Crock Pot Pulled Pork BBQ (Eastern Nc Style)

READY IN: 9hrs 10mins
Recipe by LexingtonMom

Everybody has a favorite type of barbecue. Eastern NC BBQ has a pure salty savoryness without any ketchup base. The following recipe is awesome served on large sandwich buns with potato chips. And it's easy--a great recipe to set in the crock pot and come home to an almost-finished meal. For cost savings, I often buy a large pork roast when it goes on sale and just cut in in two halves; use one for the recipe. Pick a nice lean cut; not a Boston butt. Even better as a leftover!!

This was FANTASTIC. To sum it up: KING'S. I have been living in Georgia for 10 years, and there is a totally different way of preparing BBQ down here. I did realize that I used teaspoons instead of TABLEspoons, and I drained the juice (which I'm not sure if I was supposed to do or not), & I used a Boston Butt (this was a plan B recipe). LOL: it ended up tasting like my favorite BBQ spot. Thank you!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place roast in crock pot. Brush with BBQ sauce.
  2. Cook on low setting for 8 to 10 hours.
  3. Just before serving, remove any fat then use a fork to shred all the meat.
  4. Stir together all remaining ingredients (I just mix in my measuring cup), and pour over pork. Toss pork in sauce.
  5. Scoop onto sandwich with slotted spoon (to avoid soggy buns).
