Chopped Beef with Jack Daniels Barbeque Sauce


chopped beef jack daniels bbq

My Grandmother has the best recipe for brisket.  No this isn’t it. Yes it takes forever and takes a good 12 hours to do properly. I don’t make it very often but my mom happened to make some for Christmas and I wanted to get one more meal before the rest went into the freezer. I love making barbeque sauces so why not try something new that I know Mr. RWB will like…he likes beef, he likes barbeque and he likes Jack Daniels…VOILA!  Here in the south we call this chopped beef so grab a beer and get ready to enjoy this Texas specialty!
