The Best Ever Simple Crockpot Pulled Pork Sandwiches
serves 12

5 pound pork butt, trimmed of visible fat
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
3 cups Dr Pepper
3 cups KC Style Barbecue Sauce, divided (or your favorite)
12 hamburger buns, split and lightly toasted
12 pickle slices

Combine spices in a small bowl, mix well.  Massage spice mix into pork and place in crockpot.  Pour soda over pork.  Cook on low 5-7 hours, until pork is tender and pulls apart easily.

Drain completely, shred pork using 2 forks, add 2 cups barbecue sauce and cook on low for one hour.  Serve on toasted bun with a pickle slice and more of the remaining 1 cup barbecue sauce.  Enjoy!


  1. Ur recipe calls for 3 cups of bbq sauce. However, in the cooking instructions it says to add only 2 cups?

    1. Hi Chris! The remaining cup is for topping the sandwiches when you serve it.

      Hope that helps. I really recommend using the KC BBQ Sauce found here


    2. divided - 2 for cooking - the other cup for serving with the sandwiches

  2. When do I put the crockpot in my smoker? ha ha ha just kidding

    I put two pork butts (errr Boston Roast since all the pork names are changing now, thanks Guvment) on my Egg Friday night and I spent the next 14 hours keeping an eye on them, not sleeping. The crockpot is a reasonable option for people who aren't insane like me :)

    1. First time I used my crockpot the glass lid shattered!! Thank god I was up!!

  3. can you use something other than dr pepper? I don't drink that and hate to waste

    1. Maple syrup or Cane Syrup is even better

  4. I have seen another recipe that used Coke or Diet Coke.

  5. A brown sugar and water mixture might work.

  6. I've used GingerAle before because I didn't have Dr. Pepper. You can use any soda. I've seen recipes using orange soda even.

  7. I am trying Pepsi. Just happened to have a can.

  9. Is the pork roast used boneless?

    1. I buy mine with bone if its cheaper and just cut it out.I also use the cheapest pork on sale like newyork shoulder roasts.Just cut the fat and bone and divide into what you want

  10. We use rootbeer and it is really good!

  11. I live in Australia. It seems that most recipes ask for kosher salt. I can not find. what is it? reg salt?

    1. Basically, it's just larger crystal salt.

  12. Basically, it's larger crystal salt

  13. Can I just say "YUM"!!! Pinned it!!

  14. Thank you for this recipe. I don't have a pulled pork in my database so I might as well start with the best. And perfect for football season. Pinned.
