question about pulled beef

I have never had super great luck with brisket and we all pretty well like pulled or chopped rather than sliced beef. I am looking for suggestions about cuts of meat to use and method. I did a couple of chuck roasts in a foil pan in my electric smoker that came out pretty good.

I am pretty well open to anyhing if anyone has any ideas

I don't know if it is permitted to link to another site, but I read alot about beef 'clod' other here:http://askabutcher.proboards.com/ind...play&thread=87

it is tough to find, but you end up with like pulled pork, except it is beef! Much better than a manwitch!

Re: question about pulled beef

Its real hard to beat brisket. All you have to do it wrap it with some liquid and overcook it and you got mushy beef which can be torn asunder in any direction. Danny Gaulden did a side by side test on clods vs briskets and though the clods yielded a little mo copiously the briskets being a lot cheaper blew it out of the water for all practical purposes including flavor. Anything would beat chuck roast. I hate the texture of that stuff. It comes off in plugs or something.

I'll second that. Pepper stout beef is good stuff. I found some leftover in the freezer last week and used it as tamale filling. Try it, you'll like it!

btw, it is absolutely ok to link to other sites here. That's one of the reasons this board
got started....free talk about cooking, with as much info as possible.
