  • Massage spice rub into the pork roast. Wrap tightly in a double layer of plastic wrap; refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

  • Unwrap the roast and place in the bottom of a lined slow cooker. Add water and liquid smoke. Cover and cook on Low until pork is fork-tender, 8 to 10 hours.

  • Transfer roast to a cutting board; discard liquid in the cooker. "Pull" by tearing meat into thin shreds with 2 forks or your fingers. Discard fat.

  • Place shredded meat back in the slow cooker; toss with 1 cup barbecue sauce, and heat on Low until hot, 30 to 60 minutes. Serve with remaining barbecue sauce.

Cook's Note:

For stronger flavor, the roast can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.

I used a natural hickory liquid smoke and a honey barbecue sauce for a family reunion and it went over fantastically. Read More

I was nervous to try because it looked pretty spicy but was so glad I tried it! I had frozen the pork roast, so 3 days before I needed to cook it, I thawed in fridge 1 day then added spice rub to sit for 2 more days in fridge. On the third day, I added it to slow cooker for 9 hours; it was fall off the bone tender and very flavorful. Can't wait for the leftovers! Read More

I bought a Pork butt and got home and told my wife about this recipe. She stated she really didn’t care for pulled pork. Just after I pulled it apart, she tasted it and to my surprise she loved it. 5 stars. Read More
