Shredded beef over nachos, with salsa and sour cream on the side. The two bottles of Big Red are this recieps "secret" ingredient.

Seems like barbecue season isn’t just a season. It’s a celebration any day of the year. You pull out a pile of shredded beef for a gathering of friends where yeah, the food matters, but the laughs and company are really the stars of the show.

No lie, I am the master of my grills, and want to throw down with killer food for every occasion. But, I have learned that my friends aren’t dropping in for just the food. It’s unwinding, sharing some time, and company. It’s the things you can’t buy and if they can happen to be around a great spread of mouthwatering BBQ, then all the merrier.

That’s why I had to learn to scale it back sometimes. That slow smoking a pork shoulder for a Friday night card game wasn’t always the best solution. That a perfected brisket was always the answer to those perfect friend filled nights.

So, I started to scale it back sometimes. Gave myself a pass to pull out the easy recipes with a good selection of noshable food and a pop-the-tab and go bar lined up for impromptu gatherings.

Layers of red onions, scallions, beans, and cheese smother the shredded beef at the center of these nachos.

Yeah, I will always be the girl pitching a fire to roast lamb or curing salmon for a slow smoke. But some nights I cheat, and bring the BBQ in, so I can have a killer meal ready to go without missing a single hand of poker.

This Slow Cooker Big Red Shredded Beef is a perfect for quick nachos, as a filling for sliders, atop a baked potato, or even piled on a grilled hot dog. Pair it up with an ice cold Big Red pop for even more authentic Southern Barbecue flavor – no matter where the weather takes you.

I've got nachos, guac, sour cream and a bottle of big red. What else do you need for a party!

When you’re looking for pull-apart meat that doesn’t require your attention for hours, the slow cooker is the way to go. Check these recipes!
