The BEST pork barbeque recipe available. It is a modified version of a long time secret pork barbeque recipe of a now out of business barbeque restaurant in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. It can be made the day that it is to be served, but the best is to cook it the day before, place it in the refrigerator overnight, and then heat it in the slow cooker the next day to serve. This way, it soaks up all of the added flavoring.

  1. In a bowl, mix the wine, white pepper, liquid smoke, garlic, black pepper, pepper sauce, and Worcestershire sauce. Place pork in a slow cooker, and cover with the sauce mixture. Cover, and cook 4 to 5 hours on Low, or until the meat shreds easily.
  2. Shred the pork with a fork. Mix in the barbeque sauce, onion, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, and yellow bell pepper. Continue cooking 30 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.
  3. Place pork in a strainer to remove excess liquid, pushing down with a large spoon to extract as much moisture as possible. Liquid may be reserved as a dipping sauce.

I followed this to the letter but when tasting the sauce, decided to add 1/4 cup brown sugar to just seemed to round out the flavor. The flavor is just as good as the smells that waft through the kitchen while it cooks. It was a winner at our house and I will be trying this on beef and chicken too! Thank you for the recipe.


Well, this is NOT the best barbeque I've had..Pork was tasty and tender, but the sauce was just not a favorite with me. I appreciate the post, however.


After living in Harrisburg for 20 years, I can see why the restruant that served this is closed. There have to be a dozen places in central PA that serve a tastier barbecue pork. I wouldn't waste the time to make it again.
