This is really good. I'm giving it 4 stars because I think the cook time is way off. I used only a 2.75 lb. roast, and after 5 hours it was JUST getting to the point of being able to easily shred. The taste though is divine! I halved the recipe (since I was using a smaller roast), added a packet of Onion Soup Mix (per others reviews, thought this was a good addition) and added a quartered whole onion while it cooked. After the meat was done, I took out the 1/2 cup of broth, and then put the rest in a saucepot. I then added to the broth pot all the ingredients and brought to a slow boil for a couple of minutes, then added everything (meat and sauce) back to the crockpot for another 4 hours on low. Because I was running low on ketchup, and based on the reviews, I only used 1/4 cup ketchup and 1 1/4 cups Hickory Smoke Kraft BBQ sauce (for full recipe, I'd use 1/2 cup ketchup and 2 1/2 cups BBQ Sauce). I did not use the additional salt because of the soup mix, and I used maybe 6 shakes (12 for full recipe) of Tabasco in place of the cayenne. This recipe tastes authentic and it's addictive! Served with cornbread. (Sorry, I think this is the longest review ever!)
