Smoky BBQ Pork Sandwiches


  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 4 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 lb. bone-in pork shoulder picnic roast, fat trimmed and cut into 1" pieces
  • 2 yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 bottle lager beer
  • 2 cups barbecue sauce
  • 10 onion buns
  • 10 slices smoked Gouda cheese, optional


  1. In small bowl, combine garlic, brown sugar, chili powder, coriander, cayenne and black pepper. Place pork and seasonings into slow-cooker bowl; stir to mix well. Add onions and pour in beer, making sure onions are submerged in liquid. Cover and cook on high 7-8 hours or until pork shreds easily.

Return pork and onions to slow cooker; stir in barbecue sauce. Cover and cook on high 30 minutes. Serve on onion buns with cheese, if desired.
