Smokehouse Style Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Whenever I don't have much time to cook and I want to make a crowd pleasing meal, I make my Smokehouse Style Slow Cooker Pulled Pork. It is quick and easy and requires no babysitting! Just put the seasoned pork roast in the crockpot, and you are in business! You can come back in 6-8 hours, and after a little shredding, dinner is done.

Smokehouse Style Slow Cooker Pulled Pork


4 lb Boneless Rolled Boston Pork Roast

1 tbs cumin

1/2 tbs paprika

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

1/2 tbs dried oregano

1/2 tbs Nature’s Seasoning

1 tsp cayenne pepper

1 tsp cardamom

1 tsp chili powder


  1. Make sure the pork roast is thawed. If it is frozen, take it out of the freezer to thaw the day before you plan to cook it.

  2. Take the pork roast out of the packaging, and place it either on a plate or right inside the crockpot. It will have string keeping it together. Leave that on.

  3. Sprinkle the cumin, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, nature's seasoning, cayenne pepper, cardamom, and chili powder over the pork roast. If you do not have Nature's Seasoning, you can substitute with equal parts salt and black pepper. However, I recommend buying Nature's Seasoning because it is a great basic seasoning for just about everything. Low Sodium Natures Seasoning is best.

  4. Rub all of the spices into the pork roast on all sides, so that it is coated. See picture below.

  5. Put the pork roast into the crockpot if you have not already done so. Do not add any liquid to the crockpot.

  6. Turn the crockpot on high for 6 hours or low for 8 hours. Go out and have some fun, dinner will be ready when you get back!

  7. Return 6-8 hours later. Take the pork roast out of the crockpot. Cut the strings off.

  8. Shred the pork roast, and enjoy!
