How to Make It
  1. Over medium heat, fry the meat, onions and garlic until the meat is brown and the onions are tender. Be careful not to over-cook. Drain excess fat.
  2. In your slow cooker, combine the meat mixture, sweet peppers, molasses, beer, sliced up celery, ketchup, mustard, chili powder, vinegar and hot sauce.
  3. Close the lid and cook on low for 6 –8 hours. If time is against you, use the high setting for 3–4 hours.
  4. Spoon the meat over the bottom halves of the toasted buns. Add your preferred toppings then close the buns. Enjoy!
