Bourbon-Mango Pulled Pork
Spicy, smoky, and sweet. This is the perfect addition to that crusty roll you've been trying to figure out a sandwich filling for!

Made it for a party. Some of the comments I heard besides "delicious" were "This is definately a two plater" I did make my own version. After slow cooking 10 pounds for 14 hours, I
I just made this recipe today and it is definitely a "keeper"! My husband even said it is better than his mother's - and he's never said that before! I followed the recipe exactly except that I used a 7 pound pork shoulder (instead of 4 pounds)and the ratio of pork to sauce was perfect. (If I had used only a 4-lb. pork I'm sure it would have been swimming in sauce.) I cooked the shoulder for 6-1/2 hours, then 'pulled' it, then cooked it for another hour and a half. The mango sweetens it a bit and the chipolte chile pepper gives it a nice kick! Absolutely fabulous - thanks for sharing!
OMG!OMG! I have been on a roll- every recipe ive tried has been great lately. Ths was no exception. This looked unusual but delish so I decided to try it. It WAS unusual but in a very good way. I ended up using more BBQ sauce than called for but thats cuz I like em saucy. Actually, I used 2 different BBQ sauces. I used 2 regular bottles of Kraft bbq sauce, and I also used part of a raspberry-chipolte bbq sauce I had in the pantry. WOW. Iam sure it would have been fine without the touch of raspberry, but MAN, it made it so good and slightly sweet. Still spicy though. I cant wait to make this again, I am running out of good things to say about it. Just give it a try, you will not be sorry!!
Oh my oh my, this is without a doubt the best pulled pork I have ever had, bar none! Anyone that makes this for the first time and tastes the juice before it's pored off, it is super spicy, but IT DOES NOT remain in the meat, just a subtle spicy zing with sweet BQ sauce. I use honey BQ sauce, it's great in this. I serve mine on a Kaiser roll with the classic spears of dill pickle. TO DIE FOR! I'm not much of a drinker and had no bourbon in the house so I went down to my local liquor store and bought a little airline size bottle of bourbon for a buck fifty and it was just perfect. If you're on the fence with this one, get off! you'll love it, I promise.
This was my first time making pulled pork and this was a nice, easy, and very delicious introduction. I did listen to other reviewers and made the following changes: I mixed the salt, pepper and chipotle together and then rubbed the mix on the meat. After cooking, I trimmed the fat. I added only half of the sauce to the meat, and then added a bit more it to suit my preference for how saucy the pork should be. The extra sauce on the side was a nice addition. One note to those new to making this type of dish: if you can't shred the pork with two forks, it needs to cook more. When it's done, it should only take a few minutes to break it all up. Happy eating!
This was very good. I had an 8 pound piece of meat so of course I doubled everything. I thought the amount of barbeque sauce was too much so I added a total of 36 ounces instead of the 48 ounces that would be required if the recipe was doubled. The meat was very tender and I am glad I did not add the full amount of barbeque sauce it would have masked the chipotle flavor and mangos. I have never been able to find chipotle chili powder so I pureed about half a can of chipotles in adobo with the mangos. If I made it again I would probably add more mangos and chipotle chilis and less barbeque sauce!
A few comments and questions to answer here: I prefer chipotle because it adds a smoky flavor I prefer in my pulled pork. When you are using a crock pot instead of a low, slow bbq, you have to catch that flavor somewhere. I use whatever bbq sauce is on sale--but only fairly plain jane flavors. Using some crazy honey-hickory-papaya sauce is just overkill to me. Very glad you all like this recipe. I honed it over several years until I was satisfied.
mm mmm mmm I adapted to what I had on hand but used this as my base! I had a bourbon "marinade" rub on hand and only one mango...but a gob of mango salsa from Costco did the trick for the rest. I also had no honey (what?!) so I used Agave necter. My BBQ sauce of choice was 16 oz Jack Daniels Honey and I used hot mexican chilli powder and Mrs. Dash's chipoltle seasoning. This was NOT too hot, but definately flavorful. I know I totally played outside the lines here, but I think I captured the essence of the sauce. SO GOOD. BTW I kept the au Ju from the pork and will make a nice pasole or something! The 5th star was for EASY. I served this with "roasted" butternut squash and red potatoes that I ALSO did in the crock pot!! GET OUT!! Yes, a crock pot!! cut 'em, coat 'em in olive oil, your favorite italian seasonings & Kosher salt...heat 'em 4 hrs on high stirring occaisionally til done.
