- Preparation – 15 Mins
- Cook: 5 hours
- Total: 5 hrs 15 mins
- 1 pork shoulder roast
- ½ cup chicken broth
- ½ cup chicken broth
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- 1 cup barbeque sauce
- ¼ cup light brown sugar
- ½ cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 2 large cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 extra large onion, chopped
- 8 hamburger buns, split
- 1 ½ teaspoons dried thyme
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Fill the slow cooker halfway with vegetable oil. Pour the barbecue sauce, vinegar, & the chicken broth into the slow cooker with the pork roast.
- Mix in chili powder, onion, garlic, thyme, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, and yellow mustard. Cook covered on Low for 10–12 hours or High for 5–6 hours until pork readily shreds with a fork.
- Pull the pork from the slow cooker & shred it properly using two forks. The shredded pork should be put back into the slow cooker, and the cooking fluids should be stirred in.

- Now enjoy your slow-cooked pulled pork.

Tips For Pulled Pork Recipes Crockpot:
- If you check the pork and find that it is not soft, it likely requires additional time, so cover it again and continue cooking.
- If your pork produces a great deal of liquid, remove some of the liquid before reintroducing the shredded pork. Before serving, we like to whisk in extra barbecue sauce.
- A slow cooker can be used to keep pork warm.
- Serve with garlicky mashed potatoes, wrap in tortillas with taco toppings, or go the sandwich route: pile it on a toasted, crusty baguette with a heaping scoop of coleslaw.
- Before mixing the pulled pork with the barbecue sauce, stir 1 teaspoon of finely chopped chipotle chilies into the sauce.
