Don't pay too much attention to the name here. The Smoky Barbecued Beef Sandwich tastes like barbecue, but there's no grill involved. This recipe is inspired by cuisine in the South, where barbecue is a particularly beloved flavor. Enjoy the essence of barbecue without firing up the grill by baking meat in an oven instead. The beef takes on that familiar barbecue tang from a number of unusually paired ingredients that it cooks in: beer, brown sugar, adobo sauce, cloves, Worcestershire sauce and more. Slice the meat thinly to make it go farther. To prevent rolls from becoming soggy from the moist beef, toast them well before serving.
