Clay's Pulled Beef

For quite awhile now, I have been looking for the time to make this happen. Of course, I followed Clay Q's recipe and the results were good.

As you can see, the finished pic shows slightly over cooked beef. The misstep was actually during the dutch oven step - I could not get the dang meat to 215 degrees. I checked the temp with my thermapen just to be sure, but it sat there at 206-209 for over an hour. Anyway, after 3.5 hours in a 2-hour step, I moved on.

All in all, great recipe by a fine cook. Despite the poor execution, the results were good, as well.

    Yep. About 5 lbs worth of chuck from Costco.

    Clay's recipe is top-notch, I've done it several times and it just keeps getting better. I'm sure it's possible to overcook it, but if you keep stirring the dried-out bits into the liquid at the last step, I think it just gets better and better the more smoke gets to it.

    I wonder, I didn't see the maple syrup/water mix in the bottom of the dutch oven. Did you remember to pour it in?

    Yes I did, Mr. President.
