The Best Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

If you love the savory flavor of tender, hickory brown sugar pulled pork, you will love how easy it is to make in your slow cooker, crock pot, pressure cooker or Instant Pot.

We used a very large over 8 lb pork roast for this, so we a larger amount of spices. You can adjust the recipe for smaller or larger cuts of meat.
