V's Easy Pulled Pork Sammy's (Crock-Pot)

READY IN: 8hrs 5mins
SERVES: 6-12
YIELD: 12 sammys


  • 3
    lbs pork shoulder butt roast (Bone in or not, doesn't matter)
  • 1
    (21 ounce) bottle barbecue sauce (your favorite- I use Hunt's Original)
  • 0.5
    (18 ounce) bottle bottle hickory smoke flavored barbecue sauce, divided
  • 34
    cup water
  • 1
    teaspoon garlic pepper seasoning
  • 1
    teaspoon salt
  • 1
    teaspoon minced dried onion
  • 1
    teaspoon smoky paprika (Spanish)
  • 12
    sesame seed kaiser rolls


  • Make several slices half way down the roast.- cut roast in half to make for even cooking.
  • Season with garlic pepper and salt on one side, place fat side up in crockpot and season other side. Sprinkle with dried onions and paprika (Note: smoky paprika adds to the flavor without adding heat).
  • Mix 1/4 cup BBQ sauce and 3/4 cup water in measuring cup. Pour into crockpot beside the roast, not over it.
  • Set on low (8 hours).
  • One hour before, drain excess liquid and shred right in the crockpot, I remove fat at this point. Pour Remaining BBQ sauce over the shredded pork and continue to cook another 45 min - 1 hour.
  • On a clean surface, place open rolls on counter and add pork by heaping spoonfuls onto rolls. Place rolls inside bread bag and twist to close. Microwave for 1 minute. Leave the rolls inside the bag for a few minutes. This steams the rolls. Either serve immediately or wrap indivually and sneak into the football games like we do . LOL.
  • ENJOY!
