Main Dish, Pork, Slow Cooker

Slow Cooker Smoky BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches (and CouponLynx magazine winner!)

Print Friendly

This simple dish is so easy to throw together, but tastes like something you would order from a local BBQ joint. The meat seriously falls apart when it’s done cooking- no shredding required. :)
This is definitely my favorite BBQ pork sandwich of all time.
Slow Cooker Smoky BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches
Recipe adapted from The Gaines Gang
3-4 pound pork shoulder butt roast (can have bone-in)
3 Tablespoons paprika
1 1/2 Tablespoons salt
1 1/2 Tablespoons pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dry mustard
1/3 cup liquid smoke
1 (16-20 oz) bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce
Spray the inside of slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray (or use a slow cooker liner). Combine paprika, salt, pepper, garlic powder, mustard and liquid smoke in a small bowl. Rub all over the roast, covering all sides. (Optional: poke your roast with a large fork a couple of times to let the flavors really soak in). Place lid on slow cooker and bake on low for 8-10 hours (or high 5-6 hours). Shred meat when finished and add bottle of BBQ sauce. Serve on buns and enjoy! We love this with a side of potato salad or pasta salad.

    This sounds amazing!!! I’m not sure pulled pork is very common here in Aussie land, but I seem to see it a hell of a lot on American sites/blogs. MUST try it some time :-D

    What a great recipe! Thanks for sharing it! My husband’s comment was, “the only bad thing about it was that there wasn’t enough left over!”

    So…you don’t put any other liquid in for the while 8-hour cooking time? I always thought slow cookers needed liquid to cook properly.

      No other liquid, just what the recipe calls for. Liquid smoke and the other ingredients. Watch it carefully, could be done in seven hours if your roast is a little smaller.

    Hello ! Ilove your receipes.I live in Panama, and i don´t know what is Liquid smoke ? Can you helpme out ? thanks a lot ! blessings

      Liquid smoke is a concentrated seasoning used to give meat a smoky or woody taste. It is found on the store shelves by the BBQ sauce. It just adds a little smoky taste to your food. Just a little goes a long way.

    Hi Six Sisters

    My name is Ken McBroom. I am an outdoor writer and have a deadline for my cooking column in a small print publication. The problem is the images I took of my pulled pork that I prepared for the Hoosier Outdoor Writers conference was lost in cyberspace and I found your great image of pulled pork sandwich and would love to use it in my article. You can leave your Six Sisters Stuff on the image for credit. Please feel free to contact me if this is a possibility.

    Looks delicious in the picture, but unfortunately I am not much of a pork eater! :( anybody know if this recipe will work with chicken? If so, would any instructions need to change? Would love to try it!
