My take on pit beef sandwiches
« on: April 24, 2021, 07:44:15 PM »
Hey all!!! Itís been a while since I posted something but I made theses tonight and figured Iíd share....I got a 4.5lb chucky Im very lucky and I have a small family meat market right by my house and can get whatever I want and the quality is awesome. Anyway I injected with about a cup of beef broth and let it sit over night in the fridge. About 3:30am pulled it out did a salt and pepper garlic powder rub and on the smoker it went. Used 3 oz of hickory and a water pan with water. Wrapped it at about 160degrees cuz chuckís tend to dry out a little and put more beef broth and some butter in the foil and back in it went until 205 prolly about 10-10.5 hours at 225. Let it rest until dinner time prolly about 5-6 hours and about an hour before dinner cut up two large onions and caramelized them on cast iron skillet with some w sauce and butter. Unwrapped beef and pulled it and dumped the caramelized onions in and served on local bakery rolls with a home made A1 horseradish cream sauce. For the cream sauce I put A1 and Mayo and horseradish sauce and mixed put a little fresh cracked pepper also itís awesome. Anyway hereís a pick of the pulled beef with the onions in the serving dish! It was awesome and I highly recommend giving this a go.

That is just outstanding! Well done!

And thank you for sharing the process! Appreciate it. I have a chunky in the freezer that may just need to become pit beef!
