Preheat your rotisserie grill to medium high heat, about 400°f.
Mix together the dry rub ingredients. Lightly rub the beef with 1 teaspoon of oil and season all over with the dry rub. Spear the roast onto the rotisserie rod, secure using the tines, and let roast over indirect heat with the lid closed until the roast hits 127-130°f for medium rare, a little over 1 hour.
Meanwhile make the cheese sauce. In a medium pot over medium heat, melt the butter and whisk in the flour. Stir constantly until they combine in a light roux. Whisk in the beer in small amounts until it is all worked in and well blended. Add the cheese in small batches, whisking until it melts. Add the pepper and horseradish,taste for seasoning and adjust with salt as needed.
Caramelize the onions. Melt butter in a pan over medium low heat.Add the onions and stir occasionally until they turn soft and lightly browned. Don't rush this, you should take at least 30 minutes to slowly build the complex flavors of caramelized onions. Once the beef is done, remove from heat and let rest on a resting rack. Slice the beef thinly. Top the bun bottoms with the beef, onions, and drizzle with the cheese sauce.
Substitution Notes: For the beer in the sauce, we used an American style light lager but you can use whatever you like. An amber or stout will give you a darker color and deeper flavor.
The Aleppo pepper looks like red pepper flake but it is milder in heat and has a nice smoky flavor. You can just use red pepper flake or any red ground Chile (cayenne,chipotle, ancho).
I used store bought prepared horseradish. If using fresh,back off on the amounts some unless you really like the sinus clearing sting.
If you don't feel like caramelizing the onions, you can always just top your sandwich with french fried onions from the store like my son opted to do.
