Seriously Simple Pulled Pork

Sometimes life gets in the way of cooking but I hate to settle, so I have a few favorites that I pull out for these occasions. Pulled pork is so easy and if you’ve got a crock pot, it is perfect for not heating up the kitchen in the summer.

BBQ Pulled Pork

1 Pork Roast (Boston Butt, Shoulder or Picnic) whichever you choose, make sure it will fit in your crock pot
1 Bottle Weber All Natural BBQ Sauce*
3 Medium Onions, Sliced
Cooking spray (optional)

  • If your crock pot has a rack, spray with cooking spray to help with cleanup.
  • Trim some of the fat from the roast if desired.  I like to keep some of the fat on while cooking.
  • Place sliced onions in a layer on the bottom of your crock pot.
  • Place roast, fat side up, in pan and pour half the BBQ sauce over the top.
  • Cover and cook on high for 6 hours or low for 8.
  • When done, remove roast and place on cutting board. Let it rest for at least 10 minutes.
  • After resting, use two forks to pull apart the meat into shreds. Yes, your arms will get tired, just pour a drink and get into it, it is worth it!
  • Place shredded pork into a large bowl.  Pour some of the drippings & onions from the crockpot over the shreds until just moist, but not soupy.
  • You can serve this on rolls with the remaining BBQ sauce as a condiment or serve over rice.

* Why Weber? This stuff is good.  I mean really good.  It is all natural, no high fructose corn syrup and sticks to the meat! It comes in several flavors from bold to sweet  to spicy.  I will rarely agree that a shelf product is as good as homemade but it is that good.
