    First pulled beef

    So i have a 3lb 2oz Chuck roast that will be pulled beef at some point tomorrow. Dry brined yesterday. Big Bad beef rub tonight. Looking forward to it. Using Hickory chunks. 275 temp. Wrapping mid stall. Hoping it will get done in a decent time frame. Wish me luck

      You got this... show us pics!


        I did that cook last week on my Big Green Egg... I didn't wrap. It was very tasty. I also had some shorties on the top shelf.


          It has been getting smoke for am hour now. Should i put another chunk on or is this good enough? I haven't done much beef so I'm unsure if it gets ruined by smoke easy

            Deus you got it happening man... it is gonna be good, I can just tell

          so there is a little voice in my head who acts like he knows everything and he bases everything on "feel". at 2:45 the beef temp was 205. it had been wrapped since about 1pm so it hadn't been wrapped too terribly long. my voice told me he "feels" like it cooked long enough. so i take the chucky out at 205 and put it in my faux cambro. i go back to my project which hits a stopping point 45 minutes later and my wife is "snacky" and the voice in my head says he "feels" like 45 minutes is enough. so i take it out and start to shred it. i notice right away it doesn't shred like i think it should. it's definitely tender but i am expecting pulled pork type shredding and i am getting some tug. i pour some of the juices in with it to boost the flavor. i try it and it is awfully tasty and quite tender. wife loves it. i notice after shredding it and letting it cool it starts to dry out a bit. i get sad. i pour more of the juices on to the meat to save it (i had over a cup, is that a lot for 1 chucky?) and it does do quite a bit. i know it's good. it's tasty and i keep going back for more but i'm still kicking myself knowing i probably should have gone to 207 and i probably should have let it cambro for twice as long as it did. i give it a 9/10. notes for next time. i need to stop listening to mr.feels and keep listening to pit boss!Click image for larger version

        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees.
