When I lived in NC, I fell in love with their vinegar based BBQ! After moving back to GA, I missed it, and tried my hand at making it in my crock pot. I remove all visible fat from the boneless pork loin and crock until fork tender and shred it into the pork juices -- no added BBQ sauce is necessary during crocking process! After crocking, the cooked pork DOES NOT have a vinegary taste!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice boneless pork loin into 1-inch thick chops for quicker cooking.
  2. Sprinkle pork (or chops) with garlic salt.
  3. Pour red wine vinegar over chops.
  4. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes and liquid smoke.
  5. Crock for 6-7 hours on LOW, or until tender ~ pork should shred easily with a fork into the pork juices.
  6. Remove excess juices, leaving just enough so the pork remains moist! Discard juices, or freeze to use as a soup base!
  7. BBQ sauce is not necessary during crocking process ~ USE AS A GARNISH ONLY, after shredding!.
  8. If desired, serve on buttered toasted hamburger buns, with BBQ Sauce, or A-1 sauce, and dill pickle slices.
