Ingredients for the BBQ sauce

  • ½ cup Ketchup
  • ½ cup Chile Sauce
  • ¼ cup Brown Sugar (light or dark)
  • 1/3 cup Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Liquid Smoke
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Black Pepper , freshly ground
  • 1/3 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Ground Mustard
  • ½ teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • Dash of Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (or more if you want it spicy; taste first then add more if desired)
  • 3 pound Boneless Beef Chuck Roast
  • Hamburger buns or rolls


  1. In a mixing bowl combine all ingredients except for the beef roast; whisk to fully combine.
  2. Add the beef roast to a 6-7 quart oval slow cooker (it can also be cut in half and placed in a round slow cooker). Pour the sauce over the roast and turn the roast to coat fully.
  3. Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook for 8 hours on LOW. When the meat is cooked, skim any fat from the surface of the liquid and discard. Using two forks, scrape the roast to shred it. Serve on buns or rolls. Extra portions can be combined with the sauce and stored in the refrigerator or frozen.
