Smoked Italian Beef Sandwich

Recommended Posts

Every weekend this month was busy for me, so I had to throw together something quick in order have an entry into this months challenge.  I'd made Chicago style Italian beef sandwiches before in a crock pot, so why not in a cast iron pot on my Big Joe, and why not add some smoke!


I took a nice chuck roast and blasted it with smoke for about an hour and a half a 225 degrees.



I was ready to rip off a chunk of it at this point, but I resisted.



Next, I threw in the rings of 1 sweet onion, and a whole jar of pepperoncini peppers and their liquid.



Throw the lid on and wait!



6 hours later, the beef is ready for eating.



After splitting and lightly toasting the inside of the rolls, I filled them with beef and peppers (for those of us that wanted them), threw on some provolone, and on the smoker for a few minutes to toast the outside of the bread and melt the cheese.



Toasted and tasty!



The final product along with some blue Tortilla chips, and a dollop of homemade sauce for dipping.  The sauce consists of sour cream, horseradish, dill, garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, salt and pepper (you could also simplify and use a packet of ranch).



I can tell you that I'll be revisiting this one in the future.  It was crazy simple to make, but it tastes awesome!  The smoke flavor added a nice touch on this sandwich, so I can't see going back to the crock pot method anymore.

This looks amazing!  I'm posting the link to this thread on the Kamado Joe Facebook and Twitter accounts tomorrow evening.  I also may do this cook as a video in the near future!  Fantastic job with it!