All the liquid had boiled off long before I checked on mine after 7 hours on low. I also only needed to cook it an additional 30 minutes instead of 1-2 hours after making the sauce. It still turned out delicious, but next time I will reduce the cooking time in the first step.
The BBQ sauce (Sweet Baby Ray's honey chipotle) completely overwhelmed the other flavors. It was good, but I'm not sure it would have tasted any different had we skipped the mango, chipotle powder, etc. and just soaked pork in BBQ sauce.
This was a fantastic recipe, easy to make and lasts a looooong time. (Maybe that's because it's only my boyfriend and I) I of course made a few changes to the recipe. I could not find any ripe mangoes on such short notice, so I cheated. I bought a can of mangoes and poured the juice from the can into the slow cooker instead. I also did not measure the water but poured it in after the ingredients till it covered the pork. I estimate that was about an extra cup. Also like many others I just used regular chili powder. Happy cooking and good luck!
WOW! This is an awesome recipe. I cooked an 8 pound shoulder but did not double the sauce recipe. I had plenty! This is a keeper!
This recipe is really good if you leave it sit overnight in the fridge, it seems to mellow out the strong bourbon flavor. I wouldn't have believed it was the same recipe if I didn't know better! The only change I would make next time is I would use peaches in place of the mangos just because of the high price of mangos and I don't think the flavor was that prominent. Will make this one again, the family really enjoyed..thank you
Good pulled pork recipe. The mango adds a wonderful flavor. I made this twice. The first time I followed the recipe to the letter and the second time I added brown suger and teriyaki sauce. Both ways are good.
Delicious! I made this exactly as the recipe suggested and the taste and texture was perfect. Even better the next day.
This is AMAZING! So easy, so yummy. I could go on and on about it. The first time I made this I used pork loin, it came out OK but not anywhere near as good as the second time I made it, using the shoulder/butt cut. My second time I doubled the recipe and froze the leftovers, they are getting better and better!! Try this you won't be disappointed.
Really delicious. Only change I made was to add some garlic powder to the crock pot in the beginning... This is in my box to make again!
The Mango was the missing ingredient from all other pulled pork recipes I have tried.
I've made this recipe three times now, and it's great! Besides the fact that it's just fun to tell your friends you've made "Bourbon-Mango Pulled Pork" and watch them salivate, it's a very easy recipe that I've haven't been able to mess up yet! I've made it with pork shoulders from 4 to 5.5 lbs, different brands of BBQ sauce (though my favorite so far is "NOH Hawaiian Bar-B-Q Sauce". Delicious and no HFCS!), I've slow cooked the pork on low from 5-8 hours and did the second half on high from 1-3 hours. It always turns out delicious. Last night the mangos I used turned out to be a little out of season (sour) so I added a couple extra Tbls each of honey and brown sugar and it came out great. Thanks for the terrific recipe!
The flavor wasn't as strong as I would have liked and the sauce was a bit watery. Unusual flavor that is a nice change.
I made this for an office pot luck and it was definitely the hit of the lunch. The biggest modification I made was substitute the chipotle powder with real chiles. I used 1/2 of a small can of chipotle chiles in adobo sauce in the crock pot (coursely chopped). I used the other half when I pureed the mangos for the sauce. I also doubled the honey and bourbon.
Excellent flavor! I used a 6 lb roast & it was still very saucy. Could not find chipotle chili powder so used reg chili powder & 1 bottle of chipotle bbq + 1 bottle of reg Sweet Baby Rays. We all liked it-I had to stop my son from making a fourth, yes-fourth!, sandwich. The great thing is, it made a ton so I have some in the freezer now for a couple more meals! Thank you!
SERIOUSLY. Best Pulled Pork I have ever made...and I have tried many versions. I needed it for Sunday early afternoon so cooked the pork Friday/Friday night and shredded it. Put it in the fridge and on Saturday made the "dressing". Mixed it in, cold, and left it until Sunday am and heated it for the 2 hours. I find, sometimes, that too much "heating" causes it to cake and carmelize so was trying to aviod that. It was unbelievable. I have printed this recipe for 7 people at my party. Nice work! I used Sweet Baby Rays original for my BBQ sauce base.
