5lbsbeef - chuck roastround roast,
1- medium yellow oniondiced
1cup-barbecue sauce- I use president's choice gourmet
wine vinegar - use apple cider vinegar or regular vinegar with a splash (about a 2 teaspoon) of white wine (if you have it)
brown sugar - use white sugar and add 1 teaspoon molasses
liquid smoke (optional): leave out liquid smoke (affiliate link) if you don't have it. Although, I do recommend it - it makes a big difference! You can find it at almost any grocery store or on Amazon.
Toppings: jalapenos or pickles and some people put the coleslaw right on top
🎥 VideoUsing a stand mixer to shred or 'pull'' your beef is a game changer- it's so much quicker! You could even use a hand mixer if you don't have a stand mixer (I have done this as well)Video: Shredding Beef in a Stand Mixer🌡️StoringStore in fridge for up to 3 days after making.
