  • 8 Lbs Pot Roast
  • 3 Tbsp Lawry's season salt
  • 2 Tbsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/2 Cup BBQ sauce


  1. Begin by spicing the pot roast liberally on both sides. Be sure to take the pot roast out of the fridge for up to an hour before cooking. Add the pot roast to a pellet smoker on 275 degrees. Cook for approximately 3 hours. Using a thermometer check for doneness.

    Take off the smoker and cut in cubes. You can add a little more of the seasoned salt if you wish. Add the meat to a tinfoil container. Add in the BBQ sauce and mix well. Return the sauced meat to the smoker and cook for another 45 minutes.

    Remove from the smoker and let rest.

    Serve and enjoy!
