Two Great Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Recipes

Slow cooker bbq is a sure to please recipe that fills your house with the pleasing smell of bbq and fills your belly with the delicious taste of the south. Using a slow cooker to make this bbq is an easy, sure-fire way to give the flavor of a slow cooked port roast made over an open fire.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen: spray inside of slow cooker for easy cleanup.


I’ve revised this recipe a bit since I purchased a new slow cooker:

Put a three pound boneless pork loin roast with 1 cup water in slow cooker. Add a small chopped onion. Cook on high for 4 hours or so or on low 6-8. What you are looking for is meat that is fork tender.  Drain some of the liquid, leaving some to moisten meat.

Shred with fork. Add 1/2 of a 28oz bottle bbq sauce, more or less to your taste, 2 tablespoons Worcestershire and 1 tablespoon hot sauce or to taste. If you have your favorite BBQ seasoning, sprinkle some of that in, too. Cook on low for 1 hour. Can be frozen.

This is a rather messy, but oh-so-delicious sandwich. Serve with a side of slaw and you’ll get rave reviews! You could also bake this, covered, in a slow (275 degrees) oven for several hours, or until fork tender. You may need to add more sauce after roasting, since this is a dry heat.
3 pounds boneless pork loin roast
1-1/2 cups favorite bbq sauce
1 small onion, chopped
Couple dashes garlic powder or ¼ teaspoon fresh chopped garlic
Extra barbecue sauce as needed

Trim fat and cut meat in half. Put into crockpot. Pour barbecue sauce on, add onion and garlic powder and cook on low for 8-10 hours. Remove meat and pull into shreds, using two forks. Add sauce from the crockpot to the meat, going to taste on amount. Serve with more sauce for passing. Serves 8-12.

The national pork board also has a site with great information – recipes and info about pork.

    can the 2nd recipe (#2) be made ahead and frozen also? I need to make it for approx. 40 people for a rehearsal dinner.

  2. Rita Heikenfeld

    Yes, the second recipe can be frozen successfully. I’ve made it with trimmed fresh pork shoulder, too and oh my gosh is it ever good. Now I will tell everyone don’t be stingy with the sauce. I think the best BBQ is a bit messy to eat! I’ll post a photo of the BBQ soon.

    One more tip – feel free to add a bit of BBQ dry seasoning to the pork. I’ve tried it with Kansas BBQ rub and Texas.
    I just sprinkled some on the pork before I cooked it and added a little more to the BBQ after it was cooked in the sauce.

    Thanks for the tips; I’ll be making it this weekend to freeze. Where do you get the Kansas or Texas BBQ Rubs?
    Or do you make them yourself? I only saw Memphis Rub at Kroger. And what is the difference? Is one hotter/more spicy? Or one more sweet?

  4. Rita Heikenfeld

    The Kansas is more mild than Texas. I get mine at Jungle Jims here in Cinti. The Memphis rub you mentioned would be good, too. It’s a bit less spicy than the Texas, but really good.

    Let me know which one you use and like.
