Pretty good but a touch too sweet for us. If I make this again I would choose bold and spicy beans over BBQ. Left out the potato as I served this over big spicy steak fries per some of the reviews, yum! Added probably about 1/2 cup of our favorite BB sauce (again would change what I chose), but this makes it's own liquid so don't make the mistake of adding extra liquid (I was tempted...glad I didn't.) When done after 8 hours in the slow cooker, I added more spices; more salt, freshly cracked pepper, more crushed red pepper, more garlic, tad bit of liquid smoke and a tsp or more of worstershire sauce. There is absolutely no need to brown the meat first; done that and it makes no difference after the meat is slow cooked for 8 hours or more. Seasoned the beef first with salt, pepper, red pepper flake, and garlic powder before cooking (should have added more red pepper. ). Loaded a half jar of pickled jalapeños in the last hour of cooking, that turned out well. Thanks for the recipe!
