Barbecue Sloppy Joes

Do you want some fun piled on a bun?  Do you want a mamwich please?  Sorry to get that jingle stuck in your head, but I couldn't resist.  Here's the truth though, I'm not a huge mamwich fan.  I'm not even a huge traditional tomato-ey sloppy joe fan.  But these BBQ sandwiches--definitely a fan.  We just came back from a wonderful beach vacation where we did absolutely nothing besides play with the little one, read, and chase baby girl around and schlepp beach gear back and forth relax.  
Unfortunately, it took us a few days to get back into the groove of real life.  Enter the easiest homemade Mamwich ever!  First brown some ground beef.
Then, drain your beef and put into a slow cooker with some ketchup, brown sugar, and garlic powder.  Cook on low for 5-6 hours or on high for 2-3.  Diet Dr. Pepper makes good hydration for this strenuous cooking.  
 Serve on a nice toasty bun (with some pepper jack cheese if you're me).
