1. In a large bowl, combine the diced onion, minced garlic, chopped chipotle peppers, ground cumin, dried oregano, smoked paprika, ground cloves, ground cinnamon, salt, and pepper.
2. Add the beef chuck roast chunks to the bowl and toss to coat the meat evenly with the spice mixture.

4. Pour the beef broth over the meat in the slow cooker and add the bay leaves.
5. Cover the slow cooker and cook the barbacoa on low heat for 6-8 hours, or until the meat is tender and easily shreds with a fork.
6. Once the barbacoa is cooked, remove the meat from the slow cooker and shred it using two forks.
7. Serve the shredded barbacoa in warm tortillas, garnished with fresh cilantro and lime wedges.
