Shredded beef sandwiches ... so good!

edited March 2020 in Beef
The cook takes about ~2hrs of smoke to set the bark and about ~3hrs in a dutch oven filled with 1qt low sodium beef broth and some cooking wine to cover about half of the roast.

You can add course chopped veggies to help flavour the beef, or skip this and reduce down the liquid into an au jus and serve over the beef after its shredded which is what I did in this video. To build our sandwiches we stacked the beef high, added some provolone cheese, melted it with a torch and added our toppings to serve.

Anyone else love a smoked and pulled chuck roast as much as we do?

    I’ve done this repeatedly after seeing it here. I may get shunned for this, but I prefer it to pulled pork

    This is one I love the idea of, but I for some reason have never had luck with executing on this dish.

    great for tacos, burritos, etc. depending on seasonings.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Pulled beef is a favorite around my house.  It needs to be cooked low and slow like a brisket and indirect then panned or wrapped with broth.  Definitely a cook of patience and not a quick cook

    Pepper stout beef is a regular in our schedule.  I wish the jalapeños at the store were more standard in their heat level.  Sometimes they are bland...

    I was this way for a while too. My biggest thing was not cooking it long enough. I just didn't trust myself when the Chuck would get above 205 and I would start thinking I was over cooking it. Let the beef tell you when it's done just like on a brisket.

    I saw this and remembered I have a chuckle in the freezer. Now it’s thawing for tomorrow.

    We prefer beef bbq to pork in my house as well.
