  • Slow Cooker
  • Bowls
  • Fat Separator


  • 1 (4-7-pound) Pork Shoulder (pork butt)
  • 1 28-ounce bottle Barbecue Sauce (we like Sweet Baby Ray's)
  • ¼ cup Sriracha (or more if you like spicy)
  • ¼ cup Honey
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Chili Powder

To Serve

  • Slider Buns
  • Cole Slaw


  • Place the pork shoulder roast into the crock with the fat cap side up.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the barbecue sauce, Sriracha, honey, salt, pepper, and chili powder. Mix well.
  • Pour the sauce over the pork shoulder, covering it.
  • Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook the pork on Low for 6-8 hours, depending on the size of the roast. You want it to be very tender and shred easily with a fork.
  • When done, scrape off the fat from the roast and discard it. Then transfer the pork to a large mixing bowl. Shred the meat using two forks.
  • Carefully pour the drippings from the crockpot to the fat separator. Then pour most of the drippings back into the meat. Stir well. Pour in as much as you like. Taste to make sure you have enough for good flavor.
  • If you will be serving from the crock, return the pork to the slow cooker and use the keep warm setting. Be sure to add some extra drippings if you do this.
  • Serve on slider buns topped with coleslaw, or over rice or mashed potatoes.


You can use a bone-in or boneless pork shoulder, also called a pork butt, for this recipe.
