Pulled Beef

Smoked Pulled Beef Recipe

Everybody knows how good pork butts are done in the Bradley! MMMMmmm…Good! I have never got around to trying pulled beef, so I decided to do it this weekend, and I gotta say it was not a disappointment! It turned out fantastic! Here’s how it went.


Cider vinegar

6 – 10 lb. beef chuck roast

Dubby’S Rib Rub:

1 C sugar

½ C paprika

¼ C salt (you can use reduced–sodium salt)

3 Tbsp black pepper

2 Tbsp each celery seed powder, garlic powder, onion powder and chilli powder

1 tsp cumin and ½ tsp cayenne

(Make enough for a 10-pound chuck)


Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

Any leftover rub can be stored in an air-tight container.

Next, wash the surface of the meat with cider vinegar, and apply the rub.

Place in a 210°F preheated smoker, and apply 4 hours of hickory smoke.

When the internal temperature hits 160°F, remove the meat from the smoker boat it in a foil pan with some apple juice and covered it with foil.

Return to the smoker and continue to cook until the internal temperature reaches 195°F. Remove from smoker and FTC for 3 or more hours.

If you like, you can take the internal temperature up to 200°F – 205°F.

Overall time was around 20 hours, plus FTC for 3 more hours.

Shred with two forks. Serve as part of a main dish, or use for sandwiches.

Freeze leftovers for later use.
