BBQ Beef Sandwich with Slaw

We love barbecue.  Almost anything barbecued, smoked, or smothered in barbecue sauce is good to us.  Two summers ago we all traveled to Tennessee for a family reunion and got loads of barbecue and one of our favorite sandwiches was topped with slaw.

When I make barbecue in the crockpot I like to generously coat the meat with a dry rub first and add sauce after it's cooked.  I make a batch of this rub and keep it in the pantry all the time. You should try it!  I used this great recipe.

BBQ Beef Sandwich with Slaw

3 lb beef roast
bbq dry rub (2Tb-1/4 c. depending on how much you smother on there.  I used a LOT.)
1/2 c. water
Bottle of barbecue sauce for finishing and serving
Pickles (optional)

The Rub:
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. paprika
1 1/2 Tb black pepper
2 Tb granulated garlic
1 1/2 tsp salt

Mix together and keep in an air-tight container or ziploc baggie for up to a year.

Rinse and pat dry the roast and coat generously with the barbecue rub.  Put in a crockpot and add in water and cook on low 6-8 hours or until it falls apart when pulled with two forks.  If it doesn't pull apart, cook longer. Drain off the liquid and shred the beef and pour on barbecue sauce.  Don't over-do the sauce you want to just coat the beef and not over stir it or it will get mushy. 

Serve on toasted buns topped with coleslaw and extra bbq sauce and pickles on the side.
