Smoked Pulled Beef is a great way to get used to longer cooks on your grill, and it's really versatile. Use it in burgers and tacos or add it to pasta sauces or chilli!
Beef Chuck Roast approx 2-3kg
Meat Church 'Holy Cow' Rub
1 can of Stout Beer (substitute beef stock for an alcohol free version)
Set up your grill for low and slow smoking, approx. 250-275f/120-135c.
You shouldn't need to trim much off your chuck roast but look for any daggy bits or silver skin and remove them. Rub it generously, all over with 'Holy Cow'. There's not much chance of over seasoning a big cut like this!
Put the chuck roast straight into the smoker (smoking from cold will give you a better smoke ring), and let it go for about 2-3 hours or until you've got a great bark formed. If you've got some mesquite, ironbark or oak chunks add them to your smoker too.
Lay out 2 large sheets of heavy-duty aluminium foil on your bench, take the chuck roast from the smoker and lay in the middle of the foil. Wrap it tightly, but before completely closing it add the beer or beef stock. Wrap it in another layer of foil, this time going the opposite direction.
Put it back in your smoker and keep cooking until it hits an internal temperature of 205f/96c. Take the beef off the smoker and let it sit on the counter and rest for 20-30 minutes.
Using 2 large forks, or just your hands, shred the beef coarsely, mixing in any juices from the wrap.
Feel free to sub out the chuck roast for beef shin, rump roast or (if you can find it) brahman hump!
