A decent pot roast recipe

I need a good pot roast recipe. Ingredients, brands of those ingredients (if it's important), anything that will make my pot roast less dry and more flavorful. If you know of a good cut of meat that makes a good pot roast that isn't too greasy that would be great, too! My husband complaines that pot roast is too dry and too greasy (weird combo, I know).

I had the same problem for a while... Zeeny told me to buy a Chuck roast - and I've never had a dry roast since! I like to just sprinkle it with an envelope of lipton dry onion soup mix before I cover it with foil and put it in the oven (along with about a cup or so of water) It makes a super tasty gravy, too! Yummm... I think I'll buy a roast this week for next Sunday!

I really like this pot roast recipe from the television show "Good Eats." You brown the meat first for the flavor, then wrap it tightly with liquid at a low-and-slow braise. The connective tissue turns to gel and you get a yummy roast.
