CROCK POT PULLED PORK BBQ

This Crock Pot Pulled Pork BBQ recipe has been my go-to recipe for years. I recently just created an INSTANT POT PULLED PORK version based on this one. It’s just so good and flavorful. It doesn’t take a lot of ingredients. You can even pop it all into the slow cooker the night before so it’s ready for you the next day!

HOW DO I MAKE A HOMEMADE PORK RUB? 

I have a delicious homemade pork rub recipe below. Just mix it all up and rub it well into the pork shoulder.

Pork Rub Recipe:
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon mustard powder
2 teaspoons salt
3 teaspoons brown sugar

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
pork shoulder roast (or boneless loin)
Dr. Pepper
hickory liquid smoke
pork rub seasoning (store bought or homemade)
BBQ saucepork shoulder roast, Dr. Pepper, hickory liquid smoke, pork rub seasoning, BBQ sauce

HOW TO MAKE CROCK POT PULLED PORK BBQ:

Rinse the pork shoulder and pat dry. Rub pork rub all over pork shoulder. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and place in your slow cooker.

Pour in can of cola and liquid smoke, all around the sides of the pork. Cook on low setting for 8 to 10 hours, until the pork is very tender. Remove the pork from the slow cooker and discard the remaining liquid. Remove the bone and shred the pork using a couple of forks, removing any excess fat.shredding pulled pork with two forks
Now at this point you can place on hamburger buns and let everyone spread BBQ sauce on their own sandwiches (which my family prefers). Or, you can place the meat back in the slow cooker along with the bottle of barbecue sauce and continue to cook for another 20-30 minutes until the pork is hot again. You can also leave your shredded pork in your Crock Pot and leave it on the keep warm setting until ready to eat.cooked pulled pork in a slow cooker
To me, it ain’t finished until I add some cole slaw on top. Here I made my SOUTHERN COLE SLAW. But instead of slicing the cabbage mixture, I chopped it up fine in my food processor. Serve it up on a soft hamburger bun.Crock Pot Pulled Pork BBQ on a bun topped with Cole slaw
