Quick Barbeque Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Jump to Recipe

Sometimes it feels like there’s not enough time in the day (or week) to get everything done, which can make meal planning difficult when you’re balancing a busy schedule. This recipe is a favorite that my uncle has made for many family gatherings and is loved by the whole family. It’s also a godsend for those crazy weeks when you know you’ll end up getting takeout if you don’t plan ahead. With only six ingredients and 15 minutes to prepare in the morning in the crock pot, you know dinner is taken care of. It also makes the house smell so amazing when you walk in after a long day at work, school, or whatever activities you’re managing that day. In our house, we love to use the leftovers for different meals such as loaded BBQ pork fries and coleslaw pork tacos as it is incredibly versatile. I’ll be sure to share those recipes in the weeks to come!

This recipe calls for a 8-9 lb pork butt, which is a lot to fit in the slow cooker unless you have a 7 quart or larger. I recommend cutting the roast in half if needed to make it fit, which is what I did for my 6 quart slow cooker. Be sure to grease the crock pot sleeve with cooking spray beforehand. If there is any excess fat on the roast, trim before placing it in the slow cooker. You can opt for a bone-in or boneless pork butt; I personally chose boneless for this recipe.


Mix together the dry ingredients, the barbeque and chicken seasoning in a large bowl. While McCormick’s Slow Cooker seasonings mixes are recommended, I’ll often substitute it with other chicken seasoning and barbeque seasoning if it’s out of stock at the grocery store.

Once the seasonings are well blended, stir in the ketchup and apple cider vinegar. Pour over the pork roast in the crock pot until thoroughly coated. No need to add water!

Place the slow cooker lid on to cover and cook on low for 8 hours on LOW, or 4 hours on HIGH. The pulled pork will fall apart when it’s finished cooking. Once finished, remove the pork from the crock pot and shred in a separate bowl. Remove any bones if a bone-in pork butt was used. Feel free to add in some of the barbeque juices from the crock pot back into the meat. Serve on hamburger buns, over hot dogs, or in a lettuce wrap as a low-carb option! You can store in the freezer for up to three months to thaw for quick and easy meal prep.
