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!

Mexican Tradition

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

Brazos Dry Rub 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

Brazos Dry Rub The Brazos Beef Rub recipe is quite easy to make: salt and pepper, and a hint of Tex-Mex: garlic, paprika, rosemary and cummin.
While it was designed for beef, it is also great on lamb or mutton!

Amarillo Dry Rub

Amarillo Dry Rub The name of this yellow dry rub recipe refers to Amarillo, the town in the Texas Panhandle, along the famous Route 66. Cowboy country, and a very good place for barbecue beef!

Leftovers ?

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!
