And Now For Something Completely Different: Crockpot Barbecue

Believe it or not, you don't need a grill to cook barbecue. Crockpot barbecue is delicious!

Now, some purists might claim that Crockpot barbecue is not, in fact, barbecue at all, since it never gets to see a grill -- and that's what barbecue is, right? Grilled meat? Well… it can be argued that the term "barbecue" is based more on presentation and flavor than its acquaintance with a hot grill and open flame.

And since this is my blog, and I really like this recipe, that's how I'm gonna argue it. So there you go.

But Seriously, Folks…

As much as we all love to groove with our grills, sometimes the weather just doesn't cooperate—and most days, we don't have the time to do the job properly anyhow. As any aficionado knows, just getting the coals right can take hours.

So what's a barbecue lover to do when he wants fresh, hot barbecue on a non-holiday weekday?

Rather than take the day off to grill, you can turn to your slow cooker. Please don't see this as a step down, something of lesser quality that you have to accept because you don't have the time to do it right. You can get some great results from cooking barbecue in your Crockpot, and you don't have to sit home all day.

The Recipe

Okay, let's get started! Here's what you need for a rough-and-ready version of Texas barbecue from the slow cooker. It's nice and moist, and perfect for sandwiches. Please note that this amount can be made in even a relatively small cooker, but you can scale it up easily if your cooker can handle it.

2 pounds of pot roast
1 tablespoon of powdered mustard
4 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce
3/4 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce
¼ cup of water
¾ cup of Dr. Pepper
A dash of Tabasco

Add your roast and the water to the slow cooker, then cover the pot and cook it on low for 10-12 hours (or for 5-6 hours on high if you're in a hurry). At that point, it should be exceedingly tender. Drain the juices (your dog will appreciate them on its food) and remove the meat from the pot.

Next, use a fork to shred the meat, then put it back into the cooker and mix in the rest of the ingredients. Cook it covered on high for an hour, then dig in! If you're carb-conscious, Crockpot barbecue is just as tasty eaten off a plate as when eaten as a sandwich, and a lot less messy.
