Overnight BBQ Beef Sandwiches

“I found this recipe on allrecipes, and wanted to get it into my cookbook because my family LOVED it! I used a roast instead of the brisket, and it fell apart, it was so tender. The sauce can be a little thin, so more cornstarch may be needed. I also ran the sauce through the blender while I was shredding the beef, because my family doesn't like chunky onions.”
