edited October 2013 in EggHead Forum
Stopped by Meadow Creek BBQ this morning and left with a 22lb Beef Clod and 2 Pork Butts. The beef clod is the larger package, the other is the 2 pork butts packed together. Planning to slice the beef clock into 3 and vacuum seal/freeze 2 of them and 1 of the butts. The remaining butt and beef clod section will go on late Friday night or really early Sat morning for a party I'm having Saturday night. First time doing beef clod and looking forward to it.

    Will definitely be posting pics of this cook. I'm starting to reconsider dividing the beef clod into 3 pieces. I'm thinking I may just take off a smaller portion for this cook and freeze the rest. I'm probably aiming for aprox 7lb section for this cook along with one of the butts.

    Has anyone out there cut up a beef clod of this size, and if so, any recommendations? The reason for second guessing my divide into 3 is I'd like to give a really big piece a shot some time and I figure a 14lb or so would a good next step.

  • I've never done a clod. But over the years I have cooked whole top rounds, approx. 18-22 lbs in my bullet smoker. They are great for pit beef sandwiches.
    I made a rub of garlic, rosemary, olive oil,salt and pepper and mixed it together in a mortar and pestle and rubbed it all over the meat the night before.
    Cook over lump at 300 for 8 hrs.
    It was like eating prime rib.

  • I had a 20 lb boneless clod I cut into 2 10 lb chunks this weekend. one half took 13 hrs at 250 and another 2 hrs in foil at 325 to get done, with 2.5 hrs FTC.  I didn't inject, just used mustard and my all purpose rub.   Giant second stall at 179 degrees.

    My Wife doesn't do very much pork, so we ate it all as pulled beef.  It had some roast beef overtones, but was wonderful.

    I used cherry chips exclusively, I'd probably thrown in a few hickory as well.

    Just a ball park figure guys how much do you pay per pound for beef clod?  No one around here carries it and I don't want to pay way too much just to have someone order one.

    I'm really wanting to do the whole thing at once...but there are only going to be 15 total and I was going to do some pork as well. Maybe I could do it all and freeze it after... Any thoughts on how long the whole thing would take?

    man I'm just yanking your chain!!

    I would do some form of a split just because that little tongue section will cook a lot quicker than the rest.  Good luck!!!!

    Are you going to slice it or pull it?

    it could be anywhere from a while to over a day!

    I know you were, but part of me wants to put the whole darn thing on and see what happens. :) oh well, just picked up a roll of expandable Food Saver bags, so I guess tonight is butcher night.

    And I'm planning to pull it. I think for this one I'll do the "tongue" section.

    OK, cut into 3 pieces, each 7 lbs and change. 2 in food save bags in the freezer, one in a zip lock in the fridge.

    Last one I did was $2.95 a pound.  Ask the meat guy, they have them in the back or can get them no problem at every grocery store I've ever been to.

    Meadow Creek sells meat? I just heard about them a couple weeks ago for the first time. Do you have to preorder? Do you know if they have tri-tip?

    @ads75 Yep, they have a small freezer and upright fridge. Not always the largest selection, but good prices. If there is something specific you want you can order ahead. If you haven't been there it is worth th trip, I got my egg there. Super friendly and knowledgeable on all types of smoking/grilling/outdoor cooking. They also host an eggfest in June usually.
