    Juenessa's Note:

    A great alternative to hamburgers, hot dogs, or pork barbeque. Please note that the recipe calls for two whole chipotle chiles; not two cans of chipotle chiles. We actually removed the meat from our slow cooker to pull and chop it and served the sauce on the side (strained of all the onion, bay leaves and garlic). This way each person can decide how much sauce to use.

      This was okay. The flavor was good, but it was just too sweet for us.

      Yum! I used a beef bolar roast and replaced the molassas with golden syrup. After the beef was cooked I removed it from the crockpot & shredded it. I removed the bay leaves and pureed the sauce with a stab mixer, then thickened slightly with cornstarch. I served it rolled ip in a tortilla with lashings of sauce, topped with shredded cheese which I melted under the griller, shredded lettuce, tomato and sour cream on the side. This was the first recipe I have tried using with chipotle chiles in adobo as it's not easy to find here in certainly will not be the last. :)

      A good news; bad news recipe. Good news; the DH is excited that I now know how to cook a brisket. Bad news; see good news. ;-) I made just as written despite my trepidation about the _molasses_ addition. The meat fell apart after 8 hours of cooking; little shredding was necessary. The sauce is kicky without overwhelming heat (for us anyway). DH ate his per tradition, as a sandwich topped with jalapenos and sliced onions. I preferred it straight up with lots of sauce. Thanks, I think ... ;-)
