This pulled pork recipe is an oven barbecued pork roast, shredded then heated with barbecue sauce, onions, and seasonings. A great dish for a party or big meal, or freeze the pulled pork in batches. Keep it warm in the slow cooker for a party.

Cook Time: 4 hours

Total Time: 4 hours


  • 1 large pork butt or shoulder, about 7 to 9 pounds
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning or seasoned salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons oil
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup vinegar


Lay a large sheet of heavy duty foil in a roasting pan. Place pork roast on foil. Rub pork all over with garlic and seasonings. Arrange onion slices over top. Wrap foil around the pork roast. Bake at 350° for about 4 to 5 hours, to about 185° F. The meat should be falling apart. Let the roast cool a bit, then begin to shred with forks or chop, discarding as much of the excess fat as possible.

Sauté chopped onions in a little oil until tender.

Put shredded pork in slow cooker or a large saucepan or Dutch oven. Blend in vinegar and barbecue sauce, along with the cooked chopped onion. Heat thoroughly on LOW setting or over low heat; serve hot with split buns, coleslaw, and beans, if desired. Also great with potato salad for a bigger meal.

Excellent pulled pork !!, Member TomGallacher

I used this recipe and it was fantastic. I used a 4lb pork loin and cooked it for 3.5hrs with this recipe. Then added molasses, red wine vinegar, turmeric spice, bbq spices, and ketchup ... it made an excellent sauce and the pork was cooked perfectly at 183 degrees. Thank you !!!
