I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this recipe, the mesquite marinade is really powerful. My house smelled like an outdoor smoker all day. But the roast turned out supper tender and was not too smokey. It really has the same flavor and taste as smoked brisket, which I love. Only change in ingredients is I added the full can of soft drink, which was regular Coke by the way. This made enough sauce to baste it occasionally.
1 (2 -3 lb) chuck roast
6 ounces cola
1 (1 1/16 ounce) packages mesquite marinade ( the kind that comes in an envelope like taco seasoning. I use McCormick or Adolph’s)
1/4 cup water
Place chuck roast in the crock pot and pour cola over the top of it.
Mix water with the mesquite marinade packet and pour over the top of the roast.
Cook 8 hours on low.
