I would make a dry rub out of the following:

Salt
Pepper
Chili Powder
Garlic Powder
Ground red pepper
Dry mustard

I would mix those up in equal proportions (with the possible exception of the salt. Depending on how much rub you use you might not want a ton of salt).

Rub a generous about into the meat. Wrap in plastic and park in the fridge for as long as you can afford to let the flavors penetrate the meat.

Thanks GB, unfortunately, I already put the roast in the crockpot when I realized that I didn't have the seasoning packet. OOPS!! LOL

In a pinch, onion soup mix works well.

Same here, thier. Lipton's dry onion/mushroom soup mix is a staple here for pinches. The Savory herb & garlic is good on chicken for cp dishes. The potatoes and veggies come out very tasty. If you have it, red wine (and Italian seasonings) or freshly brewed coffee enhances the flavor. I make little slits throughout the roast and insert garlic cloves.

When I make a pot roast, I always brown it well first. I add a small amt of liq.i.e. water or wine. I add whole or chopped/sliced onions and garlic. A TBS or so of Better than Bullion beef flavor. I add fresh herbs too as it gives a nice flavor i.e. oregano, margeram, basil, tarregon, etc. Depends what I have in the garden. I take out the meat when finished to add potatoes and carrots to cook but add the meat back to reheat. This is done in a large pan on the stove at very low heat not a slow cooker. You can adjust seasonings.

The last chuck roast we did I just used Montreal Steak seasoning. It's got a lot fo the things you would use separately. In addition onion and garlic are good too.
