Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Barbecue

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Barbecue

Ready in 14 hours

Great make ahead dinner.

"I rubbed the roast, put in fridge over night, then seared in a fry pan to seal in juices. I added one cup broth and several good shakes of my favorite hot sauce to the crock pot before cooking. I then cooled it in the fridge again over night and removed the hard fats then shredded the meat, added the juices from the meat and the BBQ sauce, then reheated in the crock pot. This was FANTASTIC. A great hit at the picnic. Thank you for a great recipie!"

I've served this at fundraisers before and it has always been a huge hit. Try it with Jack Daniels whiskey, added half an hour before it's done, it smooths everything out quite a bit.

I use a pork tenderloin because it's more tender than a roast. This is a fav in my house!

Changed it a little. Cooked the pork in the beef broth and BBQ mixture then removed and added a little liquid as needed.

Awesome! Best recipe I've tried on this site! I did add a little apple cider vinegar though

This was really good. However, liquid content was exaggerated.

Fair and not one of my favorites

Delicious! I had a 7.5 LB bone-in pork butt. Turned out great. After 10 hours I had about 4 cups liquid left. I took out 3 cups, leaving one, and added 3 cups Sweet Baby Rays. Would make again!

Everyone loves this but I do not add broth. Add brown sugar/apple cider when start cooking. Always easy. Cook with bone and fat then remove as shredding. So good!
