Whatever group you’re cooking for, they’ll love these flavor-packed sandwiches. The beef is slow-cooked until tender, and the light, tangy barbecue sauce is mouthwatering.—JoLynn Hill, Roosevelt, Utah

"I thought this recipe was absolutely delicious. A chuck pot roast works perfectly for this recipe. It shredded nicely and had great flavor with the sauce. I would definitely make this tasty dish again for my family."

"This was a good recipe. There was a lot of fat in the chuck roast though which gave the bbq a slimy texture. I think the sauce would go well with a shredded chicken bbq or a trimmed brisket."

"Tried this for Father's Day and it was excellent. I did drain the juices after removing the meat, and added BBQ sauce and liquid smoke to the meat before warming and serving."
