First attempt at pulled beef.....

  1. Was a fail even though it turned out delicious. I'm a little disappointed and I only have myself to blame. After foiling I inserted the probe through the foil, blindly, and wasn't 100% sure where it was in the meat. Anyway, after it alledegly reached 200 degrees I pulled it, placed it in a cooler and let it rest for an hour. When it went to pull it, I couldn't get the meat to budge. I ended up slicing it and calling it roast beef and made some sammiches. Check out the pics below and feel free to pass along any tips!

    Looks tasty anyways!!! Looks like a 7 bone? I know we all say cook to IT of, but for roasts like that I really cook by time with the smoker at a certain temp when foiling. Chuckies and 7 bone roasts are one of those cuts.

  5. Thanks! I wasn't disappointed with the taste, it tasted amazing but I wanted to be able to pull it.
     
  6. I had the same problem. I just finished it in the oven with some apple juice for 3 more hours. Was able to pull it then

    No Biggy!!!  Lesson learned for pulling Beef. As long as it tasted Great, you won!!!

    Lots of people pull it early, like 185*---190*, so they can slice it without it falling apart !!!

    Pull the next one!!
