Pepper Stout Beef(pics)

WIth it being St. Patty's Day and me having some extra Guinness, I decided to make some Pepper Stout Beef.  

Here we are with the chuck roast at IT of 165 and being put on top of the veggies(onion, green pepper, garlic, 1 jalapeno).  Foiled it until it hit a temp of 210.


Here it is shredded and ready to be put back on the egg unfoiled to reduce liquid. 


Sandwich Time!


Everyone loved it.

    Looks great, I would love to try it!  When does the Guinness go in, before it is foiled and put back in and what temperature are you cooking?

    Awesome!  Great idea for St. Pat's.  

    I googled and found this recipe:

    Is that similar to what you did?

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Did this over the weekend too (sorry, newbie pics!).  Awesome results!  The smell drove the neighbors crazy!

    I did a 4 lb chuck at approx 250 - 265 degrees until internal temp hit 165.  That took about 4 hours.  Placed the chuck in the pan and covered for another 2 1/2 hours or so at 350 degrees.  Pulled, then back in Egg for about 20-30 min to let the juice reduce.  The total cook time was around 7 hours.

    I'd hit that sammich!

    But what do you mean by "extra Guinness"? Doesn't it all get used for lubricating the cook? :)

    Looks like you nailed it. Nice work. Extra Guinness is hard to come by, please let us know where you find it.

  • wondering how much stout you put in this?
  • NDGNDG Posts: 1,186
    Yours looks great!  I tried this a few months ago and it was delicious, but after the leftovers cooled I had really large balls of beef fat throughout.  This was not like leftover pulled pork with pockets of white, it was rock hard white balls dispersed evenly throughout - not a good look. 

    I will make it again, but I will be taking some extra time to skim alllllll the fat from the top before cooling in the fridge.

    I just made some this weekend too. My first try at it. Must have missed something because it really didn't have much flavor. Not beefy. Not peppery. Just bland. Pretty sure I put all the ingredients in it too. I'll give it another try though. You guys have never steered me wrong.

  • @minniemoh   I think the pepper stout is a little bland as well.  Try this one.  It has some serious kick to it! ;

    @dmarois I put one can it and it took awhile for it to reduce.

    I always did that in crockpot before I got into outdoor cooking. I have to do this one outside. Here is another one I used indoors. I think I added less of the envelopes. I thought it maybe to salty.

    I made this Saturday and it was very tasty.  I was getting short on time and put the roast in the pan around 145 IT.  I would not recommend doing this for anyone trying this recipe.  Not enough of the fat and grease had rendered off the roast, meaning it all ended up on the pan.  While it did add some good flavor, it makes it look more like a stew as apposed to pulled beef.  Of course you can always pour this out before serving like I did, it does give the meat more of a greasy flavor than I think it would if you let the roast go to 165 IT.  Overall it was very good and everyone loved it.
