Bourbon Barrel Beef

Wow, was this good.  Just finished stuffing myself.

This is a slightly modified recipe from "The Wolfe Pit" site:

Here are the ingredients I used:
1.) Yellow bell pepper
2.) Orange bell pepper
3.) Two jalepeno peppers
4.) Onion
5.) Mushrooms
6.) One carrot
7.) Six garlic cloves
8.) 1/4 cup worchestershire
9.) One bottle of bourbon barrel beer
10.) 4 lbs. of Beef Chuck Roast (beef shoulder)

Here's what I did:

1.) Rub 4 lbs. of Beef Chuck Roast with your favorite rub (I used Texas BBQ's Brisket Rub) and throw them on the egg at 275 dome for about 3 hours or until it reaches about 165 internal...


2.) Put all other ingredients together in a Dutch Oven while the chuck roast is smoking...


3.)  Throw the chuck roast into the dutch oven on top of the other ingredients and cook (with lid on) for another 3 hours (or until chuck reaches 210-215 internal).


4.) Here it is all cooked down after 3 hours...


5.) I took the chuck out and shredded it...and it pulled with 2 forks SO EASILY!!


6.) Here it is all mixed back together...


7.) I piled it on my plate and also ate it with on a french roll....AWESOME!!


Final notes:
I put in 2 jalepenos which were de-seeded and de-ribbed.  I noticed NO heat whatsoever.   
It was really good but not spicy at all.

Will certainly repeat this recipe as it was so easy to do and only takes 6 total hours.  Wife loved it too!
