'pulled' Beef
« on: December 01, 2009, 12:22:03 PM »

I'm going to load a pork butt in my OBS Friday night to see how it performs in temperatures in the teens...  The Mrs likes brisket when I cook it to 200+, then pull apart/rough chop for sammies.

Could I do the same with a big cheap roast?   Any particular cut?

I do chuck roasts also. Very good results.

Store up the street has 'fresh chopped chuck' for 2.49 a pound...   Maybe I'll buzz the guys in the white coats and have them bring me a big one from the back, minus the 'chop'.

Thanks guys!

Hi squirt.  This is one I did.

It came out good but certainly wasn't brisket.

Thanks Habs.  I should have looked there first!
That's exactly what I'm wanting..

Will start them Friday night when I get home from work.   This will be a good test of the Bradley's insulation.

I do the pulled beef with chuck also, cook it just like a pork butt, pretty dam good but aint no way close to a brisket.

I dont think you will have any troubles maintaining the heat with your smoker in that cozy hut you have it in, just keep the doors closed as much as possible.

Thanks OU.  I'll give it a whirl.   Brisket is silly expensive here... (when I can even find one)  Not sure why.
I will use the Texas Crutch for sure - not going for pretty bark this time.

It just needs to be done by mid-afternoon, as my company's Christmas Party is Saturday night.  I'll FTC it while we are gone.

Heck, if the party food sucks (again), we'll come home for some good Q!

Oh ya, I thought you were going to put an range hood or some type of exhaust in that cozy hut you have there.

Got my hood done, will post the progress and some picts later, still working on a bench top though.
