Omit the WATER! Instead use broth cider soda- anything but water. Water pulls out all of the flavor and juices out of meat. (Just think which is better boiled chicken or grilled chicken?) I still gave this 4 stars because the spice mixture is great but as a rule if you want flavor you should not cook meat in water. Another tip is to sear all sides of the meat before placing it in the crock pot which will seal in the juices and add that great classic darkened BBQ caramelized delicious outer layer which adds texture and quality to your meat. Otherwise you risk getting a mushy canned meat texture.
Yummy really yummy. I left my 7lb pork shoulder in the crock pot on low for almost 12 hours. It feel apart with just one touch and was full of flavor even before I put the bbq sauce in. I served melt in your mouth sandwiches for Super bowl that everyone raved about. Thank you for the recipe.
I’m giving this five stars, but I tweaked it. I don’t follow recipes exactly! I did not use the white sugar & up’d the brown sugar. I rarely measure things! Seasonings were up’d too. I cooked this in Apple Juice instead of water, per another reviewer. I filled my slow cooker with Apple juice until it was 3/4 of the way up the 4.5 lb. roast. Fat side up and packed in Brown Sugar! I wanted it to melt into the meat! I chopped a sweet onion & put that in the bottom of the pot. That was a nice addition. My Crock Pot runs HOT so I cooked it on high for one hour and 7 + more hours on low. I also used a slow cooker liner for easier clean up! I didn’t use the whole jar of BBQ Sauce. It was more like a good cup? I added some of the juice from the slow cooker to moisten the whole thing. Probably the best Pulled Pork I’ve ever made! Thanks for the great base of a recipe!
Really loved it! I did tweak it a little but followed pretty close. Scored a pork loin then added rub all over wrapped it in plastic wrap and let it sit in the frig for 24 hours then browned it on all sides in a pan on the stove before placing in the crock pot covered with sparkling apple cider to cook on high 6 hours. Shredded but put barbecue sauce on the side because it tasted so good straight out of the crock pot. Thank you so much for the recipe! It is a keeper! Will be my go to recipe every New Years and then some.
I made this for Super Bowl Sunday last weekend. I seasoned and left in the fridge overnight. Other reviews suggested using apple juice instead of water - so that's what I did. It just fell apart and was so tender. After a couple hours with just the BBQ sauce I did need to add some of the cooking liquid back in so make sure you save some like the directions say.: ) Very good recipe - thanks for sharing!!
Second time making this... I allso omitted white sugar and upped the brown sugar. I used I.C.Light beer (only about 8 oz). Next time I'll use a heavier beer. This pork pulled apart so easily and got eaten very quickly. I used 2 2 1/2 lb boneless roasts (5 lb total). I added about 12 oz bbq sauce and served the rest on the side along with a big bowl of apple cider vinegar slaw. Ah-maxing! Thanks Kay Kay!
