Default Pulled Beef...What cut of beef?

Besides brisket and clod, what smaller roasts can be used for pulled beef? What internal temp do you shoot for?

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

+1 on chuckie - my new favorite thing. I don't know what temp - just allow plenty of time for it to cook (1 1/2-2 hours per # depending on temp). It's also good sliced if you can't wait to get to pulling temp (probe tender). I wanna try a clod soon.

I usually do chuck...but I gotta admit my favorite "flavor-wise" is brisket point. The problem is I almost always make burnt ends out of the point and rarely just serve it as pulled beef. I guess I vote for either chuck or brisket.

Love chuckies and have tried arm roast, english roast and just about any big peice of beef thats on sale. All comes out good to me. I like to cook until 160* or so then put it in a foil pan with au jus, choppe green peppers and onions. Cover with foil and then back on until tender. Mmmmmmmmmmm Good!!!

There was a thread a while back with an awesome technique for pulled beef using chuck roast.

It's one of my favorite recipes now.

I buy the full chuck roll at 22+ pounds each, then cut it into 4 or 5 chunks, inject, rub & cook like a pork butt. Good eats right there!

Can I ask what you inject and rub with? Do you marinade as well? Also, do u mob with any kind of sauce? I wanna make this when I get home from afghanistan. I have several Marines and family members to feed about 15 total. How much should I make? I have a 18.5 weber smokey mountain
