I LOVE BBQ. Yes, I have yelled that at the top of my lungs before while running past a BBQ restaurant. Coming home to a crockpot full of homemade bbq style shredded meat…is amazing. There’s just something about shredded protein that makes it so much better. Add some sweet potato and you have yourself a perfect comfort meal.

Making the sauce at home keeps the junk out! It’s easy and a great way to get the delicious flavor with better quality ingredients. This recipe is so simple!
