Carolina Pulled Pork (Slow Cooker)

This is your shortcut solution to Carolina Pulled Pork Barbecue. While it lacks the authentic flavor of slow smoked barbecue, if it's all you have to work with, then go for it.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 12 hours

Total Time: 12 hours, 15 minutes

Yield: Serves 6


  • 3-4 pounds pork roast, Boston butt or pork shoulder
  • 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • black pepper and salt to taste
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups of barbecue sauce


Trim pork roast of excess fat. Lightly season with salt and pepper. Place in a slow cooker or Crock-Pot. Pour vinegar over roast and turn to make sure the vinegar reaches all sides. Cook on low for 10 to 12 hours or until roast is tender enough to pull apart with your fingers. Then remove roast and discard liquid. Shred pork roast into small pieces and return it to the slow cooker. Add barbecue sauce and stir to mix. There should be enough barbecue sauce to coat the meat but not so much as to make it runny.

Excellent Stuff!, Member turnerdee

I made this for dinner and it is absolutely the yummiest and easiest. We put cole slaw on our sandwiches and extra sauce at the table for the true Carolina pulled pork sandwich. This recipe is going to be used on a regular basis at our house!
