Talk about easy and delicious! I do have one suggestion though. We raise our own beef, so I know there so I know there is not water added to our roasts, but I know how using a crockpot, roasts make their own 'gravy'(water). I cooked my roast on high for 3 hours, then I drained off the excess liquid, then I added the barbecue sauce on top and cooked it on low for an additional 7 hours. If I hadn't drained the extra liquid off, this would have ended up like soup. Otherwise, the beef shredded beautifully and was very delicious. My children ate it up and went back for seconds! Thank you Myrna!

very good and easy...would be great for a pot luck or informal party!! used missy's suggestion and cooked roast on high for three hours and then drained it. added barbeque sauce (sweet baby ray's) and cooked for an additional seven or so hours. still came out really soupy, even after shredding. drained it again, added more barbeque sauce, put on low in the crock pot for another hour, and it was perfect. my meat must have been really juicy. took a little extra effort on my part, but well worth it for the great results. oh, like some of the other reviewers i subbed fresh onion and garlic for the powders. thanks for the great recipe, myrna!

This was very easy to make and it made the whole house smell yummy. i used half an onion and i clove of garlic in mine. I do recommend though maybe waiting to add the bbq sauce until the roast cooks a bit because it does get real watery. that way you could maybe drain the crock pot. Its up you though. I did it just the way the recipe said and even though it became watery, when you shred the beef it soaks up the sauce and comes out okay. I really did enjoy making this one!
