Slow Cooker Pulled Pork


  • 7-8 lb boneless Boston Butt
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ c extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 (12 fl oz) bottles BBQ sauce


Remove netting and cut pork into 3 equal sized pieces. Season pork liberally on all sides with salt and pepper. In a large skillet or Dutch oven, add oil and heat over medium high heat until it shimmers. Add pork and brown on all sides, 1-2 minutes per side. This can be done in batches if needed. Transfer pork to 6 qt or larger slow cooker. Cover and turn heat high for 4-6 hours or until pork reaches an internal temperature of 200°F.

1 to 2 hours before pork is finished, remove pork and drain off the excess liquids. Add 1 bottle of sauce and continue cooking.

Remove pork and place in a dish large enough to pull the meat. Shred meat toss with remaining sauce and serve.
