Crock Pot "smoked" Beef Roast or Brisket

My mom tried this recipe a month or so ago and raved over it. My sister, Karen made it last week and I tried it on Sunday. It was very good and my beef roast DID taste like brisket! I looked at all the reviews that were posted on and used much less salt than the recipe called for. My roast was tiny--2#. I was a bit afraid about the foil in the crockpot, but it was excellent!

Crock Pot "smoked" Beef Roast or Brisket
By KellyinNC on

2 -4 lbs beef roast or 2 -4 lbs beef brisket
2 tablespoons liquid smoke
2 tablespoons fresh coarse ground black pepper
2 tablespoons kosher salt (use much less....I used 2 tsp)
2 minced fresh garlic cloves

Trim beef of any large extra fat. A little is good for flavor.
Place the roast in the middle of a large piece of aluminum foil. Rub beef all over with all of the spices. Sprinkle liquid smoke over beef and rap tightly in foil. Make sure it's completely wrapped. DO NOT ADD ANY LIQUID TO THE CROCKPOT!

Place in crock pot and cook on low setting for 8-10 hrs (10 for a larger cut of beef).

Unwrap beef and serve with the "smoker" juices in the crock pot or with your favorite barbecue sauce.
