Smoky Chipotle Pot Roast

I mentioned a few posts back in my Brownie Pudding dessert post for Father’s Day that in my opinion most Dad’s like hearty home style meals. Even more, they love BBQ. I found a way to combine these tastes into a smoky pot roast. This recipe is perfect for Dad’s who like a little kick in their food, such as with spicy chili. This Father’s Day make Dad Smokey Chipotle Pot Roast. Be warned that this recipe is HOT!