This was very good! Make sure you like spicy if you're gonna add the full amount of chipotle powder to the sauce. I think next time I'm gonna go w/ 1/2 the amount. I also agree that 2 bottles of bbq sauce is waaaay too much...I used 1 bottle and still had a good bit left. This had great flavor and was a nice change from the usual. I served this w/ cole slaw on top and that was tasty! I would make this again! Thanks for sharing. :)
Why does this come up under a search for kosher main dishes?
Excellent. I made for my family and kept all the spiced as written and we all loved it, even though it was a little spicy. I'm planning to make it for a crowd, so will reduce the pepper.
I Loved it! I just used a little sample bottle or bourbon. I didn't taste it at all and I didn't miss it. I recommend this, it's juicy, sweet, and spicy. I used a hearty toasted wheat bun and it stood up well to the rather messy filling. *edit: I've made this numerous times and the only time it wasn't great was when I slacked on getting the pork into the slow cooker and was forced to cook it on high. It was too dry and not worth the mess and bother. Definitely get your butt in gear and start it early or rethink your dinner menu!
Love this recipe! I make mine as is but I substitute pineapple for the mango. I find that mango gets lost in the sauce where as the pineapple balances the smokiness of the dish a little better. I also serve it with a green apple coleslaw! Definitely a family favourite.
This wasn't bad, but i was a little dissappointed because i couldn't taste the mango/burbon flavor i was hoping for, so i ended up adding my own touches, such as brown sugar, liquid smoke, chili powder, to make it more to my liking.
Works equally well with country ribs. Incredibly tender and the sauce was perfection. Other than changing the cut of meat all else was the same. Beautiful presentation over couscous with pine nuts and asparagus bundles as a side.
This was easy and yummy! My husband had me send some to his parents he loved it soo much! Looks like I will be making this again and again. I didn't use the chipotle chile powder and it was still yummy! This wasn't a messy pulled pork either!
Great pulled pork ~ I followed the recipe exactly other than using vegetable stock in place of the water. Even my kids loved this recipe, will certainly be making this again...
i love this recipe ill make it again, i doubled the bourbon.
This is crazy delicious. I used pork loin instead of shoulder and molasses instead of honey. Other than that no changes. Even the cooking broth is tasty! I'm tempted to use it with ramen noodles! But the finished product, with the mango/barbecue/fine Kentucky bourbon we have, is just amazing. Thank you RuggerDucky!
I wish I could give this 100 stars....it's THAT GOOD!!! Time consuming .... but well worth it!
Too much of many things... Sweet, spicy and saucy that resulted in a dish no one wanted seconds of. The flavour combination seemed spot-on, but it didn't suit our tastes at all. Only slight change was an additional shot of whiskey.
I love this pulled pork. I used old Crow borubon which is cheap and taste great in it. The only things I changed was to the honey to one teaspoon not two. Also the last time it cooks I cooked it at medium since on high it burnt the bottom. Simple changes
Simple and easy. Do not think the mango pit added anything though. I just pureed some and mixed in for flavor. Delicious!!!
Made this while I was in China and really missing non-Chinese BBQ. Because of my location, I couldn't find a few of the ingredients. I used Chinese vinegar in the liquid and tossed in a quartered onion and a head of crushed garlic. I also added 1/2 cup of bourbon to the cooking liquid along with two cups of chicken broth, instead of water. Instead of chipotle peppers, I used some tiny Chinese peppers that I found in the veggie market and chopped them up really tiny and added them to the liquid as the pork cooked for a bit of spice. For the sauce I made a honey bbq sauce and added the mango chunks, bourbon and regular chile powder in a blender, then simmered it for about 10 minutes and added it to the pulled pork, minus the liquid, mango pits and onion. I didn't leave them together in the slow cooker for 1-2 hours...everything was already cooked. Just until the sauce is basically absorbed.
Delicious! I did decrease the bbq sauce as others mentioned...but I could have used a bit more actually...I love pulled pork with a lot of sauce. A great combo of sweet, smokey and spicy. Thanks for sharing!
