Slow Cooker Barbecued Pulled Pork

There are probably as many recipes for slow cooker pulled pork as there are celebrity chefs…

And, this recipe for it is a cinch ~ easy, easy, thanks to the slow cooker. The pork cooks for hours in its penetrating smoky, slightly sweet, spicy sauce, until it’s falling-apart tender, and you can pull it into shreds with a fork. 

As a bonus, it fills your house with mouth-watering aromas ~ you will be drooling!

Why spend all day cooking when the slow cooker can cook this scrumptious dish for you, vastly cutting your kitchen time?

  1. My mouth is watering because I think I smell it. WOW..nice recipe.

  2. Pam, This recipe sounds great but we don't cook pulled pork at home anymore... All of our pulled pork comes from our neighbor Larry, aka. Big Dude. We are definitely spoiled! I hope that the snow season ends soon for you up there in the north country! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  3. Pam,
    Oh Yum! Your pulled pork looks amazing, and I can just imagine how good your kitchen smells.

  4. There are so many recipes that come from your part of the world with liquid smoke in them. I have never seen it for sale anywhere I have ever lived, and I have no idea what it tastes like. Presumably it gives a smoked flavour? Take care Diane

  5. I can always take another recipe for pulled pork! Since leaving Texas, we haven't had very much BBQ. I need to make my own! Thank you for sharing, Pam!

  6. Perfect use for a crock pot, and you can use this pork in SO many dishes!

  13. Pam, I agree...a Slow Cooker & Pulled Pork go hand and hand! I like adding a dollop of Fat Free Sour Cream before adding the top of the bun. Looks YUMMY!

Having passed the grain stalls they came to the fritanguerías – the fried stalls – where sweaty, plump women dropped thick pieces of fish into enormous frying pans. Laid out on the wooden trays that served as counters, the fillets of fried fish immediately cooled to take on an almost mineral appearance while thick slices of fried plantain – patacones – were heaped around them.
