    Sherry from Louisiana's Note:

    This recipe is a favorite of my family.It is a great recipe for parties. Even the little ones eat it up. It is full of flavor and some find it addictive! You can also cook a pork roast with this recipe for bbq pork sandwiches. You will just have to carefully pick the meat to remove all fat before adding the bbq sauce.We like our bbq beef on toasted buns with mustard and pickle or a spoonful of homemade coleslaw.

    1. 1
      Season both sides of the roast with the salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and minced garlic.
    2. 2
      In a dutch oven on your stove top heat the oil on medium-high heat. Add the roast and lightly brown each side. This takes about one minute on each side.
    3. 3
      Pour in half of the bottle of beer.Put the cap back on you will use the rest later. Top the roast with the brown sugar. Add the sliced onions.( These will cook down and the kids won't even see them.) Put the lid on and cook on medium for 1 1/2 hours.Make sure the juices are at a low simmer.
    4. 4
      Take off the lid and pour in the other half of the beer, turn the roast over, mix everything around real good and put the lid back on. Cook on medium-low for another 1 1/2 hours.The juices should be at a lower simmer now.
    5. 5
      When the time is up check tenderness. The meat should pull apart with a fork easily.
    6. 6
      Remove the roast from the pan to a plate if it is done.
    7. 7
      The onions should be cooked down to practically nothing and there should be no more than a cup of juices left in the pan. Add the bbq sauce to the onions and juice in the pan.
    8. 8
      On the plate cut the roast across the grain at about every 3 inches. This will make the roast pull apart into smaller pieces. Pull the meat apart with a large fork into shreds.
    9. 9
      Add the meat to the sauce mixture and mix very well. The meat will absorb all of the sauce quickly.Let it sit on very low heat for about 30 minutes before serving.

      Excellent and so easy. I remember eating pot roast as a child but my mother was never specific on a recipe. My kids aren't big fans of bbq so I fed them their portion before adding the bbq and it was delicious and of course not spicy. Some how, though, I accidentally managed to dry it out.

      I cooked this covered, in the oven at 300 for around 4.5 hours until it fell apart, and then drained, shredded and refrigerated it. The next day, I topped it with Guy Fieri's smokey BBQ and put it in the crock pot for 2 hours on low and it turned out great. I used 4 cuts that totalled around 8 pounds.

      I loved it - guaranteed moist meat. Next time I would reduce the sugar by 1/2cup. Just a little too sweet. My sauce was Head Country Hickory Smoked BBQ Sauce. I will try to find something a little tart-er. Thanks for sharing!
