My mom and dad are awesome cooks. Anytime I come over they know I want to eat lol. She swears that I can smell it from across the state. Here is one of her bbq recipes.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This easy Crock Pot dish is similar to a sloppy joe. Julie's concoction is better than any premade sauce or canned mix, though. It's a little bit sweet with a tang. After browning the meat on the stove, the slow cooker does all the work and the meat cooks down really nice and tender. This would be great to throw together for a crowd for a football game but I would double the recipe. It will disappear quickly!

Note: We gave this a stir about an hour into simmering so the sides wouldn't burn. The Test Kitchen
