crock pot bbq

ok most of the meadors got to try this recently, but it was less than my best, so i'll post here so you can try it for yourself.

1 chuck roast( 2.5lbs - 3lbs)look for one with lots of marbling; those streaks of fat otherwise known as cow cellulite, it makes the roast more tender.
1 yellow onion
1-2 cups of bbq sauce (i use kc masterpiece)
1 can of dr. pepper

chop your onions and put in the bottom of the crock pot. I chop mine fine usually, but roughly chopped works well too.

Place your chuck roast on top of the onions and cover with the bbq sauce. use your best judgement. i used 1 cup the first time and wanted more the next time.

gently pour the dr pepper over the roast.

cook on low for 9 hours. your supposed to be able to cook it on high for 5 hrs, but i didn't have great luck with it.

after the 9 hrs pull the roast from the liquid that has accumulated in the crockpot( save the liquid it comes in real handy later)

with two forks shred roast. i usually take a little of the juice in the crockpot and a little more bbq sauce and mix it all up good.

serve on buns

Finally! A reason to buy a crock pot. Sounds great!

Jenn Hacker said...

Can you use a pork tenderloin roast for this, too?

Becca said...

I don't see any reason why you couldn't. They shred very well, and dr. pepper is a common secret ingredient for ham.

My family always used Coca-Cola for our ham.
