HIghly rated by my son Mikey, a pulled pork aficionado, this slow-cooked pulled pork recipe received his highest ratings.


  • 1 onion, peeled and sliced
  • 1 7-pound pork shoulder, also known as Boston butt
  • 2 bottles root beer
  • 2 12-ounce bottles barbecue sauce
  • 10 brioche or King’s Hawaiian hamburger buns
  • Shredded cabbage or coleslaw


  1. Put the onions in the bottom of the slow cooker. Place the pork shoulder on top of the onions. Pour in two bottles of root beer and cover. Set to low and cook for 12 hours.
  2. Use tongs to remove the shoulder from the cooker and dump the residual liquid down the drain. Let the roast cool down until it is cool enough to shred. Shred the pork into bite-sized pieces taking care to discard any fatty parts.
  3. Put the shredded pork back in the slow cooker and add 1.5 bottles of barbecue sauce. Stir to coat the pork. Turn the slow cooker back on low and cook for another two hours.
  4. Serve on buns with coleslaw or shredded cabbage.
