Easy Slow Cooker BBQ


Southern pulled pork BBQ that is so easy to make! I have shared this Boston butt BBQ crockpot recipe with family, friends, and co-workers, and they have told me that this is amongst the best BBQ they have ever eaten. I use a North Carolina-style vinegar-based sauce when making this, but this is the fun part of the recipe because you can use any sauce you like, and it turns out great. The pulled pork makes good BBQ plates; it's good on sandwiches, too.
