Default Italian Beef - Chicago Style! (Pron)

Started w/ a 4lb. Bottom Round and rubbed w/ salt-pepper-garlic powder-oregano. Into a pan on a rack and out to the BSK @ 350.

After 30 minutes added some au jus to the pan. Water - EVOO - red pepper flakes - garlic - giardinara - pepperoncinis - dried basil - dried oregano - beef broth - sliced onions

Pulled @ 138

Rested and wrapped tightly in foil for a cool down over night in the fridge
Sliced as thinly as possible by hand (meat slicer would have been real handy here)

Added Au Jus back to the pan for another 4 hour rest

Back on the BSK @ 350 for 1 hour or so

Toasted some fresh rolls on the BSK and piled high w/ mozzerella and more giardinara

Definitely one of the BEST Italian Beef Sandwiches I've ever had!

Looks delicious. I did Dr. BBQ's Italian Beef not too long ago and need to post up a thread on it. That cook came out great but yours fantastic. I will definitely have to try your method and compare.

It looks like those pop up thermometers that are put in turkeys that pop when it's supposedly "done."

Thanks for the idea. I am definitely going to try this!

Nicely done, I like those kinds of sandwiches.

Yelonutz: me either, but, then again, I don't drink any less
