Mexican Road Kill
Each country, sadly enough, has its own tradition when it comes to road kill. In Arizona it's rattle snakes, in Australia it's kangaroos, each country has it's own vulnerable species. Fortunately you don't see this too often: a bull hit by a car on the highway. We hit this unfortunate black steer in the middle of the night on a very dark road in Mexico.
As you already know, life's a bitch, and one should make the best out of any situation. Here you see my friends claiming their roadkill for their Sunday barbecue... At a weight of somewhere between 600 and 800 pounds this is going to be quite a feast!

Don't Try This at Home...
Here's a picture of the car after its midnight encounter with the big black bull:
Mexico is a country with great tradition. Since this accident, which just as well could have gone completely and fatally wrong, my two friends and I share the same birthday!
In a way, this Highway Beef could be regarded as the big brother of our famous Highway Chicken:

The PitBoss Suggests:
Hot Smoked Cube Roll / Ribeye Roast
To make Roast Beef in your kettle grill is really quite easy. The combination of indirect grilling and hot smoking enables you to slow roast this whole Ribeye (or Cube Roll) to perfection without charring the outside.
Brazos Beef Rub
Amarillo Dry Rub
Enjoy your barbeque beef - cold or warm - sliced on a fresh sesame bun, buttered or with mayonaise, or - as you please - with some mustard or horseradish!
