My husband has a smoker and loves to fix BBQ, but sometimes I just like preparing it in the crock-pot.  It is easier which means we can have it more often.  What makes my husbands’ BBQ so delicious is that he has a great rub, and he cooks the BBQ low and slow over many hours.  This is why using the crock-pot for Pulled Pork turns out so delicious.  I also use a rub and cook it on low in the crock-pot for 10 hours.  The meat will just fall apart.  If it does not fall apart, it has not cooked long enough. Pulled pork is called pulled pork because you can easily pull it apart.  You do not need to cut it up. After you pull it apart, just add your favorite BBQ sauce and serve. 

Use Your Pulled Pork To Make BBQ Sandwiches

If you are making BBQ sandwiches, try adding some coleslaw to top the BBQ.  The creaminess of the coleslaw with the tangy BBQ makes a great combination. I am originally from lower Alabama and grew up eating a lot of BBQ.  Someone who eats real smoked BBQ maybe hesitant to try BBQ in the crock-pot.  If you want BBQ but do not have time to smoke it, try this recipe.  You may find yourself fixing BBQ a whole lot more often with this Best Crock Pot BBQ Pulled Pork. You may want to try this Best Crock Pot BBQ Pulled Pork on a baked potato or a salad which is also really delicious.

Crock-Pot BBQ Pulled Pork

A pork butt, shoulder, loses about 35 to 40 percent of it’s weight after cooking it. If you use 4 ounces of cooked meat per sandwich which is four sandwiches per pound, you will need 6 pounds of cooked pork to get 24 sandwiches. This would be a 10-pound uncooked pork butt or shoulder. Be mindful that a lot of times people use 6 to 8 ounces per sandwich.
