  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 1-1½ pounds smoked beef brisket or chuck roast
  • cup BBQ sauce


  • sliced pickles
  • sliced white onion


  • If using leftover meat that needs to be reheated, place the sliced meat in a small baking dish with any leftover juices, cover with foil and bake in an oven preheated to 300 degrees F for 20 minutes or until the meat reaches 160 degrees F. 
  • Transfer the sliced brisket or chuck roast to a large cutting board, using a large knife, chop the meat until it’s only small bits and pieces, this should give you approximately 3-4 cups of chopped beef. 
  • Toss the chopped beef with the bbq sauce. 
  • Layer the chopped beef on the bottom hamburger bun, top with sliced pickles or onion and the top bun. Serve warm.


  • Chopped Beef: use smoked brisket or smoked chuck roast.
  • BBQ Sauce: use your favorite, or make your own (Texas Style BBQ Sauce)
  • Pickles & Onion: these are classic toppings, you could also spice it up with some pickled jalapenos. But simple is better when it comes to these beef sandwiches.
