Easy Shredded Pork BBQ

I am a big fan of shredded pork barbecue, and I always thought that it would difficult to make.  When you see the experts on television, they smoke the meat for hours or days, then shred it and make their own sauce from scratch.  That seemed like a whole lot of work to me, so I just ate other people’s barbecue and did not try to make it myself.

I don’t really remember how I come up with this recipe.  There was probably a similar one printed somewhere that caught my eye and I used that as a starting point.  This is really a cheating recipe since it uses premade sauce, but it doesn’t matter because it is still good.  I have had people I don’t even know come up to me at pot lucks and tell me that this is the best barbecue they have had.  I am not saying that to brag, but to let the home cooks like myself know that they can do this, too!  I promise that it is really easy.

2 lb pork roast

seasoning salt and ground black pepper to taste

1 cup water

1 bottle honey bbq sauce


Sprinkle the roast liberally with the seasoning salt and pepper.  Place the roast in a slow cooker, pour the water over the roast, and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.

After the roast is done, place it on a cutting board or plate.  Discard the liquid in the cooker.  Shred the roast with two forks and place back in the cooker.  Pour about half of the bottle of bbq sauce over the shredded meat and stir to combine.  Cook on low for another 1-2 hours or until heated through.  Reserve the remaining sauce for dipping.
