How to make it

  • First you want to slice one onion and place in crockpot.
  • Then put in the roast and cover with the other onion, sliced.
  • Addin the ginger ale.
  • Cover this and let this cook on LOW for about approx. 12 hours.
  • Now remove the meat, strain and save the onions getting rid of all liquid.
  • Then with your hands, shred the meat, discarding any remaining fat, bones or skin. Most of the fat will have melted away.
  • Next return the shredded meat and the onions to the crockpot, stir in the barbecue sauce. Continue to cook for aprox. 6 hours on LOW.
  • You can serve with hamburger buns or rolls and additional barbecue sauce. This freezes well.

    I have been craving BBQ pulled pork but wanted to make it my self.
    It was easier than I thought. It was really good.

    This is a pretty decent recipe...I added a few garlic cloves, and a dry rub for a little bit more of a kick. Also be sure to use a spicy ginger ale and not something sweet (i.e. Vernor's, and most cheap store brands). I liked shewepp's with this recipe. Also be sure not to use "cheap" BBQ sauce. is a good site for BBQ sauce reviews if your looking for a good one, but cheap doesn't mean inexpensive. I like the Famous Dave's, and Jack Daniels sauces as well, and they are value priced...

    This recipe is amazingly easy and the pork is so incredibly tender and moist. I am by far the worst meat/roast cook in the entire world, and this made me look like I'm a pro. This recipe will be put in the "family" recipe box. A couple of notes of unavoidable changes I had to make. Although, it appears this process is so fail proof, even I couldn't mess it up. I did not have ginger ale, so I used 7-Up, which was fine. I can see how the ginger ale would give it that special flavor, so I'm going to us it next time. As mentioned above, I also used a high quality BBQ sauce, not supermarket variety. My children don't like unions, but I left them in and no one even noticed they were there. I also used a 6 lb roast, so I increased the initial cooking time to 14 hours, but I would bet 12 hours still would have been fine. I didn't cook for a full 6 hours in the final stage, more like 4 hours. I put the roast in the night before, the next morning I did the shredding and dinner was waiting for us that night. Perfect and easy. We made these on the large sandwich rolls and it made about 18 very large sandwiches. Thanks again!

    I would say it would serve ~5-6 big eaters, or 7-8 small eaters. I made it with ~3 pounds of pork loin. The ginger ale adds a unique flavor. It was delicious!

    This sounds great and easy. I need a recipe for 20 people - I wonder if I can double this in a large crock pot. Anyone know?

    Just for you that don't like onions, but are fine with the taste of them, you can actually make this with the onions, but after cooking for the initial 12 hours, don't put them back in.

    This sounds great but 18 hours seems a bit longer than I want to wait for dinner.

    This is an OUTSTANDING recipe!!! I tried it four months ago and can't believe no one has commented on it yet. I came back to the site to print another copy of it for a friend and decided that I should sign up just to be able to post this comment. This recipe also works great with pork tenderloin. Also, I liked it best when I used a super good, gourmet bbq sauce rather than the standard super-market fare. The better sauce made it taste like it was from a restaurant. This is a terrific recipe that will make everyone think you slaved for hours making an awesome pulled pork. Thank you Floridasunshine for posing it!!!!
