Pulled Pork With BBQ Sauce in the Crockpot

Total Time
8hrs 45mins
Prep 15 mins
Cook 8 hrs 30 mins

Adapted from several I found on the internet. I used a pork tri-tip roast. I'm sure it would be great with about 3 lbs of beef, chicken, other pork cuts, etc. I cooked this overnight, shredded it and let it cool some in the morning, put it in the fridge and reheated it for dinner.


  1. Combine all ingredients except the meat in a saucepan. Cook on medium-high, stirring frequently, until it just starts to boil. Taste and adjust spices if needed.
  2. Put roast in center of crockpot.
  3. Pour hot sauce over roast.
  4. Cook on low 8 hours.
  5. Using 2 forks, shred meat and mix with sauce.
  6. Let sit for at least 30 minutes.
  7. Serve on buns or baked potatoes.

After hunting for the perfect pulled pork recipe, I stopped here. It's just about perfect. I did add just a few of my own preferences. I salt, peppered, and browned the meat in a large skillet along with one big chopped onion. In the sauce I added one big teaspoon of red chili flakes. That's it. Sweet, tangy, and slightly hot is perfect for me.