Was delicious! My boyfriend loved it and told his whole family how good it was so thank you, I wasnt cooking at home so I bought all the stuff only to find no slow cooker was available to me. i cooked the meat for 6 hours at 275. Turned out so good, just like a slow cooker would have done it to my pleasant surprise! Also had chili powder so i used a smoky bbq sauce to make up for the lack of chipotle.
Good, but not great. Too sweet for my taste and I like sweet stuff. I will make this again but will eliminate the honey and reduce the amount of sauce to one bottle while adding more chipotle powder.
6 stars- This is the absolute best pulled pork you will EVER try. My boyfriend made this and can be described as nothing less that perfect. He couldn't find chipotle powder but he added two serrano chiles instead, and it was not too spice sooooo good. He also added two jiggers of Bourbon which seemed to me the perfect amount, anything less and you would not get the essence of the bourbon. A MUST TRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This recipe is excellent. I've got it simmer now, for diner tonite. I made a few simple changes, just because of what I had on hand. Firstly, I used regular chili powder, just as others have said. Also, I don't drink bourbon, so I used tequilla instead. Seems to have added an interesting flavor of its very own. Thirdly, I made my own bbq sauce, so I blended up the mango directly in my bbq sauce while it was cooking. And lastly, instead of pork roast, I used boneless pork ribs. I see a lot of people saying they're having too much sauce. My comment to that would be, are you using boneless pork. The bone DOES carry weight, and means there's less meat to absorb the sauce. I actually ended up making a little bit extra sauce just because there WAS no bone waste due to my use of boneless ribs. I am quite pleased with this recipe and will be making it again, many times. I may even experiment a bit and give it a few personalized changes. Thanks for such a great addition to my recipe book!
This was great! Easy to make. The hardest part was waiting for it to be ready!
Wow, what a great recipe. The flavor was amazing. I used honey BBQ sauce and regular BBQ sauce and regular chili powder instead of chipotle and it turned out really well. Everyone asked for seconds! Serving it again tonight with cornbread!
absolutely amazing recipe!!!Not only did my hard to please other half say he loved it and wanted it again, he share with his friend at work who has raved about it since! Super yummy...
These were awesome! I couldn't find the chipotle powder so I used some in a can. Just a warning, they pack a lot of heat. But everyone loved them. Would definitely make again.
Ok, i think the meat was better with out all the BBQ sauce...i would give the pork 5 stars w/out the BBQ sauce!
wow, this was exceptional-- although I made a few slight changes due to what I had on hand-- to my dismay I only had about 1 t chipolte pepper in the cupboard but had a 1/2 a can in adobo sauce in the fridge. I added about 1/3 c mango nectar to the cooking liquid as I was using frozen mango from Trader Joes, added a sprinkle of smoked spanish paprika to my 6 1/2 lb pork butt to add to the smokiness of the chipolte. I used Sweet Baby Rays Chipolte and honey BBQ sauce and some cheap kraft hickory smoke sauce, I was impressed with the final product. Did not cook for the 1-2 hours at the end, felt it did not need that-- did bout 45 minutes on low and it was just fine. All in all used about 18oz BBQ sauce, 24 oz would have been too much, but served extra on the side for those that wanted more sauce.
I dont know why I bothered to try a different pulled pork recipe.. I usually use the 'bbq pork 2 ways' from this site as a base to work off of, and always get fantastic reviews (from southerners who've had tons of bbq in their lives) This sounded neat with the mango, so I followed to recipe exactly.. and it was TERRIBLE. the mango ended up separating from the rest of the mixture and just looked gross and the taste was just odd to me. The boyfriend still ate some for lunch and insisted he liked it.. but I think he was just being nice..
so delicious and easy! I added a little more heat with some cayenne and hot sauce...fabulous!
Really good!! I make pulled pork in the crock pot a lot but I've always used regular BBQ sauce with it. The mango really added a good flavor! The BBQ sauce almost over-powers the mango flavor though (I used Sweet Baby Ray's), next time I'll add less.
Wow this was fantastic--even tho I didn't have mangos and subbed peaches. Wish I would have thought of the frozen oh well. Will certainly make again with the mangos. My family raved and raved about it. Delicious.
I used 50% more mango puree and 50% less BBQ sauce and it turned out great! My favorite pulled pork recipe to date.
