    Richard, I think you'll be ok at 250. You could also leave the lid ajar to aviod the bubble over.

    Thanks, Molly!

    It did work out. Removed from the BGE at 212 and pulled. Now it is back on uncovered for the smoke with BBQ sauce. I only ate a couple little nibbles while pulling. :P

    Will post pics when done. After normal people are in bed. ;)

    Looks fantastic! That's a lot of beef, wow!
    You don't need a lot of juice in stage 2, all you need is enough to braise the beef. That said, the extra juice can be used to help make the sauce for stage 3.
    Sorry I'm late to help, thanks to Molly for responding. With all that beef I was going to recommend you go 300 degrees dome to get up to 212 internal in stage 2. But you done that, been there. :lol:
    Nice work! Hope to see a samitch pic.
