"Loved the recipe, but tweaked a few things to my family's liking. First off, I didn't have time to wait 10 hours to eat. So I did cut my beef in half and cooked on high for 3 to 4 hours. Done. Delicious, tender, & juicy still. Also, in the ingredients, I added double the liquid smoke, 2 tsp cayenne, and used sweet baby rays spicy bbq sauce. Served on toasted buns with mustard, pickles, and pickled jalepenos with a few dashes of hotsauce on top. DELICIOUS bbq recipe. #welikeitspicy"

"Wonderful recipe! I place two onions, sliced, in the bottom of the crock pot before I put the meat in. I also use about 1 cup barbecue sauce and 1/2 cup of ketchup. Makes great sandwiches served alongside coleslaw and beans. A real keeper!"

"very good. Met expectations. Next time will add some spice (maybe cayenne) as it was a bit mild for our tastes.Slow cooking is a wonderful thing in some cases, and this is one of them!"

"This was delicious, my meat was just a smidge under 3 lbs rather than over, did it exactly as written in recipe, served on rolls, my husband put Mancini mild Giardiniera on his, kind of a mixture of onions, peppers, carrots etc. Made enough for 4-6 people, I froze some and put some aside for a lunch for husband. Coleslaw may have made a nice addition, like with pulled pork. Let meat cool, put disposable gloves on and shred away, easier than fork, you can pull all the fat off, chuck tends to be tasty, but fatty. Messy to eat was my only complaint."
