Slow Cooker Barbecue Pulled Pork is one of the easiest slow cooker pork recipes for summer potlucks and more. Simply made with salt, pepper, garlic, water, and barbecue sauce, it's a tasty dish that you can leave to cook all day. You'll love how easy and flavorful this pulled pork slow cooker recipe is, and how handy it comes in when you're in the mood for pulled pork sandwiches or tacos. This recipe only uses 5 ingredients, which means you can spend less time preparing and more time eating and enjoying with your family.



Tips: Some readers have mentioned that a little extra barbecue sauce made this slow cooker pulled pork even better! Serve with coleslaw for a little taste of the south. If you really want to impress your guests, toast the buns.

Serves: 8

Ingredients
  • 5 to 6 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed with the side of a knife
  • 3 to 4 pounds pork shoulder roast (sometimes called Boston butt roast)
  • salt and fresh ground pepper
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup prepared barbeque sauce
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar

Instructions
  1. Lightly spray interior of the slow cooker with cooking spray. Lay the garlic cloves in the bottom and place the pork on top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and pour the water around the sides.
     
  2. Cook on LOW for 6 hours, (or on LOW for 3 hours and then on HIGH for 1 hour) until pork is cooked through and is easy to shred with a fork.
     
  3. Remove the pork from the slow cooker and set on a cutting board. Pour all of the juices in the pot into a large measuring cup and place in the freezer for 30 minutes so that the fat rises to the top and can be skimmed off.  While the juices cool, use two forks to shred the meat and return it to the cooker.
     
  4. Skim the juices, discarding the fat and return 2 cups to the cooker, add the barbeque sauce and vinegar and stir to mix well. Cook on LOW for 1 additional hour to blend the flavors.
     
  5. Serve pork on hamburger buns, garnished with pickle slices if desired.

     
Editor's Notes
  • This cut of meat needs slow cooking, so always begin on low and use the low setting for at least most of the time allotted. 
     
  • Barbeque sauces have their regional fans and there are many choices. We like a smoky, slightly sweet sauce and then we add cider vinegar to give it a burst of “tangy flavor," but you may use the type you like best.

This reader totally agrees with extra, extra sauce! This really is an easy recipe even for a person who can't cook. When you serve this at your picnic potluck and no one will know how much time you didn't spend on it. My mouth is watering just looking at those sammiches!

I love trying new pulled pork recipes! They are so delicious and filling. Will add to the dinner rotation this week!

Pulled pork is delicious during any season, and I love being able to use my slow cooker for it. I think I, too, would increase the amount of BBQ sauce in the recipe by about half again as much. I like to serve pulled pork on egg buns, and toasting them on the grill for a few minutes gives the whole sandwich that picnic flavor my family loves.

I agree that it could used a bit more sauce, but that's an easy fix. This would go great with a side of coleslaw, or even throw some slaw on the sandwich to make it "Carolina-style"-- yum!!

This was good for a simple pulled pork recipe, but I think it could have used a lot more sauce and perhaps more seasoning.

Made this for company and it was GREAT!!!!! I am not a cook and this recipe made me look great too. Served it with coleslaw on top.
