Crockpot Eastern North Carolina Barbeque

Crockpot Eastern North Carolina Barbeque

If you’ve been here for a while, you know there are few things I love more than eastern North Carolina barbeque.  There is nothing like chopped pork with that vinegar sauce.  I am a pretty big snob when it comes to the type of barbeque I’ll eat, so I was nervous about making my own.  But I decided to try Crockpot Eastern North Carolina Barbeque and I am so glad I did!  It was easy and delicious.


If you don’t have Lillie’s Q BBQ Suace, you can still make it this way:


2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp paprika
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Vinegar Dressing:

1 cup cider vinegar
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
2 tsp granulated sugar
2 tsp garlic powder

  1. Place the pork roast in a crock pot with half a bottle of Lillie’s Q BBQ Sauce–ENC.  I didn’t add a rub, salt or pepper.  If you use a rub, make sure you cover all parts.  Then use half the vinegar dressing.  Save the rest for after the pork has cooked.  You can add a layer of yellow onions on the bottom of the crock pot, but I didn’t even do that and it was perfect.
  2. Cook the meat on low for 6-8 hours.  I cooked ours in this crockpot on high for 3.5 hours and it was so tender.
  3. Shred pork.  Serve in sandwiches, over rice, or like we did, with leftover Poole’s Diner macaroni and cheese.

This is the perfect recipe for a lazy, iced in Sunday!
