Slow Cooker Southern Barbecue Pork on a Bun

Recipe by Hey Jude
READY IN: 20hrs




  • In a medium saucepan, over medium-high heat, combine ketchup, chili sauce, mustard, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, red pepper flakes and garlic.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, then let cool.
  • Rinse pork shoulder and pat dry, then place in a large glass bowl or resealable plastic bag; pour sauce over pork and marinate overnight in the fridge.
  • Remove roast from the marinade and place in the slow cooker; add 3/4 cup water to marinade, mix well and add to roast in slow cooker; cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours or on high for 4-6 hours (I cooked for 8 hours and mine was perfect), until meat is tender but not falling apart.
  • Remove meat from sauce and let it stand on a carving board for 10-15 minutes, then cut it into thin slices and keep warm.
  • To serve: place meat on one half of bun, add sauce and top with the other half of bun (kind of elementary, huh?).
