Your Slow-Cooker is the Secret to Great Barbecue

Properly barbecuing meat takes time, attention, preparation, and dedication. To cook a barbecue feast you need to set aside at least a day to be at home, making sure your barbecue is burning at a low and consistent temperature, so that the meat cooks and tenderizes perfectly. However, you no longer have to hover over your charcoal and wood-chip-filled grill for 12 hours at a time: Copy our cheat’s method to make tasty, moist, juicy, flavor-packed barbecue, entirely in your slow-cooker.
