READY IN: 9hrs 10mins
Recipe by Audrey M

I made this for the 4th and it was an easy dinner to put together while my family was able to spend some time together. It doesn't have to be cooked just for the 4th of July.

Made this for labor day, a little unsure if it would pass for pulled pork barbecue sandwiches. My wife was questioning everything I was putting in the crock pot. I used boneless beef roast that I had on hand plus spices that I thought might work, When I use the crock pot I like to experement. This recipe got me out of slaving over a fire pit to make brisket for pulled pork sandwiches. This was very tasty and a breeze to make, Give this time saver a try
