Pepper Stout Beef and Stuffed Peppers
« on: May 05, 2018, 08:24:20 PM »

First run of the smoker in quite a long time. A few years. First run of the Smoke. First run of the Killa Grilla grate. Small issue there Ö I may need to measure its diameter Ö

3.5lb chuck post roast, seasoned with Weber Steak ín Chop.

Went for 300-350 degrees, using a regular chimney of unlit and started with a small chimney of lit + an apple wood chunk from the back yard. Began with all vents open, then soon shut an intake, then shut a second intake. Ran at around 310-330 this way.









My new CB door allowed a wisp to escape. The lid however, quite a bit more Ö




I didnít have the peppers needed for this, so fast forward. I get back and the meatís at 170! (It had been a few hours since I put the meat on.) OK Iíll throw it in the roaster along with the rest of the ingredients now.






Ran like this for quite a while, cooker over 300 and meat stalled at like 160. Yes, it went from 170 to 160 somehow. But the dinner timing seemed good so I left it alone.




With the meat cresting to the 190s, the fuel had run out. From just a bit earlier than this and for the rest of the time all vents were open.




I was surprised to see the apple wood chunk not only still there, but the only thing providing heat. (But it was near an intake that had been mostly closed.)



************************************
I had a second small chimney ready to go. I figured a short blast of heat would take the meat just over 200 and have enough oomph to melt the cheese on the stuffed peppers and cook broccoli.

So the extra fuel goes in; I later pull the meat at 204, take it inside and start to shred/cut it up. Taste is insanely great. Thereís a PSB step to put the meat mixture back on the heat after shredding but that was skipped.

Kid #2 assembled the stuffed peppers using the meat, cooked rice, cheese. Iím still cutting up the rest of the meat and task Kid #1 with applying Italian dressing to the broccoli and placing crown-down on the grate, along with the stuffed peppers already now there.

ďDAD, come here now! I need your help!!Ē




Somehow, he gets the peppers out. And so I ask Kid #2 to re-stuff them Ö now the broccoli can go on the cooker.




Slight problem; now bits of pepper/meat/rice are burning. I got what I could out, but most of it stayed. After a while I pulled the broccoli out of fear it would taste acrid. (It did not.)






My apologies for the lame and blurry plated pick. I gave myself the smallest pepper so that the rest of the crew could have normal ones.

But this PSB was the best ever. Iíd swapped an IPA for the expected stout. Not sure what else. Oh, I added some Daleís Seasoning (Low Sodium) too. Previous attempts I think Iíd used too much S&P, and the biggest methodology change was that the beef cooked direct (no water pan used). Incredible beef flavor and not too smoky.

Iíll never make PSB in a kettle again. But next time Iíll start with TWO chimneys of unlit.

The color in that chuck roast looks incredible. Glad it all worked out. I like the idea of using a ipa. So were the peppers stuffed with the chuck roast or other hamburger?

I wish I would have made psb yesterday instead of that sirloin roast.

Stuffed with the PSB's meat. My daughter's idea and I wasn't surprised. She'd been talking about stuffed peppers since the day before.

And in case anyone's wondering about my comment re: Killa Grilla grate diameter, it's fine. Although I'd never paid much attention to this before, this morning I was able to also easily slide the standard Weber cook grate to the side and watch it fall down. It's the WSM's lack of a sidewall (compared to the kettle) that lets this happen.

Oh my gosh that sounds good!  I may have to borrow that one.

I know PSB began as a sandwich (melt some cheese on it and serve on bread) but I love it with mashed potatoes ... gives the luscious juices something to absorb into, transforming the potatoes. Yeah, gotta mix it all up, goulash style!

I know I'm a little late to the game, but this post has been my inspiration to give PSB a shot on Father's Day. Thanks!

PSB is very good. We have done it twice in the past month. Both times it was great. Been eating leftovers on tortillas. Your roast looks delicious. And those peppers...nice.
