Maryland Pit Beef on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Note: This recipe was developed using the Char-Broil Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer. If you are cooking using the Char-Broil Smoker-Roaster Grill you should cook with the lid open and the temperature set to High. You might also need to adjust the cooking time.

Not too long ago I made a Maryland-style pit beef on my smoker. It came out fantastic, but left me wanting to try the same idea again, but make it easier. And when I think easy, I think about my Char-Broil Big Easy. So off I went, and let me tell you, this Maryland pit beef is fantastic. The flavor is just insane. The meat is so tender and juicy, with just a bit of a nice crust. Perfect on a sandwich.

Maryland Pit Beef on the Char-Broil Big Easy

The Big Easy cooks high-and-fast, and you want this Maryland pit beef to come off rare, so keep an eye on it. I went about 5 degrees further than I wanted, but I was still absolutely thrilled with the results.
I made simple sandwiches from this beef after slicing it thin. Just a bit of Sriracha horseradish sauce and that’s it. That’s all it needed. The beef has such great flavor that I didn’t want to hide it with onion or lettuce or tomato… or anything.

You can cook darned near anything on the Big Easy. Also try my tasty tender pulled pork.

Instructions

For the beef

  • Combine all of the spices.
  • Sprinkle all sides of the beef with 3-4 tablespoons of the rub. Don’t be shy with it.
  • Wrap the beef tightly in foil and refrigerate for up to 3 days, turning every 12 hours. The longer, the more flavor.
  • Fire up your Big Easy.
  • Remove the roast from foil and place into the Big Easy basket. Lower into the cooker and cook until the center reaches 125 F for rare, about 45 minutes. It’s easy to over-cook the beef, so start checking the temperature after 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the cooker and let rest 10 minutes before slicing thin.

For the sandwiches

  • Toast buns, if desired
  • Slather buns with the sauce.
  • Add plenty of onion then mound up the thinly-sliced beef.
  • Enjoy!