As ande2994 pointed out already, this recipe just tastes like whatever BBQ sauce you use. Anticipating this, I only used half of the BBQ sauce suggested. I added a third mango, more honey, and more bourbon. Still, the BBQ sauce is pretty dominant. Not sure why this recipe warranted a video. It's just cook pork, dump sauce on it. All other labor and flavor wasted.
MMM!! Great recipe!! The version of this recipe on FindGreatRecipes.Net is ALOT better though.
Absolutely incredible! Used the bourbon whiskey barbecue sauce from allrecipes.com for the sauce, and it was to die for! We froze the leftover pulled pork and used it for bourbon mango pulled pork soft tacos (sharp cheddar, pulled pork, shredded red cabbage, avocado slices, cilantro, and dip in cilantro sour cream) and it was by far the best meal of the year!
Awesome! Very very good. And pretty easy. I mistakenly added the BBQ sauce to the mango mixture immediately but it still worked well. I served with fried okra and cheesey hashbrown casserole.
This was great - being from Australia I have no idea where to get chipotle chile powder so just used chilli instead. Friends and family raved about it!!
The spicy, smokey, and sweet combination of this recipe is awesome!! This made more barbecue sauce than we needed but I'm looking forward to putting this sauce on chicken too.
I used this recipe as inspiration for the pulled pork I made for a friend's wedding. It was a hit with the 150 guests! I used a rub of paprika, chili powder, thyme, salt and pepper on the pork in the fridge overnight before cooking it. I cooked it in the oven for about 8 hours at very low temp. We pulled the pork the night before the wedding and made the sauce and warmed everything through the morning of. It was worth all the prep work!
Love it! I've made this multiple times, and its now becoming requested. I don't believe an substitutions are necessary. This recipe is great!
Really good. I used cracked pepper and it gave it a kick. Definitely one I will make again-Great for a superbowl party!
The best pulled pork I have ever eaten - make it as often as possible.
This is very good. Watch the chipotle if you are using a spicy barbecue sauce (I was). This calls for a LOT of sauce, so unless you like your pork *really* swimming in it, you'll want to cut back to 1 bottle of bbq sauce - which will also jack the mango flavor up quite a bit. I'll definitely make this again with those modifications. Thanks!
This is so good! I used honey chipotle bbq sauce. Husband loved this!
Really Good! Followed as written, next time will use a loin cut....shoulder was a bit fatty for our taste.
My family and I love this recipe. After looking for a different kind of pulled pork recipe, this was perfect. I've got many favorites but I got bored. This hit the spot. I did forget the salt, I just noticed, but this is great. Thx for sharing RuggerDucky. Outstanding! If you're a BBQ junky like me, you and your family will just love it.
I made this recipe with fresh peaches, a sweet BBQ rub, and a pork butt roast instead of the mangos, salt/pepper and shoulder roast. I like to use what I have on hand, so I am a consummate substitution cook in the kitchen. This was great. Highly recommend for a casual dinner.
This is my first review (since it's the first recipe I've made without additions/substitutions), and it was GREAT. I made it for a party we hosted last night, and it disappeared fast. So many compliments. I also made a relish with fresh mango, red onion, lime juice, jalapenos, and cilantro to accompany the pork. Very good, and very simple to prepare.
I made this for the first time tonight and it was fabulous!! I read a lot of the reviews and followed what a lot of others wrote....I used a 5 pound pork shoulder and did not have ripe fresh mangos and my local grocery store only had canned ones. I put the juice from the can in with the water and balsamic vinegar and cooked it for 6.5 hours on low in a crock pot. I only used 12 oz of bbq sauce and pureed both cans of mangos. I added a touch of brown sugar for sweetness as well. I only cooked the pork for an additional 30 minutes after putting the sauce on it and only used half of the sauce and saved the rest for later. Definitely a keeper!!!
This recipe is amazing. I slow cooked it for 8 hours. I used a whiskey smokey bbq sauce. So good I will be making it again
Wow, this was amazing! I am going to use this recipe again this weekend to make Pulled Pork Sliders for a BBQ.
Absolutely fantastic! A bunch of us made different pulled pork recipes at work for a bbq, and this was the absolute favorite! I used a travel-size Wild Turkey for the bourbon. A friend of mine has never like pulled pork and he swears I'm the best cook in the world after tasting this!
