This is the easiest recipe on earth! Now, I made some small changes... I know, I know, I know... But, I found this other recipe online first and bacon sounded great. Same thing as this recipe, except I lined the bottom of my crockpot with raw bacon... about 5 pcs. I had an 8.5 lb roast and it took up the entire pot...not exaggerating! I salted the heck out of it with plain sea salt and then took whole peeled garlic cloves (you can buy these in a small tub at the grocery store!) and stabbed the roast all over with a paring knife and stuck one in each spot. Total of maybe 8 garlic cloves. I put it on high and cooked it for 8 or 9 hrs. I do want to try the liquid smoke, but I didn't have it on hand. But, it turned out AMAZING nonetheless. No water needed!! Do not add water!! It cooks in its own juices and my crockpot was FULL of the broth once it was finished cooking. If I had added juice it would have overflowed. After 8 hours it was falling apart. And my roast had a little bone in the middle. Then I took it all out and shredded it, couldn't find the garlic or bacon. It all just cooked together! Super simple.
I served it with a jar of BBQ sauce for people to put on if they wanted, but it is sooooo much better as it is.
