Build a hot charcoal base in the Kamado Joe Classic III ceramic charcoal grill and stabilize the temperature at 400ºF, set up for direct grilling. Place a Lodge 7 Quart Dutch Oven on the grill grates to preheat.
When the cast iron is hot, add the ground brisket and smoked beef sausage. Stir in the Cattleman’s Grill 8 Second Ride Carne Asada Seasoning, Jacobsen Salt Co. Black Garlic Salt and cumin. Cook until the meat is browned, stirring occasionally.
Add the onion, poblano and jalapeño. Cook until the onions are translucent, stirring occasionally.
Stir in the garlic and cook for about one minute, until the garlic becomes fragrant.
Add the Ciao Italian Peeled Tomatoes, kidney beans and chipotles in adobo. Stir and break up the tomatoes.
Add the beef stock and beer and bring to a simmer.
Carefully remove the dutch oven from the grill. Remove the grates and add a fist sized chunk of hickory wood to the coal bed. Add the diffuser plate to create an indirect cooking setup. Return the grates to the grill and the dutch oven to the grates.
