Jack Daniel's Double Kick Crock Pot Pulled Pork Sandwich


Jack Daniels Double Kick Crockpot Pulled Pork Sandwich is fabulously moist, so tender it falls apart and unbelievably delish. Perfect meal anytime.  Packed with our favorite smoky and sweet Jack flavors with a double kick!  

Chad has been asking for pulled pork sandwiches for months.  As much as I love, love, love The Best Ever Simple Crockpot Pulled Pork Sandwich I wanted to try something new.  So I decided to give Jack Daniel's a try.  I mean I have yet to be disappointed in Jack when cooking.

I really dig this whole flavor profile that we've developed.  Our Jack Daniel's Double Kick recipes features smoky and sweet flavors that are just a bit tangy and have little kick from chili peppers and whiskey, it truly is magical. 

And let me tell you...  Oh my heavens!  What a great idea Jack crockpot pork was.

The pork butt is simmered in a fantastic spice blend and Dr Pepper until it is so tender that it falls apart.  Then you add Jack Daniels and Jack Daniels Double Kick Barbecue Sauce and cook one more hour.  The end result is a moist and tender unbelievably delicious pulled pork!

This is definitely a contender for our favorite crock pot pulled pork, but with such different flavors I think they can both be favorites.  So, which is your favorite?

Dinner's Ready!

  1. I need to give this sauce a try when I smoke a couple of shoulders this weekend.

  2. When you mean drain completely does that mean the soda to from the crock pot?

  3. when you mean drain completely does that mean the soda from the crock pot also ?

    1. Everything. Leaving just the meat. Enjoy! Let us know how it goes.

  4. I do want to try this, but I think I will cook a little less. Went to Va. last month and tried all kinds of pulled pork sandwiches because that is a reasonable price and they were good. The best was one people were selling off the road because the pork wasn't too mushy. One in Va. Beach was way too mushy for me to enjoy, so I'll have to watch for that. What does the Dr. Pepper do when cooking in it. I have seen recipies with all types of soda and wondered what it does. Does it add flavor?

  5. Red chile pepper paste? What is it with on the shelves at the store?

    1. Vegetable section by the fresh herbs

  6. I use Gourmet Garden brand found in the produce section by the fresh herbs. Enjoy and let us know how it goes!

  7. How spicy is this? My husband loves very spicy foods I on the other hand don't. This recipe sounds wonderful.

    1. I did not find it to be too spicy (about medium heat), but you can eliminate the red chile pepper paste or cut in it half. Enjoy and let us know how it goes.

  8. can the pork butt be frozen?

    1. I freeze mine all the time. I will totally cook my pork butt roast; cool completely and then package in my freezer lock bags; portions enough just for me and hubby; marked, labeled and dated.
      The BBQ sauce I make separately , put in freezer safe containers and place in freezer and is placed by my pulled pork packages.

  9. Donna, your recipes are amazing!! Thank you sooooo much! God bless.

  10. This was amazing! The perfect balance of sweet and spicy.
    I added a little extra sauce to the meat and still had enough left to fill a quart size jar for later use.
