This is a really good recipe for when you are having a lot of people over. It is simple to put in crock pot or oven. Has really good flavor. I put in crock pot over night and just shred the beef in the morning and let it go on low until needed.

Ellen a great BBQ sauce. instead of a roast I cut the recipe in half and did Brisket tips. I took them out of the freezer and into the crockpot, followed your recipe and instuctions. Turned the crockepot to high for 45 minutes and then to low for 5 1/2 hours MMmmmmmm excellent. Not only that, there is sauce left over so for tomorrow nights dinner I have added 2 tbsp hot sauce and 2 garlic cloves and poured the sauce over a veal cutlet that I'll bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Thanks for a very tasty easy recipe. I may add a bit of Parmesan on top. UPDATE: Ellen I can't add stars again but as I said in my rating I cooked the leftover sauce with a veal chop, added garlic, hot sauce and left over veggies, cooked potatoe, carrots & green beans, Put it all on a pie plate, sealed in foil & cooked for 30 minutes, opened it up added parmesan & asiago cheeses and let it stay in the oven until they were golden. MMMMmmm It's a winner Thanks

This was excellent barbeque. It was so nice to come home and smell it cooking in the crockpot. My family has eaten this stuff for four days in a row. We just can't get enough of it. The meat is so tender ,and the flavor of the barbeque sauce goes so well with it. The dish is so easy to make ,and really is a time saver. I wish I could give it more than five stars.

I thought this was pretty good. I was a little disappointed in the sauce, though. I was hoping for a more traditional BBQ flavor. This tasted more like tangy tomato soup. If I make this again, I will probably add some chili powder, garlic and extra sugar (or perhaps honey) to give it a more traditional barbecue sauce flavor. This is just a personal preference, you might love the sauce this recipe makes.
