Barbecued Pulled Pork Sandwiches

My brother and his two oldest kids arrive last night to visit for a few days. Because they were driving in, I wasn't sure what time they would arrive, so I decided to make Barbecued Pulled pork sandwiches in the slow cooker. I've tried several pulled pork recipes, this is the one I like the most so far.

2 1/2 lbs. pork roast
1 - 14 oz. bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce
1 tsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 medium onion, chopped
8 hamburger buns or hard rolls

Place the pork roast in slow cooker. Cover; cook on Low 10 to 12 hours (or on High for 5 to 6 hours). Remove the pork roast from the stoneware, and pull the meat into shredded pieces. Pour out any liquid in the stoneware, and combine the pork with the remaining ingredients in the slow cooker. Cook on High for 2 hours. Serve the barbecue pork on hamburger buns or hard rolls.


  1. I just bought pork and want to make bbq pork... when you put it in the slow cooker did you add anything? Or do you add everything after you shred it?

  2. Sorry for the late reply on this. The only thing I did to the meat was I sprinkled it with a meat tenderizer. Then add everything after you shred it.
