  1. Place pork in a slow cooker and season to taste with garlic powder, poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper. Add quartered onion, apple, and 3 celery stalks. Pour chicken broth into slow cooker.
  2. Cook on Low until very tender, about 8 hours. Transfer pork to a large platter and discard juice and vegetables. Shred pork with a fork and return to the slow cooker.
  3. Prepare barbecue sauce while pork is cooking. Melt butter in a large saucepan or small Dutch oven over medium heat; cook and stir 2 cups celery and 1 1/2 cups onion until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add ketchup, water, vinegar, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, liquid smoke, and 1 tablespoon garlic powder; mix. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thickened, about 10 minutes. Pour barbecue sauce over shredded pork.
  4. Continue cooking pork on Low heat until flavors combine, about 2 hours.

Made this according to directions and it was excellent! Made slaw and had BBQ sliders. Excellent ! Instead of throwing the broth away, I froze it for future use.

Very good. Family loved it. I used a 2 1/2 lb. Pork loin and didn't have any celery, but followed the rest of the recipe as written. Served with buttered buns and seasoned Curly Fries.

This was so yummy! I cooked a 6.5 lb. pork loin roast for 12 hours in the slow cooker exactly as the recipe specifies. It was fall-apart tender. Didn't make bbq sauce, although it sounds real...

Best pulled pork, but I substituted the homemade bbq sauce with sweet baby rays.

I didn't use all of the sauce, but it was very good!

I love the pulled pork recipe for the crockpot but I use Scott's Savory Barbeque Sauce (here on Allrecipes) instead of the one given in this recipe.

Served it to about 40 people and it had rave reviews! I added about 1/3 C HP sauce in place of 1/3 C of ketchup, and a few other personal preferences like more fresh garlic and added no celery. ...

I was disappointed. The roast had no BBQ flavor without sauce. I did use a good commercial sauce, but in the south, the meat is primary. I will not make this again.
