Slow Cooker Pork BBQ


Yesterday, as I contemplated what my first blog post would be, I could smell my pork shoulder roast cooking away in the slow cooker.  This is one of my favorite go-to recipes that takes very little effort.  I typically buy a pork roast from my friends over at PTB Farm a couple of times a month.  Their pork is delicious and the owners are one of my favorites to talk with at our farmer’s market.

Slow Cooker Pork BBQ


  • 3-4 lb pork should roast
  • 1/3 cup water
  • Spices:  salt, pepper, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, chili powder
  • BBQ Sauce (I use Bone Suckin’ Sauce made here in NC)


  1. Cover pork roast with spices listed.  I never measure these out, but just simply give a good coating on all sides.
  2. Rub the spices into the meat.
  3. Place roast in your slow cooker.
  4. Pour water into the bottom of slow cooker.
  5. Set slow cooker to low for 8 to 8.5 hours (the meat should fall apart when done).
  6. Transfer meat to a bowl and shred using two forks.
  7. Add however much BBQ sauce you want.
  8. Enjoy!
