Vinegar Based BBQ Sauce w/ Slow Cooker Carolina Pulled Pork
Vinegar Based BBQ sauce is smoky and sharp with a very distinct sweet heat. It’s super easy to make and perfectly compliments barbecue chicken, smoked ribs, and this family favorite slow cooker Carolina pulled pork recipe.
Add all of the ingredients to a large 32 oz. mason jar and give it a god shake, shake, shake until all of the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is well combined. Pour 3/4 of the prepared vinegar sauce on the pork in the slow cooker.
Add the remaining sauce to a pot and bring to a boil. Take off the heat and allow to cool to room temperature. Serve on the side of pulled pork sandwiches, for drizzling.
For the Slow Cooker Carolina Pulled Pork:
Put the meat in the pot of a large 6 quart slow cooker. Pour in 3/4 of the prepared vinegar sauce and 1-2 tablespoons of liquid smoke.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or until the meat is tender. While the meat is cooking, add the remaining sauce to a pot and bring to a boil. Take off the heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
Remove the roast from the slow cooker and allow to slightly cool. Reserve 1.5 cups of the cooking liquid and discard the rest. Skim the fat from the reserved juice and shred the pork, discarding any large pieces of fat.
Add pulled pork and the cooking juices back to the slow cooker and heat through, drizzling in additional sauce, if needed.
Serve pulled pork on thick bakery rolls w/ your favorite creamy, crunchy coleslaw and a side of extra vinegar bbq sauce for drizzling.
