    I think the BBQ sauce I used was too tangy to begin with. It was just way too overpowering!

    I'm always on the lookout for a good crockpot Pot Roast recipe. This recipe was very easy to make but I wasn't thrilled with the result. The meat was nice and tender but there wasn't as much flavor as I had hoped. I think if I make this recipe again, I will try a smokey barbeque sauce to hopefully get some more flavor.

    Absolutely tasty!! I've always had trouble making a good pot roast, those days are over now! This recipe got rave reviews from some of the toughest critics! Thank you for sharing this delightful and tasty recipe!

    Delicious, delicious, delicious! I used to cringe whenever my mom would make a pot roast because it would always be dry and bland. Not this one though. I used a hearty chuck roast and a cheap-o bottle of Open Pit BBQ sauce. Followed the directions otherwise and had a fantastic dinner. A definite keeper and one of my new favourites.

    Outstanding and delicious! Add simple to the equation and you have a 5 star recipe! The only thing I added was a cup of multi-colored sweet peppers, only additional color on the plate. It was a huge success with my family. Thanks for sharing!
