I've fixed this BBQ Beef for more celebrations than I wish to count over the last 40-plus years.  The last time was this past weekend for my mother-in-law's 100th birthday family get together.
1 beef rump roast (4 lbs.)
1 tablespoon liquid smoke
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
Garlic salt, onion salt, and celery salt to taste
1 cup BBQ sauce of your choice
Place meat on heavy-duty foil in 9"x12" pan.  Pierce meat.  Sprinkle with liquid smoke, Worcestershire, and salts.  Bring up foil and seal.  Refrigerate and marinate 24 hours.  Place in 300 degree oven for 5 hours.  Pour BBQ sauce on.  Close foil and bake another 2 hours.  Slice meat thin against the grain.  Put liquid in a separate container and refrigerate all over night.  Skim solidified fat from liquid.  Pour sauce as needed over meat to keep it moist as it heats up either in the oven or the crock pot.  Serve on a bun with extra of your favorite BBQ sauce.
(Allow 1/3 pound for a generous serving.  For this occasion I fixed 20 pounds of meat adjusting the other ingredients accordingly.  Twenty pounds fills two large crock pots.)

We had a great celebration of Bob's mother's birthday. First a dinner and reunion in my sister-in-law and her husband's beautiful yard.  It was nice for the three remaining siblings to reunite.
Lots of nieces and nephews, grand kids, other family members and more food than we all needed!
Then we had a public reception at her assisted care facility with cake and punch.
"A good time was had by all!"

OH MY GOODNESS!!! She doesn't look like she should be 100. What a delightful celebration and wonderful way to honor her. Thank you for sharing your recipe too. I fix for large groups a lot, so it is wonderful to have more ideas of things to fix.
