Slow Cooker Beef Barbecue

This recipe was in American Profile, a magazine that comes in a free weekly paper thrown in my neighborhood. I thought it sounded easy and am always looking for recipes that cook themselves! It's not bad for a crock pot meal and a cheap cut of meat. i would prepare this again and actually want to try it with a pork roast. I served it on toasted whole wheat buns.

Slow Cooker Beef Barbecue

1 (2 - to 2 1/2 lb) boneless chuck roast
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1 large onion, chopped
1 medium celery stalk, chopped
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp. cider vinegar
1 Tbsp. liquid smoke
1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Sprinkle roast with garlic salt. Place in bottom of greased 3 1/2 to 4 quart slow cooker. Top with onion and celery.
Combine brown sugar, ketchup, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar and liquid smoke in a small bowl. Pour over meat. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. Remove meat and place on cutting board.
Ladle 1/4 cup of liquid into a small bowl. Add flour and whisk until smooth. Stir into sauce in slow cooker. Shred beef with a fork and return to slow cooker. Cook on high for 30 minutes. Serve on buns.
