Pulled Chuckie. I cheated............but it sure is good!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I'd been craving pulled beef all week but knew I didn't have any time this weekend to get it done.  I had to work on Saturday and my wife was leaving on a trip on Sunday.  When my work ended up getting cancelled Saturday because we were unexpectedly locked out of the office I found myself at home at 1 PM still craving pulled beef, but it needed to be ready for dinner, not late at night.


I went to the local grocer and had them pull two 3.5 lb chuckies out of the back.  They know what I like.  I oiled them up, hit them with a Coffee and Chili rub, put them both on a rack in a disposable aluminum roaster, then smoked them uncovered on the Weber with charcoal and hickory for two hours at 250F to 275F.


Then I cheated (head hanging in shame).  I pulled them off the grill, piled a chopped sweet onion on top of the two chuckies and put two cups of garlic and onion infused beef broth in the roaster.  I sealed them up tight with HD aluminum foil and cooked them for 2 1/2 hours at 350F in the oven.


When I pulled them out of the oven the roaster was FULL of liquid and they were PERFECT at 202.5 degrees.  I pulled them on a bakers sheet, mixed in the onions that were still left on top and that were in the drippings, then saved the drippings for soup.  I added about a half bottle of Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce, a little of the au jus, then rang the dinner bell.  I remembered to take a picture after my wife and I had filled our hamburger buns.


I know, major cheat, but it was and still is (leftovers) DELICIOUS!

Looks great, even with cheating. We like adding bell peppers and whole garlic along with the onions, yumm!!

I really like the fact that I can crank the heat up in the Mini-WSM, my gasser, or the UDS so I never have to cheat!

Looks awesome! No way is an oven or wrapping in foil cheating. Makes for nice and moist meat.

not cheating, you knew what you wanted and what your time frame requirements were. sher does look good.

Why thanks all!  I'm still enjoying the leftovers, moist and delicious with just a hint of the hickory.  Can't hardly wait to make the bean soup out of the drippings.  First rainy weekend, that's what'll go in the big pot.
