    Pulled Beef on a Weber 22"

    Hey all! I've done a fair amount of pulled pork, that has always managed to come out really surprisingly well! As opposed to my attempts at baby back ribs that are hit and miss at best thus far! I've been wanting to smoke something beef related though, and this coming weekend I think I have my chance! I have a couple spare beef shoulder roasts in my freezer that were/are intended to be ground up into burgers, but I would like to try smoking one into some pulled beef. I've seen others claim that you can just cook it exactly like pulled pork and it should come out just fine, any other opinions on that? It's about the same shape, looks to be about the same fat content as the pork butts i've done before, so it stands to reason that it should cook about the same? Thaw it a few days, salt it up the night before, rub it up with memphis dust in the morning, and smoke at 250 for ~12 hours, +/- a couple hours?

    Treat it exactly like a pork shoulder with the exception of the rub. For me (and many Q aficionados), MMD is too sweet for beef, I would use Meatheads Big Bad Beef Rub or just a lot of salt and pepper instead. Good luck, show us some pics of the final product!

      I had indeed forgotten about the Big Bad Beef Rub, but I'm gonna use that instead for sure, thanks!

      As a side note, the fact that this site makes it's rub recipes free-for-all was a big deciding factor in me signing up and supporting the site. The "other" site I was on wanted me to pay for access to their fancy rub recipes, which is their prerogative I guess, I just didn't like that they were hiding the recipe from people who may not be able to afford $20-30 to sign up to a dang BBQ website! In my opinion, all recipes should be free, hide "exclusive" forums behind a paywall if you like, that is much more palatable to this nerd.

      Thanks, I hadn't come across that thread yet in my travels. I found it odd that he mentions a really high initial BBQ temperature, but never mentions what he settled on for a stable temp? Maybe it's just assumed that you cook at 250 at that point?

      I have been under the impression that I should let my coals "chill out" after pouring for a bit, and get my temp down to 250 before throwing the meat on. Is there a benefit to that high initial temp, or perhaps does it not really matter all that much, as long as you get down to "normal" 250 range before too long?

      i have a gas smoker but i kept my temps around 250 and all was well. i always wait until the smoker is at temp before i put on my meat simply because i want to have the meat be cold longer so it soak up more smoke.

      Very good point on the initial meat temp, I wanna absorb as much smoke as possible!

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
