"Cheater Pulled Pork" Recipe


  • One 5- to 6-pound (2.2-2.7 kg) boneless Boston butt pork roast
  • 1/4 cup favourite rub mix (I used Penzeys Taco Seasoning)
  • 1/2 cup bottled smoke
  • Favourite BBQ sauce (Bull's Eye is my fave)

How to make "Cheater Pulled Pork"

  1. Cut pork butt into largish chunks.
  2. Coat the meat in your favourite rub and place in slow cooker.
  3. Pour in liquid smoke.
  4. Cover and cook 5-6 hours on high, or 10-12 hours on low.
  5. Transfer meat onto cookie tray or cutting board, let cool, and shred (I use two forks, one in each hand, and pull the meat apart that way).
  6. Serve on fave buns or bread with BBQ sauce.

Makes 12-14 servings

    Thank you so much for posting this! I've wanted to try this ever since I heard R.B. Quinn talking about this on NPR, but I didn't get to hear the complete recipe or the name of the book.
