  • Lawn Ranger, and during that last minute while the steak is sitting (if not into low-cal) just place a little butter on top - garlic butter is even better. [p]Life is GOOD :~}
  • Lawn Ranger, for the last little while we have been playing with top-sirloin trying to duplicate what we ordered at Bistro Zinc in Chicago - and we are almost there. [p]My favorite butcher cuts the meat at about 1/2 inch thick. BGE is heated to abou…
  • QBabe, pulled beef is definately on the dry side compared to pulled pork. That's why the last step (unlike what I do with pp) is to add a thin BBQ Sauce to the pulled beef. [p]

  • Hammer, check out the link - it wil answer most all of your questions. And the real answer is... it only matter what you think of the results! Give it a try, chuck roast isn't real expensive and you may like what comes off the BGE. [p]Life is GOO…

  • Borders, check out the link - it may be of help. [ul][li]Stuffed Green Peppers[/ul]

  • NW Egger, lets just hope it was a bad piece of meat. I've done 'many' bone-in butts on my medium and every one has turned out great. With that said, I have yest to have one finish in less than about 18 hours. Actually, 20-21 is more typical, but …

  • Chef Wil, minor variation on ChefRD's - I make frequently.[p] [ul][li]Hot Wings[/ul]

  • Painter, right on - I moved my BGE to a different location, but it is still under the cover of the deck. It merely moved from the west side (in the picture) to the north side!

  • Frank, my personal preference is NY Strip - about 1.25 to 1.5 inches thick - 2 minutes per side at about 750/800 degrees and the merely close out the air and let sit for about 4 minutes for medium rare - serve and enjoy.

  • frank, congratulations - ckeck out the link - all done with my medium BGE! [ul][li]Gfw's BBQ[/ul]

  • RhumAndJerk, check out the link - another "Texas Chili" recipe - no beans and no frills - steak over ground beef, but I like your combination of chilies.[p] Good Luck! [ul][li]Texas Chili[/ul]
  • GonnaGetOne, a picture is sometimes worth many words - a Boston Butt, two forks and a little pulled pork![p] [ul][li]Gfw's BBq[/ul]

  • Bill in VA, I usually look for the English Cut, but I have also done it with just a plain chuck roast - good results. BBQ Beef tend to be a little drier that the pork, so I do mix in a light BBQ Sauce after pulling. Check out the link, it may hel…
