  • 2-3 lbs Boston Butt (Pork)
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic Salt
  • 12 oz. Root Beer
  • 18 oz. BBQ Sauce
  • 4-8 Rolls (optional)
  • Country Apple Slaw (optional)
Cooking time: 8 Hours Serving: 4-8 people

My family loves Pulled Pork! It is one of our favorite things to get at a few restaurants, and is actually super simple to make. This has become one of my favorite recipes. It goes in the crock pot in the morning and dinner is ready without much effort soon after I get home from work.

Place the Pork into the crock pot. Sprinkle the garlic salt on both sides of the pork. Pour the root beer into the crock pot; it does not need to completely cover the pork. Cook on low for about 8 hours. I start this before work and have never had any problem cooking it for longer, you could also cook it on high for a shorter amount of time but I’m not totally sure what that would be.


After the meat looks cooked through, take it out of the crock pot and shred it. My technique is using two forks and pulling it apart. After cooking all day it basically falls apart, so this should be pretty easy. Discard the liquid that was in the crock pot. Place the shredded pork back into the now empty crock pot and add the BBQ sauce. Now you are ready to serve. The most classic way to serve this (and my favorite) is on a roll with some Country Apple Slaw. This can also be served on it’s own, as a pizza topping, on salad… basically the possibilities are endless.