This is a great start recipe and I followed it almost exactly. The reason for only 3 stars is bottled barbeque sauce is just yuck. I highly suggest making your own sauce and using that to mix with the mango mixture. I make my own BBQ sauce (both ketchup and mustard base) and have only tried this with the ketchup base sauce. I've made this twice so far and the second time I ran low on Balsamic vinegar so used half Balsamic and half White Wine vinegar and it was still really good. This second time, I also added a bunch of chopped red onion to the pork while cooking which turned out to be a delicious addition as well.
Everyone who has had this said it was amazing. Clean pot every time
Although I did modify a bit (more Bourbon & only 1 BBQ sauce) this was fabulous! I can't wait to make this again.
I only give it 4 stars because I've had better BBQ... OUT. This the best BBQ I've ever eaten in anybodies home. I fixed it EXACTLY like the recipe called for. Then I put some butter on a hoagie bun fried the inside on a pan and enjoyed.
Outstanding! I got lots of compliments today. It goes great on a toasted bun with a creamy slaw or on a tortilia with a little sour cream, black bean salsa. shredded monteray jack and a tangy slaw.I cooked a 6.5 lb shoulder overninght in a slow cooker about 7.5 hours, came out fine. Try it, you'll like it!
This turned out really good and I followed the recipe exactly. We had so much left over! I think it could have fed 8 people!
this is a great recipe only thing I recommend is 1 12oz bottle of bbq sauce
I made this for a family dinner. I don't know what I did wrong, but my pork would not shred. At all. We ended up having sliced pork sandwiches instead of pulled pork. The flavor was ok, but honestly after all that effort, I could have thrown a bucket of Lloyd's bbq in front of them and they would have never known.
This was good. I thought it was pretty simple to put toghether and did not take me a lot of time to fuss over! My husband LOVED this a lot!! I did cut the black pepper down and added more mango to my reduction, but that is my personal choice. Thanks for a great recipe.
Amazing!!! Served this for a pot luck dinner it was a big hit!!
Made this for a pot luck and was enjoyed by everyone. One word of caution, when you pull the pork make it pretty big strings as it will break down further during the final warming phase from the stirring. If you shred it too small (or just right) it will all turn into mush during that time. That was the mistake I made the first time with it. It tasted great but it looked horrible. Much better the second time.
was an absolute favorite here.
Wow this recipe is amazing and so versatile. I changed the honey to brown sugar and used a pork loin and it was so amazing. I also topped it with avocado and mango pico di gio Oh my gosh this was a hit.
This is the most awesome pulled pork I have made. I followed the recipe to the T and have made it twice with rave reviews. I gave the recipe to a friend as well and she loved it! We use honey BBQ sauce and it turns out great.
Fabulous recipe!! This is now my go to pulled pork recipe.
I made this recipe last week. It was absolutely delicious. I followed the recipe exactly except I cooked it for about 12 hours. (I had an eight pound, bone in, Boston Butt). Next time I will purchase a boneless piece. For my family I would not change a thing but if your family isn't into hot and spicy I'd cut down on the pepper a bit. Will make this again and again. Have not had a better pulled pork sandwich.
okay folks this was good, didn't have the chipolte powder, but chili powder worked find, otherwise made exact..... fab... need to share this
The Mango in the bbq sauce really adds a unique texture!
There are no words to truly describe how incredibly good this stuff is. The sweet spicy tartness is perfect. I could eat this stuff all day. Safeway makes these wonderful crusty kaiser rolls - we put it on those and wowzer!! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.
I didn't have pork shoulder, I had a pork loin roast in the freezer which was a little too dry, even after being in the slow cooker. I liked it, but the sauce was a little too sweet for my tastes so I probably will not make again.
I used bone -in chicken breast (we don't eat pork)and cooked about 31/2 hours, then added some mushrooms to the pulled meat and homemade apple-bourbon bbq sauce. Then stuffed the result in red bell peppers and baked. AWESOME! Instant hit in our house. Well worth the time it took to make.
OMG! This is such a great recipe. I brought some to work and everyone loved it! So did my family. Definately a keeper. Great for potlucks or larger get togthers.
This was excellent. The mango BBQ sauce made such a great flavor to the pulled pork. I highly recommend this recipe.
Absolutely fabulous! LOVED it! I used Vancouver Island sea salt as I did not have kosher salt. Big amount for a single person but I froze some for later. YAY for later!!!
