Smoking meats makes the cheapest cuts of meats so flavorful. Just set it and let it go.Jump to Recipe
With a little bit of planning, you can have wonderful dinner ideas or in this case, a fabulous sandwich – a Smoked Pot Roast Sandwich. Smoking imparts so much flavor and tenderizes the cheapest cuts of meats. The only question is what kind of flavored wood should you choose.
I have been using a pellet smoker for my smoking of late. I like that you can set a temperature like you do with your oven. I smoked my pot roast for 4 hours, and then, put it in the oven for another 2 hours. Finishing the pot roast in the oven just saves some pellets. Plenty of smoke had been imparted to the meat. I covered the pan with tin foil which created a steaming effect to further tenderize the meat.
The final step to creating the meat is cooking it in some barbeque sauce on the stovetop. This step is only 10 or 15 minutes. What makes the sandwich though is my COLE SLAW. Alternatively, if you prefer, bread and butter pickles are awesome too.

Smoked Pot Roast Sandwich
Smoking a cheap cut of meat turns a simple meal into one with so much flavor. These Smoked Pot Roast Sandwich is complimented with a creamy cole slaw.
- 6 Lbs Pot roast
- 1 Tbsp Black pepper "Bull Shit" Rub
- 1 Tbsp Mesquite BBQ Rub

Begin by spicing the pot roast. Add to the smoker on 225 degrees and cook for 4 hours. Pull off the smoker and place in a broiling pan covered tightly with tin foil and place in a 350 degree oven for two hours.
Finish the beef by pulling it with 2 forks. It will break right apart. Add to a big pot and smother with your favorite bbq sauce. Cook on low heat for 15 minutes.
To serve, place as much meat as you can fit on the bottom bun. Top with creamy cole slaw or bread and butter pickles. Enjoy!
