Pit Beef Sandwich Recipe


This smoky, succulent sandwich is a Baltimore classic that’s gonna blow your taste buds away. And with this recipe, you can cook it at home on any basic charcoal grill.


  • 5# bottom round roast
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Killer Hogs AP Seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 Tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 Tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • kaiser rolls for serving
  • 1 thinly sliced sweet onion
  • Tiger Sauce (recipe below)

Tiger Sauce 

  • 3/4 cup Blue Plate Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup prepared horseradish
  • squeeze of lemon wedge
  • 2 teaspoons Killer Hogs AP Seasoning

Mix all together in a small bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.


  1. Combine AP Seasoning with onion powder, chili powder, paprika, and mustard powder in a small bowl. Drizzle olive oil over the bottom round roast for a binder and apply the seasoning to the outside.
  2. Prepare a charcoal fire for direct grilling over lump coal.
  3. Place the seasoned bottom round fat side down on the pit and sear for 2-3 minutes. Rotate the roast and continue to sear on all sides turning often.
  4. Keep searing and turning the roast until all sides have a nice dark color and the internal temperature in the center of the roast reaches 120°F. (the outer edges will be a little more done but the center should be perfect)
  5. Remove the pit beef from the grill and rest for 20 minutes before slicing thin across the grain.
  6. To assemble the sandwich. Spread Tiger Sauce on the bottom bun, pile on the sliced pit beef, add thinly sliced onion and the top half of the bun. Enjoy!
