Smoked Chuck on Beer Bread

I think this is my favorite sandwich. :)
I rub a chuck roast with olive oil, season with cracked black pepper and kosher salt, then smoke in my drum with hickory....






I made a batch of beer bread...

3 cups self rising flour

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 tsp salt

1 12oz beer at room temperature

I brushed the top with an egg wash and sprinkled with minced onion...then into the drum with the chuck.





when the chuck reached 160 degrees, I wrapped in foil with some beef broth...




then let it smoke til reaching 200 degrees F









the build....



shredded smoked chuck....




caramelized onions....




crispy bacon......





cheese, tomato and lettuce.....




I slathered the lid with a horseradish sauce.....












It's got to be one of my favorite sandwiches.... and my friends liked it too. :)

HOLY SMOKES. Literally. That looks amazing!

I can see why it's one of your favorites - it looks amazing. How can smoked beef and bacon on home made bread not be great.

Hi Em!
I forgot to add that to my post. :) It smoked at 225F, the roast took about 5 hours ( it wasn't very big) and the bread took about 2 hours.
I usually do bread at a higher temperature but wanted to smoke it at the same time I had the chuck going.
Hope you give it a try sometime. :)

I'm off to the store for a chuck roast. I was already smoking a couple of butts this weekend, so I'll let them drip on the chuck while they're smoking.

Have you ever put any onion soup mix in with the beef broth? That should make some good gravy.

cowgirl said...

Capt Ron, I have used onion soup mix, it adds a lot of flavor. I like to use cayenne too and sometimes just sliced jalapenos and sliced onions.
Hope your chuck and butts turn out well for you. :)

cowgirl said...

Thanks Rocco, hope you are having a great weekend!

cowgirl said...

Hey Gene, thanks! The beef ribs you are smoking this weekend looked great! I'd probably trade ya a slice of sandwich for a rib. :)

cowgirl said...

Thanks Jeffrey! It's pretty tasty.. I like the horseradish sauce slathered on the lid too. Goes well with the smoked beef. :)

cowgirl said...

I'm not sure what I will be doing tomorrow.

Now THAT is a chuckie sandwich. Until you cut that wedge out, I was thinking you were making a sandwich for Adam Richmand (sp?) from Man vs Food, ha ha.
