I have been wanting pulled beef (since I never made it myself) and needed to prep for some lunches during the week...so this is a two day adventure in comfort food!

Rubbed a roast down with spicy mustard and brisket seasoning. Onto the Drum using lump and cherry pellets mixed in (running about 225)

About an hour in:

Pulled it around 155 and made a foil pan with Guinness, onions, mushrooms, roasted red peppers and some more seasoning: (the parts in the strained went on top once the roast went into the pool

Looks comfy! Back into the drum for a few more hours.

Pulled it when it hit 202 and let it rest for 30mins.

My 4yo boy loves to make cookies and bought some premade dough... So these he made for dessert.

Day 2 (done on the MAK... but what ever, she was felling lonely :)

Using the pulled beef that is all mixed in the wonderful juice. I chopped it a little more and made the mushrooms smaller. Added some artichoke hearts (roasted and marinated from Costco)

Simple plating for a good stick to the ribs meal.
