    Egglectic, You're right-that's great food. Last year on our family vacation, someone asked what everyone's favorite food was. I thought I'd hear things like steak, lobster or maybe pizza from the younger folks. Once someone mentioned the Clay Q's pulled beef that i make on the Egg, almost everyone around the table agreed it is their favorite food. It takes so long to make it that I usually make a double batch. I did 12 lbs of chucks on 4th of July, then double stacked 2 DO's on my adjustable rig for part two of the cook.
    Thanks for posting.

    Hi Clay! Last year I did 18 lbs, but that was in two eggs with a total of 4 DOs B) That was actually easier because I didn't have so much jammed into the DO. Also, when I make them I go to the butcher shop and get really thick chucks. I figure if I'm going to spend most of the day doing it, I need to maximize my production!!
    Brian
    PS-I'll check photobucket. I may have pics from the 18 lb cook.

    Clay, Couldn't find the 18 lbs, but here's how I do it in one Egg.

    And the set up for the DOs
    BigGreeneggPhotos317.jpg
    Basically, the spider on the bottom, then the pizza stone,then some 1/4 inch copper elbows, then the DO, then some rods through the adjustable rig, add the grid, then another DO on top. Very important...remove the thermometer before closing the lid. I found out the hard way :sick:

    Man that looks great! This has been on my list to try.

    Is there a particular type of sauce you prefer for this...or just your favorite Q sauce. For pulled pork I like a vinegar based sauce, but for some reason I'm thinking for beef I might like something more robust.

    Also- if I don't have cowlick is there any other blend of seasoning that will get you close? Thanks! It's about time I order some cowlick but I'm not sure if I'll get it in time.


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

    Tip; In stage two if you have a lot of beef it can help to bump the dome temp up to 300 degrees to target internal temp around 212 for pulling. Otherwise meat might stall for hours and hours. I'm talkin 9lbs. or more.
    Good luck. Give me a hollar anytime if you have questions. :cheer:
