Southern Style Vinegar-Based Pork BBQ (Slow Cooked)

If I made it….it’s easy.

This is a combination of about 5 different recipes plus a few of my own additions based on how I remember my favorite Spoon’s BBQ in North Carolina! Make sure to set aside a long period of time for the slow cooker….it takes about 9 hours total.

 

Ingredients:
4 lbs of pork roast (or I use 2 2lb pork roasts)
2 white or yellow onions
2 cups of apple cider vinegar
2 cups of apple juice
1 tsp of liquid smoke
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp brown sugar
1/2 a bottle of regular/classic BBQ sauce (about 9 oz)

Cut up both onions. Place half the onions in the bottom of the slow cooker or crock pot. Place the pork roast in the slow cooker and top with the rest of the onions.

Mix together 1 cup apple cider, 1 cup apple juice and 1 tsp of liquid smoke and pour over the roast and onions.

Set the slow cooker to cook on low for approximately 6 hours. The roast should be ready to fall apart when you stick a fork in it. Remove the roast and remove the liquid and onions. (Note: You can strain the onions and add them back into the pot if you like….I prefer to discard them.)

Shred the roast and add it back to the slow cooker.

Pour over the shredded pork and cook on low for another 2 hours. Transfer shredded BBQ to another container. I like to chop mine up a bit more before serving.

Serve by itself or on bread for sandwiches! I could eat this for 3 meals a day.

    So nice to see Carolina girls representing the NC BBQ sauce – the secrets out!! My fav. is B’s BBQ in Greenville, NC. I practically grew up on it since it was 5 min. from my home!!:) Mom still sends some FedEX! LOL

      I love B’s BBQ too! My cousin lived in Farmville and we’d smell B’s before we ever got to it when we would go visit her. Later I went to college at ECU you could smell it on campus when the wind blew in the right direction! My parents made me bring some home when I would come home for weekend visits! It’s nice to see another Pirate on here! :)

    How many servings do you estimate this makes (for sandwiches)? I am having a fall open house and this looks perfect to serve our guests, but I may need to make more to make sure I have enough. Thanks – this looks delicious!

    Thank you so much for posting this recipe. We moved from Charlotte to Phoenix, and we miss BBQ so much. It doesn’t mean the same thing out West. Every time we go home to Charlotte to visit we make sure to go to Bill Spoon’s. I am so happy I can make it at home now! :)

    If I only have about a 2.5lb roast how long do you suggest I cook it for?? I don’t have time to go to the store….i’ll 1/2 the whole recipe, but I was just unsure about the cooking time, Thanks, can’t wait to try it,

    Jess,
    (also a Carolina girl dying for some BBQ on the west coast)!!!

    Ashley…This looks great! Where is Spoon’s BBQ? I’m originally from Raleigh and have relocated to Minnesota where all pork BBQ is coated in thick, red BBQ sauce. I’m hoping this will remind me of home.

    As if I didn’t already love you – My dad is from NC and good, vinegar-based BBQ is the best thing EVER. I have another recipe too but I like the sound of this one, marries together the vinegar and the red sauce that my husband likes. Definitely making the list for after the next trip to Costco for pork ;-)

    Thank you for including pictures of the ingredients and step by step instructions. It makes the kitchen less intimidating :D

    This is in my crock pot as I write this. I’m originally from Virginia and when I first had NC BBQ it was love at first taste. I spent many years in the Raleigh area but I’ve since relocated to Wilmington (NC) and Jackson’s is the best here, but I’m hoping this recipe will be terrific. Thank you for posting it. The house smells promising! :)

    Any way to speed this recipe up at all? It’s currently cooking but I had lost track of the time and after 6 hours I’m due to pick my husband up from the airport! And at this rate, even if I didn’t have to pick him up, we won’t eat until 11:30pm – epic fail on my part! :( Hope there’s any way possible haha

    Kelsey says:

    Could I make this without the liquid smoke & still taste ok? My hubby dislikes ANYTHING smoky:(

    Romana says:

    unfortunately this did not turn out yummy at all. the meat was really sour from the vinegar and I used even less than what the recipe stated. I ended up throwing most of the meat away :(

    I will be attempting to make pulled pork tomorrow for the first time and I am glad
    to say I will be using this yummy sounding recipe. Thank You!
