  • Slow Cooker
  • Small Mixing Bowl
  • Large Mixing Bowl


  • 3 Tablespoons paprika
  • Tablespoons salt
  • Tablespoons pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 4 pound pork shoulder butt roast boneless or bone in
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 18 ounces BBQ Sauce 1 bottle
  • 12 hamburger buns


  • 5 cups shredded coleslaw mix (from the produce section)
  • 1 cup shredded purple cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup light mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar (more or less depending on how sweet you prefer)
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  • Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, mix together seasonings (paprika, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and dry mustard) and rub on the outside of the pork roast. Place pork roast in slow cooker.
  • Pour beef broth around the bottom of the slow cooker (don't pour it directly on the roast or it will rinse off all the seasonings).
  • Cook on low heat for 8-10 hours (or high heat for 5-6, but I feel like the pork is more tender if you cook it on low).
  • Shred the meat with 2 forks and pour in a bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce. Mix all together and serve on a bun with coleslaw.
  • To make the coleslaw, combine coleslaw, cabbage and carrots in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, make dressing by combining mayonnaise, vinegar, celery seed, sugar, salt and pepper. Toss dressing into cabbage mixture and let chill until ready to serve.
