The Spruce

Long, moist cooking at a low temperature in the slow cooker is a great way to transform inexpensive cuts of meat, such as pork butt, beef brisket, short ribs, ground beef, and chicken thighs, into succulent, saucy, flavorful dishes. When you add jarred or homemade barbecue sauce, and a little liquid smoke, you can get pretty close to traditional pit-grilled barbecue flavor, without ever leaving the comfort of your home kitchen. In fact, these slow cooker barbecue recipes allow you to assemble ingredients in the morning and leave them to cook all day, so you can come home to a tasty dinner. Enjoy!
