Slow Cooker Smoky BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches Recipe

This simple crock pot pulled pork recipe is so easy to throw together but tastes like something you would order from a BBQ restaurant. The bbq pulled pork seriously falls apart when it's done cooking.

  • Slow Cooker
  • Non-stick Cooking Spray


  • 3 Tablespoons paprika
  • Tablespoons salt
  • Tablespoons pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • cup liquid smoke
  • 4 pounds pork shoulder butt roast (or bone in)
  • 18 ounces BBQ Sauce 1 bottle
  • 12 Hamburger Buns


  • 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.


  • We love this with a side of potato salad or pasta salad.
