Season the roast with salt and pepper. Add oil to a pan over medium high heat. Sear both sides of roast for about 3 minutes on each side
Add water to a bowl. Add all the roast ingredients to the bowl and mix.
Add roast to the slow cooker. Pour the water with the spices over the roast.
Cook on high for about 3.5 hours to 4 hours. Check the roast at about 3.5 hours. Don't overcook the roast or it will get tough.
Remove roast from the slow cooker then shred it with two forks. Add the roast back into the slow cooker then add the BBQ sauce and seasonings. Mix well serve on your favorite bread.
I always purchase brioche bread from Aldi's supermarket. Also, as I noted in the instructions, make sure you don't overcook the roast. Check the roast at about 6 hours. This recipe is pretty forgiving so you can use your favorite bbq sauce and omit the bbq seasoning if you like.
