This recipe came from a military wife almost 30 years ago (thanks Elise) and it couldn't be much easier. Simply combine all ingredients and cook for 3 hours, then shred the meat. Serve it on buns of your choice...and then sit back and take in the compliments! Everyone loves this recipe, and I've used it at fund raising events with great success! Excellent with potato salad or coleslaw.

This is a good basic recipe, but I agreed with others that it had too much vinegar, and not enough flavor. I cooked mine in the slow cooker on low about 9 hours and that was good. I added brown sugar instead of white, garlic, liquid smoke, ketchup and dijon mustard. That made it better.

WOW!!! Couldn't ask for more: quick and easy to prepare, throw it all in the crockpot, ready when returning from work at the end of the day, house smells wonderful, a totally deeeeeeelicious meal, and after dinner my teen son printed out the recipe and taped it to the refrigerator door with a note which read: DON'T LOSE THIS RECIPE!!! (Great with potato salad or coleslaw and a sliver of watermelon.)

THIS RECIPE IS A WINNER!!! First I tried this recipe on the family. Concensus=SUPERB! (Even the kids loved it.) Then it was my featured dish at a huge family reunion, and though I'd made 175% as much as I thought I'd need, I found that I had to quickly thaw out what I'd frozen up the day before in order to satisfy the crowd. It was that good!! HINT: I found that serving is best with a leaf of lettuce on the bottom bun, which keeps the juices from softening the bun too much. Otherwise, don't change a thing. This recipes freezes well also. And incidentally, I didn't stand a chance of keeping this recipe a secret.
