  • First, start by seasoning the pork with brown sugar, salt, ground black pepper, granulated garlic, onion powder, smoked paprika, chili powder, ground cayenne pepper and ground cumin.
  • Chop the onion and mince the garlic cloves.
  • Pour the bbq sauceliquid smoke, chicken broth, apple cider vinegar, onion and garlic into the slow cooker.
  • Place the pork inside the crockpot and cover the lid.
  • Cook on high for 5 hours or low for 10 hours. The pork is ready once it has reached an internal temperature of at least 205 degrees F.
  • Remove the pork from the crockpot, transfer to a plate and shred with 2 forks. It should easily come apart. If the meat is tough, place it back in the crockpot to finish cooking.
  • Use a ladle to scoop out about 1/3 cup of the juices inside the crockpot. Pour these juices over the shredded pork. Drain the remaining juices from the slow cooker.
  • Place the shredded pork back into the crockpot and add the remaining bbq sauce. Mix well to coat the pork completely.
  • Serve on toasted brioche buns and top with homemade Creamy Coleslaw.


  • It’s important to use good quality BBQ sauce. I use this BBQ sauce for many of my recipes and everyone loves it. Alternatively, you can make your own homemade BBQ sauce.
  • Cook the pork until it reaches an internal temperature of at least 205 degrees F. Use a kitchen thermometer to measure the temperature inside the pork. This is the best temperature for pulled pork because the meat will be tender and easy to shred.
  • Begin checking on your pork for doneness about 30-45 minutes before the recommended cooking time. Every slow cooker is different, therefore cooking times may vary.
  • I love using toasted brioche buns for this BBQ pulled pork recipe. However, feel free to use sesame seed buns or any other bun you prefer.
