I don’t think there’s any better food for cold weather than pot roast. The BBQ Sauce defintely gives the pot roast a different feel and you could easily shred it and serve it in tacos as a spring or summer meal.

I cooked this recipe in my oven but you could make it in your slow cooker instead. If you do you will need to cook it for about 7 to 8 hours on LOW or 5 to 6 on HIGH.

I like to use a thick and a little bit sweet BBQ Sauce, like a Kansas City-style sauce. I think it works best for this BBQ Pot Roast recipe.

The meat gets seared in a Dutch oven and then onion and garlic get added along with an entire bottle of BBQ Sauce. When I say BBQ Pot Roast, I mean BBQ Pot Roast! This meat has tons of bbq flavor.

Then it slow cooks in the oven for about 3 hours at which point it is perfectly tender, easily shreddable, and so full of flavor!

BBQ Pot Roast is delicious served with rice or potatoes for a filling family meal. It’s pure comfort food!

  1. Big hit with my family. I browned the meat and softened veg on stovetop then finished in slow cooker. Great summer meal with a slaw on the side.

  2. My favorite meal is chuck roast, mashed potatoes and gravy. This bbq roast recipe is fabulous, the roast was so tender and full of flavor! The bbq sauce went well with the mashed potatoes and corn on the cob for a side made this meal complete!

  3. I make this once a week. My son is picky but eats this till its gone! Serve it over white rice & fried rice or mashed potatoes or baked potatoes. Sometimes I throw a cup of frozen broccoli in crock pot last hour of cooking after i shred meat or slice meat thin too. So easy and good. This is the only meal I never have leftovers of
