  1. Place pork in a slow cooker and season to taste with garlic powder, poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper. Add quartered onion, apple, and 3 celery stalks. Pour chicken broth into slow cooker.
  2. Cook on Low until very tender, about 8 hours. Transfer pork to a large platter and discard juice and vegetables. Shred pork with a fork and return to the slow cooker.
  3. Prepare barbecue sauce while pork is cooking. Melt butter in a large saucepan or small Dutch oven over medium heat; cook and stir 2 cups celery and 1 1/2 cups onion until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add ketchup, water, vinegar, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, liquid smoke, and 1 tablespoon garlic powder; mix. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thickened, about 10 minutes. Pour barbecue sauce over shredded pork.
  4. Continue cooking pork on Low heat until flavors combine, about 2 hours.


  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

Very good. Family loved it. I used a 2 1/2 lb. Pork loin and didn't have any celery, but followed the rest of the recipe as written. Served with buttered buns and seasoned Curly Fries.

This was so yummy! I cooked a 6.5 lb. pork loin roast for 12 hours in the slow cooker exactly as the recipe specifies. It was fall-apart tender. Didn't make bbq sauce, although it sounds real...

Made this according to directions and it was excellent! Made slaw and had BBQ sliders. Excellent ! Instead of throwing the broth away, I froze it for future use.

Best pulled pork, but I substituted the homemade bbq sauce with sweet baby rays.

Made exactly as recipe is written and it was awesome! My husband said it reminded him of pulled pork his Grandmother used to make. Trying again w/sweet baby rays just to try as quicker option.

That was pretty awesome. Unfortunately at 6:00 am I didn't have the apple but I did taste the flavor with the apple cider vinegar. It was really good

Cut the sauce recipe in half and it was still more than needed for a 5 lb loin. Also added a little "heat" to the sauce. Will make it again.

made this for a camping trip and it wowed!! very delicious and easy.

It was delicious, but served a lot more than the recipe said it would.
