Pulled Beef
« on: October 21, 2011, 11:07:36 am »
I would like to do pulled beef instead of pulled pork.  I am thinking of using a chuck roast and cooking/smoking just like I would a pork shoulder for pulled pork?  would that work?

Just take to IT of 195, FTC, then shred?

Yep.......chuckie is great for pulled beef.........cooks just like a butt.

A big ol 7 bone roast works good also.

I've found that boating the beef with some liquid (beer, wine, apple juice, whatever) and covering with foil after the smoke phase results in a much moister end result.

Ok, so sounds like I need to use the ol Texas Crutch, don't do that with Pulled Pork.  But, if that is what needs to be done with Beef I will do that.  You normally use Beef Broth?

your on the right track and the  others  have  set you along the  right  line... also after the smoke  empty the bowl and add some flavored drink.. beer,  oj  soda.... any thing but water as it  adds a better taste

Can you really tell a difference when you do this?
