It will be fall-off-the-bone tender at the end of the cooking time. Remove the roast from the crockpot. You may need to use a slotted spoon to get it all. Shred the meat using two forks. Discard the bones. Reserve about 1/2 cup of juices in the crockpot and discard the rest. Return shredded meat to crockpot, add reserved juices, and pour in the entire bottle of barbecue sauce. Mix well. Set to low, cover, and cook an additional 30 minutes.

  1. This is the easiest BBQ pork recipe EVER! I used about a 6 lb pork butt and doubled the spices and used 2 of the smaller cans of PEPSI since we didn’t have COKE. Fall of the bone indeed ! I saved back a cup of the liquid after shredding and added it with a bottle of KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce. Mmmmm good! Very moist! Making my second batch today, as I’m taking it to family this Memorial Day weekend.

  2. Hi I got 2 7lb boneless roast to do pulled pork for a picnic should I add more seasoning coke and bbq sauce or keep it how it is

    1. Hi, Samantha! You may have already had your picnic, but I wanted to respond anyway. I would double the seasoning to make sure both roasts are covered well. I don’t think my crockpot could hold 2 7lb roasts, but if yours can just make sure there is enough liquid to cover half of the meat. Some liquid will cook out of the roasts as they cook. As for BBQ sauce, that’s up to you. If you prefer a lot of sauce (my husband does) then go ahead and double it. If you just want a little barbecue taste then one will be fine. Enjoy that picnic!!!

      1. Thank you for responding I haven’t had it yet not till the end of August and I’m using two crockpots to make it so I should keep recipe the same or what I do both weight 7lb

  3. What size roast did you use for this? I have 9 lb roast and I didn’t know if I should use 1 or 2 cans of coke and double the spices… Thanks

    1. We are a family of 7, so I usually cook a large roast. Even for a large roast I use the same amount of Coke and spices listed in the recipe. You can add more Coke if you want or just an extra 1 cup of water. The liquid doesn’t need to cover the roast. I hope you love it!!!

      1. 1TBLS salt seems like a lot? Was this right. And how many lbs of meat? Again you didn’t answer? I just put in only 2 lbs. hence the salt.

        1. Cindy,
          I use a 4-5 lb boneless pork roast or a 7-9 lb bone-in roast. If you are using a smaller roast you can decrease all the spices to 1/2 Tbs. The spices are combined to make a rub, so you need a good amount to cover a large roast. Of course, any of the spices can be adjusted to your own taste.
          Hope that helps!
