Indoor Barbecue Beef
   4 pounds beef chuck or shoulder roast
   1 teaspoon salt
   1 tablespoon chili powder
   1 cup barbecue sauce
   1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
   1/2 cup chicken broth or beer
   1/4 cup brown sugar
   1 tablespoon yellow mustard
   1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
   2 large cloves garlic, minced
   1 extra large onion, sliced

For Serving:
   White bread or hamburger buns

Additional Toppings (optional)
   Softened butter
   Bread and butter or sweet pickles
   Cole slaw
   Hot sauce

Rub beef all over with the salt and chili powder, until meat feels slightly tacky, and set aside.

In a bowl, combine the barbecue sauce, apple cider vinegar, and chicken broth, brown sugar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and garlic.

Place the sliced onion in the bottom of your slow cooker's crock or inner bowl and rest the beef on top of them. Pour the sauce mixture around (not over) the roast. Cover and cook on High to a temperature of 200 to 205 degrees(F), 4 to 6 hours.

Remove the roast from the slow cooker, and pull the meat apart using two forks. Discard any bones and large pieces of fat or cartilage that remain. Skim fat from sauce and return the shredded beef to the slow cooker. Stir to combine.

Serve on toasted hamburger buns, or buttered white bread, with toppings of your choice.
