Reviews for Shredded Barbecue Beef
"I will never use any other recipe. This is the *one I will use from now on. The aroma filled my entire house and I couldn't wait to try it! After trying my first bite-the flavor did not disappoint! I will never use another brisket recipe. So glad I found this. Thank you so much for sharing. All of my friends and family were raving the whole night."
"Super yummy! Great flavor and very tender."
"Love the flavor! I used 2 2-1/2 pound briskets that were thin cut (like a ham steak) and they cooked in about 4 hours. The BBQ coated the shreds, but it was not overly saturated with sauce. If you like a lot of sauce be sure to use a smaller brisket or more sauce."
"This is WONDERFUL and easy to make. I make this when I have company over and everyone loves it !!!"
