Put a bowl of this slow cooker BBQ pot roast in front of me and there’s only one outcome: me asking for seconds and probably thirds. That same great flavor as a traditional pot roast, completely amped up with BBQ flavors. Surprisingly different and really a treat to eat!
I used a sweet and spicy BBQ sauce when I made this slow cooker BBQ pot roast. You want something with a smoky flavor, and maybe even a bit of a spicy kick. After all, this isn’t your normal pot roast.
Also try my slow cooker Mississippi pot roast.
