So you don't have a smoker and want that smoky flavor.  We understand your pain.  That's why our recipe master Russell came up with a fun, and equally trickster way, to get the smokiness of a chuck roast, without actually smoking it!  Yummm! 


  • 1 4lb chuck roast

For the Sauce:

  • 1 1/2 cups ketchup
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder



Combine sauce ingredients in a large bowl. Place the chuck roast in a slow cooker and pour sauce over it. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Shred meat with two forks, spoon out any large chunks of fat, and stir meat. Cook another 30-45 minutes.
