If you go into the search mode and type in slow cooker season you will get a previous thread with lots of recipes.
The full title was "tis the slow cooker season."
Hope you find what you want.
Also would be good to get some more.

Beef Daube Provencal:

2 teaspoons olive oil
12 garlic cloves, crushed
1 (2-pound) boneless chuck roast, trimmed and cut into 2-inch cubes
1 1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
1 cup red wine
2 cups chopped carrot
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
1/2 cup less-sodium beef broth
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
Dash of ground cloves
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 bay leaf
3 cups hot cooked medium egg noodles (about 4 cups uncooked noodles)
Chopped fresh thyme (optional)

Heat olive oil in a small Dutch oven over low heat. Add garlic to pan; cook for 5 minutes or until garlic is fragrant, stirring occasionally. Remove garlic with a slotted spoon; set aside. Increase heat to medium-high. Add beef to pan. Sprinkle beef with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Cook 5 minutes, browning on all sides. Remove beef from pan. Add wine to pan, and bring to a boil, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Add garlic, beef, remaining 1 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, carrot, and next 8 ingredients (through bay leaf) to pan; bring to a boil.

Place beef mixture in an electric slow cooker. Cover and cook on HIGH for 5 hours.

6 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup stew and 1/2 cup noodles)

Beef Stew:

a cup or so of barley in the bottom
a package of frozen "stew vegetables"
a package of stew beef, from the meat section of the grocery store
a package of fresh sliced mushrooms

Layer it in that order, sprinkling with some beef bouillion in between each layer (just a bit) and on top. Then fill crockpot with water until about 1" below top of mushrooms (so you can see it between the cracks). Cook on low all day long or on high for half the day.

That night, it is really tasty with a great broth; as leftovers, it is very thick and hearty.

I don't know about the bbq sauce and such but you could use turkey kilbasa. It is way lower in fat.
I have been using it and making oven fries or sourkraut or even cooking it in a foil packet with other veggies. It is really good depending on the brand you buy. John morell is my least favorite. Jennio is great.

Sorry I know this is about crock pots but thought the info might help.

Got this one from another site I belong to so I can't take credit but my familiy tried it last night and they loved it.
4 chicken breasts (no skin)
1 package low sodium taco seasoning
1 and 1/2 cups salsa
1 can reduced fat cream of anything soup (mushroom, celery, chicken)
1 container reduced fat sour cream
put chicken in crock pot. Sprinkle taco seasoning on top, mix salsa and soup together and pour over top. Cook in slow cooker approx. 6 to 8 hours. Turn off heat then stir in one to one and half cups reduced fat sour cream. Serve with brown rice or noodles. Only 157 cals per serving
I had lent out my crockpot and forgotten so I made mine in the oven in a casserole dish with it all wrapped in foil. I put it on 200 and let it slow cook in the over for 5 hours. The chicken was very tender and simply fell apart.

Wow, 9:45 nothing healthy about your recipe at all. I can't even begin to think of how many cals, fat and sugar this is loaded with.

Theres a website called, she has a lot of really good crock pot recipes on there. She created most of them for WW so they are all point friendly as well as low carb, fat and cals.

There can't be such a thing. I've never met a crock pot dinner that I've enjoyed. only 1/2 joking. Maybe I should try one of these because I've always heard how easy they are.

6:56, seriously? Wow, there are so many good meals you can make in your crockpot. Not all healthy no, but still very very good. How about sweet and sour meatballs, oh YUM! Or roast with carrots, potatoes, onions, mushrooms and marinara sauce. So good and basically any meat cooked in a crockpot just falls apart it's so tender!! I love my crockpot. I am a full time Manager and full time mom too so having my dinner cooking while I'm at work and ready to go (all I have to do is put it on a plate!) when I get home is a God send!

How do you make a pot roast in the crockpot? Just put it in with the meat, pot, carrots, onions and turn it on?

Yup, basically any cut of roast. Use either pre-cooked or canned cut potatoes, same with carrots (for some reason these don't cook as well as the meat!) slice some onion, put in seasonings and believe it or not add a jar of marinara sauce and 1/2 jar of water. It's delicious!
