I've tried several slow cooker pulled pork recipes in the past. Some have been good, but I've always far preferred the smoked version… and for the record, I still do prefer that version. But this is the first slow cooker version I've tried that actually comes close.

Ok back to the recipe at hand… there's a red rub recipe from my favorite BBQ cookbook, and I LOVE the flavor on pork. Obviously, you can't cook ribs or a pork shoulder with just a dry rub – it needs to cook in liquid. But I still wanted the flavor profile.
I decided on a half bottle of BBQ sauce to start with. This is a good base and has all the sweetness that the pork will need in a good crockpot pulled pork – no need to add cola or brown sugar. Some of the main spices in the red rub are paprika, garlic powder and black pepper. So I simply added 1 tablespoon of paprika, 2 cloves of garlic and 1 tsp black pepper. But it also needed a teaspoon of salt for a perfect balance of seasoning. I have also tried this exact recipe with a pork shoulder and it came out amazing, there's just more fat you'll have to manage.
It's not quite the same as smoked pork, but man it is SOO much easier. Just throw the ingredients in the slow cooker and turn it on. BONUS: The last time I made this, I remembered I had some liquid smoke in the cupboard. If you happen to have some, put a few shakes in. It certainly won't hurt.
After 8 hours on low, this should shred apart very easily. Serve on hamburger buns and watch this crockpot pulled pork disappear!
