READY IN: 8hrs 5mins
Recipe by mailbelle

This is one of my favorite crock pot recipes. Has a wonderful smokey flavor. Use a package of powder mesquite marinade - not a bottle of liquid marinade. Will try to post pic of marinade package.

I wasn't sure if I was going to like this recipe, the mesquite marinade is really powerful. My house smelled like an outdoor smoker all day. But the roast turned out supper tender and was not too smokey. It really has the same flavor and taste as smoked brisket, which I love. Only change in ingredients is I added the full can of soft drink, which was regular Coke by the way. This made enough sauce to baste it occasionally.
