Simply delicious! This juicy shredded barbecue beef is very popular at our family gatherings. The tender meat is slow-cooked in a savory sauce that includes chili powder, paprika, coffee, ketchup, brown sugar, brown mustard, hot sauce and cider vinegar.

I used a 2.5 lb pork shoulder roast because that's what I had on hand, and left out the onion since I didn't have any, and it still came out great! Super easy and looking forward to the leftovers already.

Just for the sauce I would make it again. Never made a sauce with coffee and I don't even drink it so I was very surprised. Next time with pork, as suggested in other reviews, and I will make enough sauce to dip some chicken in. Thanks

The sauce was fingerlickin good even before I cooked the meat. I would make it again and try some of the other meats as suggested in the reviews.

We made this with Pork instead of Beef and used all the ingredients except Liquid Smoke. It was really good

I made this ahead of time for a hiking trip. This was full of flavor and a HUGE hit! I am saving this to make again. The extra time that the sauce requires is worth every minute!

This was delicious. I bought a Beef Brisket as we don't have Chuck eye cuts in Britain. I cooked it in the bottom oven of my AGA 24 hours. It was delicious! I thought it tasted best served on Toasted, buttered buns.

It's traditional in some parts of the country to serve coleslaw on a barbecue sandwich. Pile chopped or pulled meat on the bun and top the meat with a spoonful of coleslaw, which is also known as "chow" down South. The tart, crunchy cabbage goes perfectly with the smoky flavor of the meat. [I posted this recipe.]
