"'When I take this beef barbecue to a gathering, someone always asks for the recipe."


1 (2 1/2- to 3-pound) boneless chuck roast
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1 large onion, chopped
1 medium celery stalk, chopped
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon liquid smoke
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
12 hamburger buns, warmed


  1. Sprinkle chuck roast with garlic salt. Place roast in the bottom of a greased 31/2- to 4-quart slow cooker. Top with onion and celery.
  2. Combine brown sugar, ketchup, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar and liquid smoke in a small bowl. Pour over meat. Cover and cook on low 8 hours, or until beef is tender. Remove meat from slow cooker and place on a cutting board.
