BBQ Pulled Beef

Back to Beef

from Kyle, an EAGLES Tailgater

5-6 lb. of beef chuck roast
3 carrots, chopped in large chunks
1 large onion, quartered
2 bay leaves
4 large garlic cloves smashed
2 ribs celery, cut in large chunks
1 large bottle of favorite BBQ sauce, I use Sweet Baby Rays spicy Honey

In a large stock pot add all ingredients except the BBQ sauce, and just cover with water.  Bring to a boil, then cover, and turn down heat to a simmer.  Let beef simmer for about 2 1/2 hours, or until meat begins to fall apart easily. Remove meat from pot reserving the cooking liquid.  Let cool briefly, then begin to "pull" the beef with 2 forks, resulting in a shredded beef.  Add the pulled beef to a large bowl. Add BBQ sauce, and enough of the cooking liquid to give the beef a "cole slaw" look.  I add about 1 cup of the cooking liquid along with the BBQ sauce.  I then place the beef in a foil pan so it can be heated up on the grill, and serve on toasted hamburger buns. It is the best! Enjoy!
