Using two forks, pull meat apart into shreds. Tote meat in slow cooker. Tote broccoli and mayonnaise dressing in an insulated container with ice packs.

To serve, in a small bowl, combine shredded broccoli and 1/4 cup of the mayonnaise dressing. Spread bottoms of the buns with the remaining mayonnaise dressing. Place meat mixture on bottoms of buns. Top with shredded broccoli mixture; replace tops of buns. Makes 16 sandwiches.
