I made this last friday so when my Son and his roommates came home late, it would be ready. They devoured it! I made 4 lbs of beef!!!! There is enough left for dinner tonight.
2 lb beef chuck roast
1 bottle barbeque sauce
1 can cola
2 tsp. garlic salt
Cook on low for 7-9 hours. Remove roast and pull apart. Return to slow cooker. Serve on hamburger buns with juice. You will need a knife and a fork for this delicious barbeque!

This is the most wonderful sounding recipe from my friend Kendra at Haden News. I make salmon cakes but mine look wimpy and boring next to these! I'm using good canned salmon to cut down on the work. Click HERE for the recipe. Thanks, Kendra, I always love to visit you!
I'm not cooking Bobby, so bring home TAKEOUT Chinese! Don't forget the duck sauce.
