Good day

I'm assuming this can be done

what is the best cut of beef for doing a pull?



  • Most use chuck but any grainy cut would work

  • I use chuck. I drape bacon over it and cook it like a butt.
  • Chuck is the beef pork butt! yummy like a dog food to a possum!


    Paul Go there. I write it.

    Pulled Beef BBQ is a treat.  Chuck roast, also called English roast or Arm roast is great for pulled beef.

    In my opinion, you only want to use "chuck".  I've tried Arm and Bottom roast and it doesn't come out nearly as good.  There's less fat in these cuts and it doesn't pull nearly as good.  Stick with the chuck, which is the beef equivalent to pork shoulder.

    Surprisingly enough it is 'chuck' or 'shoulder'

    While we are at it ... we don't have any pork cuts called boneless ribs!

    We do have a 'country or Texas' style rib that actually has bone in it .... butterflied loin with a small portion of rib & backbone.

    Never eat anything passed through a window unless you're a seagull ... BGE Lg.

    I bought some "boneless ribs" from SAMs club and cooked them at 325 on the bge for a couple of hours and sauced them at the end. Think they are loins cut to look like ribs.
  • No they are probably shoulder ribs. Go there. I write it.
