Place the joint on a chopping board and season with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a large ovenproof casserole dish and brown the joint on all sides. Add the onions and celery and cook for 2-3 minutes until the vegetables caramelise.
Add the brown ale, stout or stock, barbecue sauce and thyme leaves, bring to the boil and reduce the heat. Cover and cook in the oven or on the hob for 2-2½hours.
