Slow Roasted BBQ Pork

The majority of BBQ purists will vehemently disagree with this post.

Last week I made a slow roasted bbq pork roast without a grill or a smoker.

I used a crockpot.

I started with a Boston butt (highly ideal for bbq-ing and on sale, of course), poured on a sufficient quantity of Liquid Smoke, and then covered it all over with the All-Purpose Spice Rub which clung to the pork because of the Liquid Smoke. This was done on Thursday evening. On Friday morning, I started the crockpot on low at 6am and it was ready by 6pm.

I will admit that the Liquid Smoke only adds a hickory or mesquite component that real wood would have enhanced. However, the spice rub held in the juices of the Boston butt and added a remarkable flavor to it. I served it with a side of baked beans and baby dill pickles. The store-bought bbq sauce remained untouched.

I am an avid griller and at our lake house in Oklahoma we love to smoke meats as well. Despite all that, this meal turned out so well as to be an alternative for winter cooking when the weather will not accommodate.

    Sometimes it is simply too hot or too cold to go fire up the grill. I will have to give this a try!! I love the crock pot!!

      You’ll find it surprisingly easy. It’s a good recipe in a pinch. But nothin’ beats BBQ-in’
