Growing up, my Mom used to make barbecued beef in the crock pot and it always tasted so good. It's definitely comfort food for me. After I got out on my own, I was determined to make barbecue beef just like hers, so I tried lots of recipes and finally came up with one of my own. I was so pleased! I called her to tell her and she laughed. She had always just used a bottle of barbecue sauce! We still laugh about that and now I've had to give her my recipe!

Whisk the cornstarch into the sauce; stir the mixture back into the slow cooker. Add the shredded beef; stir. Serve hot on the whole-wheat buns.

This got great reviews from everyone that tried it. I substituted an old beef roast for the brisket and also whisked the cornstarch right into the crockpot at the end (not sure how much I used -- I just kept dumping in a little at a time 'til I had a nice thick consistency). This made a lot that way and was quite tasty.

Excellent choice. I modified this recipe in the following manner. I marinated the meet for 3 days, then smoked it for 12 hours between 200-220. I wrapped meet in tinfoil for an hour and kept it in warming oven while I made the sauce. From the fat drippings I caramelized one large onion, then added chicken broth, and the remaining marinade and boiled that down to a gravy. Note, I didn't use corn starch because it would have reduced the flavor of the marinade.

This made some really great barbecue. Great tangy smokey flavor. Nice blend of flavors and it was a hit with my family. Both my husband and son ate seconds. I used a chuck roast, hickory liquid smoke and substituted dried minced onion and some onion powder for the real stuff. The only change I would make is to thicken the sauce more as it needed more body, maybe more cornstarch? I loved that this used a homemade sauce and not some bottled stuff, thanks Adrienne, we really liked this barbecue! This is a keeper.
