Smoking a shoulder clod- with pics
My wife and I are taking a trip to Texas in the spring and I want to hit some of the BBQ places in Lockhart. I know that Texas is typically beef BBQ and we usually do pork around here. I’ve been reading up on it and see that beef shoulder clod is a popular cut. Well I bought a 16 lb shoulder yesterday and have it trimmed up and rubbed down. It will go on the smoker around midnight. I’ll post pics of the result. I’m looking forward to it.

Its the chuck before it has been broken down into roast. Thats the way I understand it.

Before Brisket and Beef Ribs became mainstream, most Texas BBQ was shoulder clod.

I’ve read about them but have never seen one in a store.

I asked the butcher to get me one about a week ago. My wife picked it up yesterday. It’s a rather large piece of beef. Shaped like a Boston butt but much bigger.

Kreuz Market in Lockhart still smokes shoulder clod.

Some solid BBQ joints in Lockhart.

Sliced? Pulled? Chipped?

I’m gonna take it to 190ish. There are several different cuts in it that have different textures. I plan on slicing and pulling some.

I for one am interested to see how it comes out. What kind of wood are you using?

BTW, Texas Monthly Top50 BBQ Map may be a helpful guide to some other BBQ joints depending on which way you're coming from.

I'd recommend taking lots of pictures of the whole process.

I am....I’m going get the smoker going in about an hour.
I have a few racks of ribs that people bought in a school auction that I’m doing during this cook. They are going on around 6am for a noon pickup.It’s gonna be a good night.

If you're going to Lockhart via I-10 (Houston) here's some recommendations for the Houston area:

Corkscrew, (old town) Spring, TX - north side of town
The Pit Room, Richmond Dr
Roegels, Voss Rd
Killens, Pearland, TX - south side of Houston

6.5 hours in and it’s at 144. I should be hitting the stall shortly. It gonna get wrapped in butcher paper around 160-170.
