Doubled all ingredients except for the salt which I left out entirely and the water which I substituted with 3 cups beef broth instead I used a chuck roast. Really liked the flavor- although it was better the second day. Also, it seems as if maybe some of the flavor got cooked away as it smelled so good in the 1st part of the day but seemed to die down a bit after about 4 hours of cooking. Next time I will add a 3rd round of spices half way through the total cooking time. I probably would have rated this one a 5 but the family didn't really rave about it so 4 stars it is. Good enough to make again for sure but will definitely dbl the spices, use beef broth, and add a 3rd round of spices half way through. Edited 10/7/12- From 4 stars to 5. Made a 2nd time with the above suggestions. Dbled the seasonings cooked for 7 hours. Put crock in fridge overnight. Scraped the fat off the top in the morning, warmed it up a bit, added a 3rd round of seasoning and cooked an additional 4 hours. Wow. Outstanding. Definitely does not need any salt if using beef broth. Hubs liked his with horseradish, I mixed pepperocinis in with mine. Can't believe how good this was this 2nd try!
