Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork

Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork – Easy & delicious pulled pork with a bit of sweetness! Perfect for sandwiches, nachos, & much more!

Are you a big fan of pulled pork sandwiches or nachos??  Then you need to try making it at home in your crockpot!  It’s so easy and it’s so delicious!!  

I’ve made pulled pork several times in my crockpot and this time I went for a little bit sweeter flavor.  My husband and I LOVED it!  My step-father said it was too sweet but what does he know?!?  But if you don’t like your pulled pork sweet at all you may want to lessen the honey amount a little.  But I thought it was perfect the way it was!  

What is the best cut of meat for pulled pork?

Pork shoulder is the best cut for pulled pork. It has the right amount of fat to make the meat tender and moist. Just behind the pork shoulder is a pork roast. It comes from the tenderloin and is just what it says – tender.

For this recipe, we used the pork roast because in the slow cooker the meat doesn’t dry out. 

I love pulled pork on so many different dishes.  We put it on stadium rolls for a great sandwich or another favorite of ours is pulled pork nachos.  {It’s made just like my BBQ chicken nachos only substitute the pork for the chicken.}  It’s also really good on top of baked potatoes or in quesadillas.   

Onto the recipe:
