I just love vinegar-based barbeque. I looked high and low for an easy recipe for North Carolina barbeque; this is it! Be warned; your friends will want the recipe. Eat it with a fork or on rolls with coleslaw.

  1. Trim the fat from the roast; place in slow cooker and cook on Low overnight, at least 8 hours.
  2. To make the sauce, whisk together the vinegar, melted butter, salt, lemon juice, crushed red pepper, hot sauce, black pepper, and sugar in a bowl.
  3. Carefully remove the roast to a cutting board. Pull the meat from the bone with a fork. Return the pork to the slow cooker. Pour the sauce over the pulled pork. Simmer for 1 hour more.

We loved it and it really took me back "home"! I didn't add the butter, didn't think it needed the extra fat, and eliminated the lemon juice. All the other ingredients were combined and poured over the roast and the slow cooker did the rest. We had the typical cole slaw, baked beans and hush puppy sides and it was outstanding! This is the typical Eastern North Carolina style barbeque and delicious.


This was not the best NC BBQ I have ever had, but it was pretty darn good, and it was super easy to make. We will definitely be making this again. I prepared this recipe exactly as written, and did not find it to Vinegary, Its North Carolina BBQ, that is what it is supposed to taste like.


use less vinagar and a little more sugar we like this and have made it several times.
