This is a easy, no-brainer recipe. I throw this into the crock pot before work and come home to delicious goodness. One thing I would like to note is that my crock pot produces a great amount of liquid during cooking. I have found it best to put in a small amount (1/4-1/2) of BBQ sauce for the majority of cooking time , drain the liquid (my crockpot gets SOOOO watery!), and then add the rest of the sauce during the last half hour or so after I have shredded the meat.

It's true, this is a no brainer recipe. I'm not a big fan of BBQ sauce but I got many compliments and it was super easy. The BBQ sauce is undetectable unless you add more to final product. Meat pulled apart easily and very tender.

Wow, what's not to love about this. It was quick, easy, tastes great and smelled delicious while cooking. The meat was extremely tender and fell apart. The sauce was amazing. I used garlic bbq sauce and a lot of hot pepper sauce, (my favorite crushed habaneros) yummy served with rice. Thanks so much for sharing.
